Abstract : A software program was developed to visualize a target missile encounter, overlay point scatterers on target facet models, and display aimpoint tracking positions. It can be used to develop an intuitive understanding of the interaction of various guidance parameters with the target dynamics, which may be most useful for guidance data that resulted in suboptimal fuzing. Guidance input data were generated by MPSIM2 (a mature simulation program for a multimode Patriot missile), processed, and then stored. The software was tested on guidance data generated with targets consisting of a single point scatterer.
