Abstract
THE MISSILE AUTOPILOT DESIGN PROBLEM IS A NONLINEAR TIME VARYING STOCHASTIC CONTROL PROBLEM. PREVIOUS APPROACHES BASED ON EITHER CLASSICAL DESIGN OR LINEAR MULTIVARIABLE DESIGN HAVE PROVIDED INDEQUATE FOR THE NEW GENERATION OF HIGHLY MANEUVERABLE AIR-TO-AIR MISSILES. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL INVESTIGATE NONLINEAR DECOUPLING AND BIFURCATION ANALYSIS METHODOLOGIES FOR MISSILE AUTOPILOT DESIGN. THE PRIMARY EMPHASIS WILL BE ON BASIC RESEARCH SINCE THE FIELD OF NONLINEAR CONTROL DESIGN IS STILL AT AN EMBRYONIC STAGE.
