Title: GUIDANCE LAWS FOR NAVIGATING VEHICLES
Abstract:
A system of providing guidance laws for maneuvering a vehicle for reducing or eliminating miss distance to a target including a system configured to provide a command for maneuvering the vehicle towards a target. The system is configured to repeatedly perform the following stages until eliminating the miss distance, including: propagating vehicle's equation of motion as a result of the command while reducing or eliminating lack of consistency between the assumptions made to calculate the maneuver command and the actual performance when attempting to realize the command. Then, calculating miss distance to the target and updating the command for reducing or eliminating the miss distance and sending the command to a steering system of the vehicle.
