Advanced GNC algorithms (estimators, guidance laws, controllers) for kinetic kill interceptors against advanced maneuvering threats will be developed and demonstrated. The advanced GNC algorithms will substantially increase the intercept accuracy against highly maneuvering targets while minimizing the interceptor divert acceleration and delta-v requirements. These advanced algorithms will be incorporated into a Six-Degree-of-Freedom (6-DOF) simulation as a testbed to verify the algorithm suite performance against a range of target characteristics. This development effort will provide a set of algorithms that cover the aspects of homing guidance from compensation of the seeker signals to command of the control effectors.
