Abstract [en]

The problem of finding an optimal aircraft trajectory for long-distance flights in three dimensions subject to radar detection constraints is considered. A general point-mass model previously developed is not suitable because the time discretization needs to be very fine to resolve the rigid-body dynamics resulting in very large optimization problems. Different reduced mathematical models are derived and compared to the more general performance model. Finally, a long-range mission involving two subsonic jet trainers approaching a radar target is numerically simulated. The results indicate that the time a hostile radar has an approaching aircraft under surveillance can be greatly reduced by using the proposed methodology.
