Abstract : Proportional Navigation and Command To Line Of Sight missile guidance are explored. A system flow graph is developed for each guidance technique. The block transfer functions are developed and a state space representation of the system is defined. The missile systems are then tested using one two-dimensional engagement and two three-dimensional engagement scenarios. The final three-dimensional scenario introduces measurement noise in order to evaluate the effect of noise on the guidance algorithms. The engagement results are then compared to analyze the miss distance of each type of missile guidance.
