Optimal stopping and hard terminal constraints applied to a missile guidance problem

Ford, Jason J. & Dower, Peter M. (2004) Optimal stopping and hard terminal constraints applied to a missile guidance problem. In 2004 Asian Control Conference, July 2004, Melbourne.

Abstract

This paper describes two new types of deterministic optimal stopping control problems: optimal stopping control with hard terminal constraints only and optimal stopping control with both minimum control effort And hard termind constraints. Both problems are initially formulated in continuous-time (a discretetime formulation is given towards the end of the paper) and soIutions given via dynamic programming. A numeric solution to the continuous-time dynamic programming equations is then briefly discussed. The optimal stopping with terminal constraints problem in continuous-time is a natural description of a particular type of missile guidance problem. This missile guidance appiication is introduced and the presented solutions used in missile engagements against targets.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
