Missile endgame analysis via multiobjective optimization

By N. Patel, A.J. Chipperfield and A.J. Keane


The traditional approach to improving the lethality of a missile has been to concentrate efforts in the guidance and control systems to improve accuracy and agility. In this paper, we consider how optimizing the endgame, the final few milliseconds before detontation, can yield improvements in overall lethality. As there is likely to be uncertainty in both the target parameters and missile coordinates, a multiobjective problem is developed so that the robustness of a solution can be traded against its efficacy. The ability to quickly determine promising endgames is likely to be of benefit when exploiting modern control schemes, such as MPC, that offer improved accuracy and agility
