Title Impact Point Prediction for Thrusting Projectiles in the Presence of Wind.
Publication Date Apr 2012
Media Count 18p
Personal Author D. Hardiman P. Willett T. Yuan Y. Bar-Shalom
Abstract In estimating the state of thrusting/ballistic endoatmospheric projectiles for the end purpose of impact point prediction (IPP), the total observation time, the wind effect and the sensor accuracy significantly affect the IPP performance. First the tracker accounting for the wind effect is presented. Following this, based on the multiple interacting multiple model (MIMM) estimator developed recently, a sensitivity study of the IPP performance with respect to the total observation time, the wind (strength and direction) and the sensor accuracy is presented.
