About this book

Though originally inspired by military applications, the advent of missile guidance and control systems has led to applications in a variety of fields -- in robotics, industrial process control, and in commercial transportation networks such as Global Positioning System technology. This book offers a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the technology behind tactical and strategic missiles and the guidance, control, and instrumentation required to reach a given "target."

Topics covered include: missile aerodynamic forces and moments, the missile mathematical model, weapon delivery, GPS (Global Positioning System) and TERCOM (terrain contour matching) guidance, cruise missile mechanization equations, and a detailed analysis of ballistic missile guidance laws.

The presentation assumes familiarity with calculus, ordinary differential equations, and some knowledge of modern control theory. The text is replete wuith practical examples designed to illustrate important concepts. This book will be an essential resource for students of aeronautical/aerospace engineering, as well as practicing engineers involved in the design, development, and analysis of modern aerospace guidance and control systems.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book under review belongs to that rare category of books that are written by practitioners who have a deep understanding of the real world systems as well as the core academic issues. I recommend this excellent book to all students, practitioners, experts, and academics interested in missile guidance and control. … I would like to commend the author … . I am sure that this book will go down well with the missile guidance and control community … ." (Debasish Ghose, International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control, Vol.16 (5), 2006)
