Paper Abstract

This paper deals with models of ballistic target (BT) motion during the boost phase for target tracking. Different options to improve the accuracy of modeling are discussed and several enhanced models are proposed. They include simple kinematic models of the so-called gravity turn (GT) target motion and more sophisticated models, accounting for the BT flight dynamics during boost, as well. Tracking simulations are presented.
