Paper Abstract

A new laser beam rider guidance system was developed for hypervelocity missile. The technique is based on an off-axis laser beam that is pointing at a constant offset of the target. The missile's sensors get the guiding information by detecting the scattering of the beam created by the particles present in the atmosphere. In order to evaluate the performances of the technique, an hardware in the loop facility was implemented. Three degrees of freedom duplicating the vertical, lateral and spin axes of the missile are represented and the 6 DOFs are modeled. The features of the guidance technique as well as the details of the hardware in the loop facilities are presented.
