Flight-path control of a missile using the Passive Normal Form
2005 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper addresses the problem of controlling the flight-path angle of a missile by means of a systematic use of passivity. A simple model of a generic missile's motion in a vertical plane based on wind tunnel data is used. A variant of backstepping is introduced, based on the novel concept of Passive Normal Form, by which explicit robustness margins are obtained. The method is applied to a variety of problems, including the use of dynamical extensions.
