Both miss distance and impact angle under the IGC law achieve the satisfactory performance.
From [21], if the final miss distance is less than 0.25 m, the hit-to-kill interception also can be satisfied.
From the final miss distance of the three guidance laws, it can be seen that the final miss distance of three guidance laws is distributed within 0.5~1 m.
The continued research in this field has allowed T&E practitioners to expand their analysis and evaluation to include multiple responses such as time to acquire a target and miss distance. Not discussed in this article are Bayesian methods that incorporate a priori information and are useful in rolling up and including developmental test data and/or subject matter expert opinions.
Average miss distance for the 30 projectiles was 1.6 meters.
As shown in Table 3, when the time constant of the missile autopilot varies, the corresponding miss distance remains small and flight time almost the same as each other, which shows the robustness of the proposed guidance law.
Figure 7 plots the estimated target number against the ground truth and the OSPA multi-target miss distance at each time instant.
After talking to my WSO, and based on the sight picture and track-crossing rate after the pass, we estimated our miss distance to be about 20 feet with wing overlap (the P-3 crew later estimated 30 feet).
