Dynamics of a controlled anti-aircraft missile launcher mounted on a moveable base
In the work, dynamics of a controlled anti-aircraft missile launcher mounted on a moveable base (wheeled vehicle) is analysed. Pre-programmed controls were used for basic motion of the launcher during target interception, and stabilizing controls were applied to counteract disturbances resulting from the operation of the anti-aircraft system. This type of control allows setting the longitudinal axis of the missile with respect to the target line of sight irrespective of the carrier vehicle motion. The system vibrations are due to road-induced excitations and they act directly on the vehicle, the missile launch and the control of launcher basic motion. Selected results of computer simulation were presented graphically.
