Abstract : Guided missiles involve the use of a conventional deviated pursuit course like proportional navigation algorithm and its variants, which is optimal when the speed advantage of the guided missile is very high and the target maneouvering is minimal. Against the present-day aircraft, which employs fly-by-wire technology for high maneouverability and high speed, missiles need to have a much higher speed advantage or to use a combination of artificial intelligence and modern control algorithms. Results of simulation of pursuit and evasion with an autonomous intelligent agent incorporated in the control loop are presented.
