Capturability of Combined Augmented Proportional Navigation against a Pull-Up Maneuvering Target

Nugroho, Larasmoyo

This article paper proposes a variation of the augmented proportional navigation law, called combined augmented proportional navigation which is studied to intercept a non-maneuvering target. This law is constructed from two predecessor laws, augmented proportional navigation (APN) known for its superiority performance against such target and coupled with combined proportional navigation (CPN) which has capability to compute head angle more than 90 degrees by solving the appearance of singularity in navigation ratio. CAPN guidance law is defined by deriving the effective navigation ratio from the PN-based guidance law and the rate of change of target-pursuer range. The simulations show the capability of CAPN guidance law applied to a missile engaging head-to-head scenarios which the target use a pull-up maneuver. It is contrasted with PPN and TPN classical guidance law, to compare performance in terms of miss distance. CAPN guidance law is regarded as better than those of other classical PN-based guidance laws.


Random Matrix Based Extended Target Tracking with Orientation: A New Model and Inference
Tuncer, Barkın; Özkan, Emre (2021-02-01)
In this study, we propose a novel extended target tracking algorithm which is capable of representing the extent of dynamic objects as an ellipsoid with a time-varying orientation angle. A diagonal positive semi-definite matrix is defined to model objects' extent within the random matrix framework where the diagonal elements have inverse-Gamma priors. The resulting measurement equation is non-linear in the state variables, and it is not possible to find a closed-form analytical expression for the true poste...
Joint Utilization of Appearance and Geometry for Determining Correspondences
Soysal, Medeni; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Karadeniz, Talha (2009-09-16)
A novel approach, which is based on combining the competence of interest point detectors to capture primitives and the capability of geometric constraints to discriminate between spatial configurations of these primitives is presented. In the proposed approach, the geometric constraints are enforced by means of barycentric coordinates, a mathematical tool that has been utilized in the relevant literature as a neighborhood constraint. In the context of our research, however, these coordinates are utilized as...
Biased proportional navigation guidance for impact angle control with extension to three-dimensional engagements /
Erer, Koray Savaş; Özgören, Mustafa Kemal; Merttopçuoğlu, Osman; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2015)
This work shows that the impact angle can be controlled by means of bias addition to pure proportional navigation guidance commands. After obtaining the closed-form solution of the nonlinear differential equations governing the engagement kinematics between a pursuer and a stationary target, it is shown that the proposed strategy corresponds to the optimal solution in the linear domain. Three alternative guidance laws that do not require the time to go are proposed. The first law constitutes a two-phased ap...

Kartal, Seda Karadeniz; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Ege, Emre (2015-05-19)
In this study, a nonlinear mathematical model for an unmanned underwater survey vehicle is obtained. The inertial navigation system and vision-based measurement systems are modelled. The magnetic compass, depth sensor and pitot tube are used in order to support vehicle's attitude, velocity and depth information. The state errors are estimated with error state estimation algorithm from the noisy measurement data. The navigational data of the vehicle can be obtained accurately using the extended Kalman filter...

In this thesis, optical system design, integration and testing of a compact LIDAR system with 270 degree field-of-view that based on time of flight principle is developed by Rekrom Optoelectronics. This system can identify objects and measure distances up to 100 m away. LIDAR has become a much needed and used technology in various fields. The most important of these areas are robotic systems, autonomous vehicles and unmanned aerial, land and sea platforms navigation and environmental awareness. The main r...
