Abstract : Basic development of the estimation, guidance, and control algorithms for guidance of an airborne missile during air-to-air combat engagements are examined. The extended Kalman filter is improved through the use of sample measurement statistics, through time-weighting the measurements, and through iterating within the Kalman filter. Numerical results are presented for comparing the performance of different filters.
