Abstract : A proper mathematical model is constructed according to the kinematic equations of space interception. After the component of the relative velocity normal to the line of sight is observed using a nonlinear observer design method with two canonical forms, the problem of estimating the range between interceptor and the target during infrared terminal guidance of space interception is solved. Numerical simulation verifies the above results.
