The objective of the proposal is to develop and extend to 6-DOF missile-target engagement and dynamic models of the integrated guidance-control and filtering-target-missile state estimation algorithms to achieve the hit-to-kill accuracy against targets performing evasive maneuvers, including spiraling motion. In order to validate the performance of the sliding mode control (SMC) observers and robust-to-noise differentiators for the purpose of computing feedback command of the proposed integrated guidance/control system, the homing loop will be simulated in a software-hardware test bed.
