31 August 1993 Modular all-digital closed-loop simulation for analysis and simulation of strategic interceptors

Simulation methods offer a time- and cost-effective approach to the evaluation and testing of guided missiles. These include hardware-in-the-loop as well as all-digital simulations which provide information about how a particular existing or proposed missile system might perform in hypothetical situations which may not be practically duplicated in reality. This paper describes an all-digital simulation developed using available components. The paper describes the functional flow of the simulation, and identifies the information which is passed between the independent modules. Several applications are described, and results such as intercept miss distances, line-of-sight pointing error statistics, and sensitivity to certain system parameters are demonstrated.
