Height of Burst (HOB) sensor is one of the critical parts in guided missiles. While seekers control the guiding scheme of the missile, proximity sensors set the trigger for increased effectiveness of the warhead. For the well-developed guided missiles of Roketsan, a novel proximity sensor is developed. The design of the sensor is for multi-purpose use. In this presentation, the application of the sensor is explained for operation as a HOB sensor in the range of 3m-50m with ± 1m accuracy. Measurement results are also presented. The same sensor is currently being developed for proximity sensor for missile defence.

A method for estimating target velocity and range with passive seeker data
Babaoğlu, Buğra Can; Kutay, Ali Türker; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
In basic guidance applications, the line-of-sight (LOS) and line-of-sight rate information, which can be provided using a passive seeker, are enough to steer the missile to the target. However, if one wants to augment the guidance algorithm, further information regarding the engagement and/or target is needed. Unlike passive seekers, active and semi-active seekers may provide such information. Nevertheless, if the missile is equipped with a passive seeker, those parameters need to be estimated. Various meth...
The stabilization of a two axes gimbal of a roll stabilized missile
Hastürk, Özgür; Erkmen, Aydan Müşerref; Department of Educational Sciences (2011)
Nowadays, high portion of tactical missiles use gimbaled seeker. For accurate target tracking, the platform where the gimbal is mounted must be stabilized with respect to the motion of the missile body. Line of sight stabilization is critical for fast and precise tracking and alignment. Although, conventional PID framework solves many stabilization problems, it is reported that many PID feedback loops are poorly tuned. In this thesis, recently introduced robot control method, proxy based sliding mode contro...
Dynamic modeling and control of a hybrid fin actuation system for an air-to-air missile
Çelik, Tayfun; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
Air-to-air missiles require high maneuverability. In order to obtain high maneuverability, hybrid fin actuation systems are used. In this study, a hybrid fin actuation system which is composed of aerodynamic control surfaces and thrust vector control is designed. Both aerodynamic and thrust vector control types are explained and the most suitable pair is determined for air-to-air missile. Then, the designed system is physically constructed and system identification procedure is performed. After that three d...
A Control moment gyroscope based on rotational vibrations, dynamic model and experimentation
Arberkli, Ferhat; Azgın, Kıvanç; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2018)
Satellite attitude determination and control system is one of the main subsystems of a spacecraft. Within this domain, there are several types of actuators; such as reaction wheels, control moment gyroscopes (CMG), propulsion systems and magnetic torque rods. All of them are common and currently being used on modern satellites and space stations depending on the application. Conventional reaction wheel and CMG operation are based on the continuous rotation of their rotor mass to exchange angular momentum be...
Design of a grid fin aerodynamic control device for transonic flight regime
Dikbaş, Erdem; Sert, Cüneyt; Baran, Özgür Uğraş; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2015)
Grid fins is unconventional control devices and they are used for aerodynamic control of various types of missiles. Low hinge moment requirement and superior packaging possibilities make grid fins attractive when compared to conventional planar fins. However, design of grid fins is more involved when transonic flight regime is considered. The reason for this is high drag force encountered by the grid fin. The purpose of the thesis is to overcome this drawback and to define a proper design methodology for tr...
