Guest Lecture Announcement: Games in Aerospace – Homing Missile Guidance
Joseph Z. Ben-Asher is professor in the department of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion–Israel Institute of Technology, Israel. He will give a lecture on “Games in Aerospace: Homing Missile Guidance” on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 from 11:00-12:00, MW 3618. The short description of the lecture is as follows:
The development of a homing missile guidance law against an intelligent adversary requires the solution to a differential game. First, we formulate a simple game to demonstrate the main ideas. Then we will formulate the deterministic homing guidance problem as a linear dynamic system with an indefinite quadratic performance criterion (LQ). This formulation allows the navigation ratio to be greater than three, which is obtained by the one sided linear-quadratic regulator and appears to be more realistic. However, this formulation does not allow for saturation in the actuators. A deterministic game allowing saturation is formulated and shown to be superior to the LQ guidance law, even though there is no control penalty. To improve the performance of the quadratic differential game solution in the presence of saturation, trajectory shaping feature is added.

TUM students have the opportunity to participate in this year’s DLR Summer School on Flight Testing, taking place September 18. – 22. 2017 in Braunschweig. Participation will be recognized as “Praktikum Flugversuchstechnik” (Flight Testing Lab) by TUM’s Institute of Flight System Dynamics.
Students will conduct flight tests with DLR Cessna 208B Grand Caravan and with TU Braunschweig Do 128-6 equipped with relevant sensors and online data visualization. Test pilots will fly the airplane. The technical content of the summer school will be similar to TUM FSD’s Flight Testing Lab.
The participation fees and travel expenses will be reimbursed by TUM FSD and DLR.
Application is open until August 6th 2017 (extended registration period!). Please contact Lukas Höhndorf with a list of relevant exams you have passed.
For further questions, contact Lukas Höhndorf.
