Abstract : The problem considered is a two-dimensional, constant velocity, point model of a target in an encounter with a proportional navigation pursurer. The horizontal plane is chosen so that the effects of gravity may be neglected. Constraints on the turning rate and time delays in both the pursuer's and target's guidance system are included. The sensitivity of the miss distance to variations in the parameters associated with pursurer and evader are presented. (Author)
