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 necessary for performance analysis, the analysis process is usually very time consuming and can be computationally expensive. In this paper, a response surface method, based on an experimental design, is generated using fundamental parameters that affect PoH. Engagement downrange and altitude, and seeker lock-on-range of the missile are selected as the fundamental inputs. Sampling points related to conventional uniform grid and response surfaces in the experimental design are analyzed. The number of Monte-Carlo simulations at each point is determined. The response surfaces are constructed, and their results are compared with uniform grid analysis results. It is shown that the response surface models represent the performance of the domain accurately alleviating the need for full gird analysis, thereby reducing the computational load substantially.

Response surface based performance analysis of an air-defense missile system
Günaydın, Kerem; Tekinalp, Ozan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
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 ...
Tracker-aware adaptive detection: An efficient closed-form solution for the Neyman-Pearson case
Aslan, Murat Samil; Saranlı, Afşar; Baykal, Buyurman (Elsevier BV, 2010-09-01)
A promising line of research for radar systems attempts to optimize the detector thresholds so as to maximize the overall performance of a radar detector-tracker pair. In the present work, we attempt to move in a direction to fulfill this promise by considering a particular dynamic optimization scheme which relies on a non-simulation performance prediction (NSPP) methodology for the probabilistic data association filter (PDAF), namely, the modified Riccati equation (MRE). By using a suitable functional appr...
Performance optimization of monopulse tracking radar
Şahin, Mehmet Alper; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
An analysis and simulation tool is developed for optimizing system parameters of the monopulse target tracking radar and observing effects of the system parameters on the performance of the system over different scenarios. A monopulse tracking radar is modeled for measuring the performance of the radar with given parameters, during the thesis studies. The radar model simulates the operation of a Class IA type monopulse automatic tracking radar, which uses a planar phased array. The interacting multiple mode...

Bıyıklı, Rabiya; Yavrucuk, İlkay; Tekin, Raziye; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2022-2)
The study proposes complete attitude and acceleration autopilots in all three channels of a highly agile air defense missile by utilizing a subcategory of nonlinear feedback linearization methods Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion (NDI). The autopilot design includes cross-coupling effects enabling bank-to-turn (BTT) maneuvers and a rarely touched topic of control in the boost phase with hybrid control which consists of both aerodynamic fin control and thrust vector control. This piece of work suggests solut...
Distributed Target Tracking with Propagation Delayed Measurements
Orguner, Umut (2009-07-09)
This paper presents a framework for making distributed target tracking under significant signal propagation delays between the target and the sensors. Each sensor considered makes estimation using its own measurements compensating for the involved signal propagation delay using a deterministic sampling based algorithm proposed previously. Since the individual sensor readings might not be enough to localize the target, the sensors have to share their estimates with each other at specific time instants and co...
