Paper Abstract

A comprehensive hardware-in-the-loop simulation has been developed, operational in real-time, to perform guidance and control system design verification and autopilot and detector optimization for a laser semiactive terminal homing weapon system. Emphasis was placed on the development of time-critical aspects of the simulation including analog-digital computer partitioning, aerodynamic moment updating, and target-vehicle geometry modeling. Validity of the simulation was demonstrated by comparing results obtained from the all digital 6-DOF and hybrid analog-digital simulations. The simulation was proven an invaluable evaluation and optimization tool in efforts to enhance weapon system performance.
