Course objective : This graduate level course aims a balanced introduction to the field of guidance, navigation and control of guided weapon systems. Every week a single topic will be discussed and every week a homework will be assigned. Most homeworks will involve simulation work related to the topics discussed during the lectures. Grading will be based on weekly homeworks and a final exam.
Learning outcomes : A student completing the course successfully will Formulate navigation, guidance and flight control problems in terms of mathematical models Analyse the functioning and interrelations of subsytems in a guided system Develope the technical architecture of guidance and control systems in a preliminary design level Develope basic simulation and analysis tools for the assesment of a given guidance and control system Apply simulation tools for the analysis of guidance and control systems
Course content : Introduction to Guided Missile Systems Guidance of Tactical Missiles Guidance of Ballistic Missiles Automatic Flight Control Systems Inertial and Radio Navigation
