The missile interceptors integrated guidance and control technology for achieving the hit-to-kill accuracy against targets performing evasive maneuvers including spiraling motion is developed on the basis of high (second) order sliding mode control (HOSM). The integration of guidance and flight control systems is achieved in a two-loop guidance and flight control system designed in the combined state space of engagement kinematics and vehicle dynamics. The designed guidance-control system performance is verified via computer simulations using miniature hypervelocity kinetic energy endo-atmospheric interceptor planar model.
