Study of Head-Pursuit Cooperative Guidance Law for Near-space Hypersonic Interceptor



Multiagent system, Time consistency theory, Extended state observers, Finite-time guidance law


In order to intercept hypersonic vehicles in near-space, a head-pursuit cooperative guidance law is proposed in this paper. Firstly, interceptors are regarded as multi-agents, and the communication relationship between them is represented by graph theory. Based on the time consistency theory of multi-agent system and sliding mode theory, a guidance law is designed along line-of-sight (LOS) to ensure the time cooperation of interceptors. Secondly, considering the requirement of the head-pursuit theory to the lead angle, a finite-time guidance law is designed perpendicular to LOS to ensure that each interceptor can complete head-pursuit interception. For the purpose of improving the intercept precision, extended state observers are used to estimate the system disturbances. The correctness of the guidance law is analyzed by Lyapunov stability theory. Finally, numerical simulations are presented and the results further verify the correctness of the guidance law.
