Abstract : The problem of designing flight control system for high performance anti-air missiles is discussed in this report. The research addresses three areas of missile autopilot design. The first area investigates the application of nonlinear H-infinity optimal control for an integrated aerodynamic/thrust vector controlled missile. The second area investigates the design of autopilots for missiles using on-off reaction control valve actuators. A sliding mode control law is developed using H-infinity design methods. The third area focused on developing nonconservative robustness analysis algorithms for gain scheduled missile autopilots.
