Response surface based performance analysis of an air-defense missile system

Günaydın, Kerem
In this thesis, response surface based performance analysis of an air defense missile system was performed. System performance defined as the probability of hit is determined using a conventional grid analysis in order to set up a control group. Then, some experiments were designed to construct response surfaces (RSM). Simulation model was run for these experiment points. Response surfaces for the whole operational area of an air defense missile system is developed using these experiments, so as to be able to predict the system performance without running at every sample point for different types of target engagement scenarios. The PoH (Probability of Hit) graphics related to these scenarios were obtained and presented. Finally, the PoH graphics regarding to the RSM experimental designs were compared with the ones generated from GRID analysis.


Missile autopilot design by projective control theory
Doruk, Reşat Özgür; Kocaoğlan, Erol; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, autopilots are developed for missiles with moderate dynamics and stationary targets. The aim is to use the designs in real applications. Since the real missile model is nonlinear, a linearization process is required to get use of systematic linear controller design techniques. In the scope of this thesis, the linear quadratic full state feedback approach is applied for developing missile autopilots. However, the limitations of measurement systems on the missiles restrict the availability of ...
Adaptive control of guided missiles
Tiryaki Kutluay, Kadriye; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2011)
This thesis presents applications and an analysis of various adaptive control augmentation schemes to various baseline flight control systems of an air to ground guided missile. The missile model used in this research has aerodynamic control surfaces on its tail section. The missile is desired to make skid to turn maneuvers by following acceleration commands in the pitch and yaw axis, and by keeping zero roll attitude. First, a linear quadratic regulator baseline autopilot is designed for the control of the...
Response Surface Based Performance Analysis of an Air-Defense Missile System
Gunaydin, Kerem; Cimen, Tayfun; Tekinalp, Ozan (2014-03-08)
The overall performance of an Air Defense Missile System (ADMS), identified as the probability of hit (PoH) performance, is evaluated using full grid analysis approach and response surface approach. For this purpose, a very detailed six degrees of freedom missile simulation model is employed, which contains over 1000 parameters. These parameters are varied with prescribed uncertainties for performing Monte-Carlo runs to estimate the PoH of a hypothetical missile. Although such a high-fidelity model is neces...
Fuzzy logic guidance system design for guided missiles
Vural, A. Özgür; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Merttopçuoğlu, Osman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
This thesis involves modeling, guidance, control, and flight simulations of a canard controlled guided missile. The autopilot is designed by a pole placement technique. Designed autopilot is used with the guidance systems considered in the thesis. Five different guidance methods are applied in the thesis, one of which is the famous proportional navigation guidance. The other four guidance methods are different fuzzy logic guidance systems designed considering different types of guidance inputs. Simulations ...
Aeroservoelastic modeling of a missile control
Nalcı, Mehmet Ozan; Kayran, Altan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2013)
In this thesis, aeroservoelastic modeling of a typical Missile Control Fin was performed. MSC®PATRAN, MSC®NASTRAN, MSC®FlightLoads and Dynamics, MATLAB® and MATLAB®Simulink were used for technical computing, modeling and simulation throughout the study. Linear models of the control fin structure, aerodynamics and servo-actuator system were developed, so as to be able to analyze the aeroservoelastic system in frequency and time domains. The flutter characteristics of the missile control fin for different fli...
