The paper presents the dynamics and the method of steering such a missile. Correctness of the developed mathematical model was confirmed by digital simulation conducted for a Maverick missile equipped with a gyroscope being an executive element of the system scanning the earth s surface and following the detected target. Both the dynamics of the gyroscope and the missile during the process of scanning and following the detected target were subject to digital analysis. The results were presented in a graphic form. Key words: self-guiding, dynamics and steering, steered gyroscope, missile 1. Introduction In the case of automatic steering of self-guided missiles, kinematic equations of spins were related to missile equations of dynamics, using the Boltzmann- Hamel equations(ładyżyńska-kozdraś et al., 2008), which were developed in a relative frame of reference Oxyz, rigidly connected with the missile(żyluk, 2009). Atthemomentofdetectingthetarget,itwasassumehatthemissile automatically passes from the flight on the programmed trajectory to trackingflightofthetargetaccordingtotheassumedalgorithm,inthiscase

2 474 E. Ładyżyńska-Kozdraś, Z. Koruba the method of proportional navigation. Controlling the motion of the missile is carried out by the deflection of control surfaces, i.e. direction steer and heightsteerattheanglesδ V andδ H respectively.thecontrollawsconstitute kinematic relations of deviations of set and realised flight parameters, stabilising the movement of the missile in channels of inclination and deflection. Therealisationofthedesiredflightpathofthemissileiscarriedoutbythe autopilot, which generates control signals based on the compounds derived for the executive system of steering. In the final section of navigation, various types of disturbances may affect the missile, such as wind or shock waves from shells exploding nearby. Therefore, additional stabilisation is necessary, in this case performed by the gyroscope. When searching for a ground target, the gyroscope axis, facing down, strictly outlines defined lines on the earth s surface with its extension. Theopticsystempositionedintheaxisofthegyroscope,withaspecificangle ofview,canthusfinhelightorinfraredsignalemittedbyamovingobject. Therefore, kinematic parameters of reciprocal movement of the missile head andgyroscopeaxisshouldbeselecteodetectthetargetatthehighestprobability possible. After locating the target(receiving the signal by the infrared detector), the gyroscope goes into the tracking mode, i.e. from this point its axis takes a specific position in space, being directed onto the target. 2. The general equations of missile dynamics Dynamic equations of missile motion in flight were derived in quasi-coordinates ϕ,θ,ψandquasi-velocitiesu,v,w,p,q,r(fig.1)usingtheboltzmann- Hamel equations true for mechanical systems in the system associated with the object. The following correlation expresses them in a general form d T T + ω µ π µ k k r=1α=1 γµα r T ω α =Q µ (2.1) ω r where: α,µ,r=1,2,...,k, k numberofdegreesoffreedom, ω µ quasi- -velocities, T kineticenergyexpressedinquasi-velocities, π µ quasi- -coordinates, Q µ generalisedforces, γ r αµ three-indexboltzmannfactors, expressed by the following correlation γ r αµ = k δ=1λ=1 k ( arδ q λ a rλ q δ ) b δµ b λα (2.2)

Assumed reference system and parameters of the missile in the course of guidance Relations between quasi-velocities and generalised velocities are k k ω δ = a δα q α q δ = b δµ ω µ (2.3) α=1 µ 1 where: q δ generalised velocities, q k generalised coordinates, a δα = =a δα (q 1,q 2,...,q k )and b δα =b δα (q 1,q 2,...,q k ) coordinatesbeingfunctions of generalised coordinates, while the following matrix correlation exists: [a δµ ]=[b δµ ] 1. The Boltzmann-Hamel equations, after calculating the values of Boltzmann factors and indicating kinetic energy in quasi-velocities, a system of ordinary differential equations of the second order was received which describes the behaviour of the missile on the track during guidance. In the frame of reference associated with the moving object Oxyz, they have the following form M V+KMV=Q (2.4) where:mistheinertiamatrix,k kinematicrelationsmatrix,v velocity vector and

Obtained results and final conclusions The tested model of navigation and the steering of the self-guiding missile describes the fully autonomous motion of the Maverick combat vessel, which is to directly attack and destroy a ground target after being detected and identified. Figures 5-8 show selected results of digital simulation of the dynamics of the missile during self-guidance on a detected ground target. It was assumed that the missile was launched from an aircraft-carrier moving at a speed of 200m/sataheightof400m.Thetargetwasmovingalonganarcofacircleat the speed of 10m/s. The parameters of the steered gyroscope were as follows J gk = kgm 2 J go = kgm 2 n g =600 rad s while the coefficients of its regulator had the values k b = Nm rad k c =2.986 Nm rad η b =η c =0.01 Nms rad h g = Nms rad The coefficients of proportional navigation and parameters of the regulator of PR autopilot were as follows a γ =3.5 a χ =3.5 k m =2.703 Nm rad k n = Nm h m =9.887 Nms rad rad Fig. 5.

12 484 E. Ładyżyńska-Kozdraś, Z. Koruba With the parameters selected as in the above, the target was destroyed in 6softheflight. It should be emphasised that the gyroscope scanning and tracking layout proposed in this paper improves the stability of the system of missile selfguidance and increases resistance to vibrations born from the board of the missile itself.
