This proposal continues on the successful Integrated Guidance and Control techniques developed through the Phase I effort. A new VIGC formulation has been shown to yield good preliminary results. Research during Phase II will develop IGC algorithms with an optimal approach, with an inner loop-outer loop appraoach and and a heading error approach. IST-Rolla also will develop nonlinear filters to make the simulations more realistic for high-speed target interceptor scenarios. The combinations of the optimal theta-D control and cost based and theta-D filter are expected to yield near zero miss distances.
