Paper Abstract

The missile map-matching problem for guidance updating or target homing is shown in Figure 1. The problem as defined here consists of locating the position of a sensor image relative to a reference map which is stored onboard the vehicle's computer. Once the match location is found the relative location between the two map centers can be used to update the vehicle's navigational position. The two important performance considerations are the avoidance of false fixes as measured by their frequency of occurrence and the accuracy with which the position fix can be made.
