Prediction-based guidance algorithm for high-lift reentry vehicles
【摘要】：In this work, we propose a pseudo four-degrees-of-freedom (DOF) prediction based guidance algo- rithm specifically for high-lift reentry vehicles. The algorithm is composed mainly of three parts. First, at the beginning of each guidance cycle, the 4-DOF predictor is called upon to predict the final downrange, crossrange, and heading errors. Then, the magnitude of the bank angle is determined from the downrange error, using the proportional-integral (PI) control method. Finally, two bank angle reversal time points are determined to minimize the crossrange and heading errors. Compared with traditional predictor-corrector guidance, the algorithm proposed does not require iterative procedures which significantly decreases the computational burden for the on-board computer and makes the implementation practical. Simulation results for dispersion tests demonstrated that our algorithm is computationally efficient and robust against uncertainties and disturbances.
