Abstract : A terminal miss sensitivity analysis was performed for a linearized, time invariant missile system in a two dimensional plane. First the missile system equations were derived including target modeling, seeker modeling and proportional guidance law modeling. A computer program was written to determine the sensitivity of terminal miss to aberration error slope, target bandwidth and RMS acceleration, and noise bandwidth and RMS magnitude. The RMS acceleration of the target was found to have the greatest effect and aberration error slope the least. (Author)
