This paper considers the rescheduling of surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) for a naval task group (TG), where a set of SAMs have already been scheduled to intercept a set of anti-ship missiles (ASMs). In missile defense, the initial engagement schedule is developed according to the initial state of the defensive and attacking units. However, unforeseen events may arise during the engagement, creating a dynamic environment to be handled, and making the initial schedule infeasible or inefficient. In this study, the initial engagement schedule of a TG is assumed to be disrupted by the occurrence of a destroyed ASM, the breakdown of a SAM system, or an incoming new target ASM. To produce an updated schedule, a new biobjective mathematical model is formulated that maximizes the no-leaker probability value for the TG and minimizes the total deviation from the initial schedule. With the problem shown to be NP-hard, some special cases are presented that can be solved in polynomial time. We solve small size problems by the augmented epsilon-constraint method and propose heuristic procedures to generate a set of nondominated solutions for larger problems. The results are presented for different size problems and the total effectiveness of the model is evaluated.


Varying mass missile dynamics, guidance & control
Günbatar, Yakup; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
The focus of this study is to be able to control the air-to-surface missile throughout the entire flight, with emphasis on the propulsion phase to increase the impact range of the missile. A major difficulty in controlling the missile during the propulsion phase is the important change in mass of the missile. This results in sliding the center of gravity (cg) point and changing inertias. Moreover, aerodynamic coefficients and stability derivatives are not assumed to be constant at predetermined ranges; conv...
End-to-end networks for detection and tracking of micro unmanned aerial vehicles
Aker, Cemal; Kalkan, Sinan; Department of Computer Engineering (2018)
As the number of micro unmanned aerial vehicles (mUAV) increases, several threats arise. Hence, there is a need for a system that can detect and track them. In this thesis, an object detection model based on convolutional neural networks for mUAV detection, and a novel end-to-end object tracking architecture are proposed. To solve the scarce data problem for training the detection network, an algorithm for creating an extensive artificial dataset by combining background-subtracted real images is proposed. I...
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 ...
Sliding mode guidance of an air-to-air missile
Ulu, Muharrem; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
Pursuit of a highly maneuverable aircraft by an air-to-air missile requires a solution to a challenging guidance and control problem. Precision is the most important need for these missiles. Appropriate guidance commands that are generated by the guidance method and an autopilot that can fulfil the agility needs of such a missile are the keys of minimizing the distance between the missile and the target and a successful interception. In this thesis, autopilot and guidance method design of an air-to-air miss...
Micro-Doppler analysis of rotary-wing air vehicles using pulsed-Doppler radar
Aybar, Bahadir; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2018-07-05)
In this paper, micro-Doppler signatures of rotary-wing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are investigated in order to classify these air targets, to distinguish them from birds and clutter and to specify their types using experimental data. Radar parameters required for extracting the micro-Doppler signatures of rotary-wing air targets with different blade lengths are studied. Experimental data taken from different targets using a medium Pulse Repetition Frequency (PRF) pulsed-Doppler surveillance radar is an...
