  4. Abstract:
  5. Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to propose a supervisory command-to-line-of-sight guidance law with lead angle which keeps the missile flight within the tracking beam. Design/methodology/approach - A nonlinear supervisory controller is designed and coupled with the main sliding mode controller in the form of an additional control signal. The supervisory control signal is activated when the beam angle constraint goes to be violated. Initially a supervisory controller is designed using nonlinear control theory. Subsequently the main tracking controller is designed using sliding mode approach which forces the missile to fly along the desired line-of-sight. The stability of the supervisory controller coupled with the main controller is proved in the Lyapunov sense. Findings - There exists a major drawback with the lead angle method of guidance, which is a high probability of flying out of the beam. The proposed supervisory controller has successfully overcome this deficiency. Thus, a better performance has been achieved. Practical implications - The proposed guidance scheme can be applied to tactical surface to air missiles. Additionally the idea of supervisory controller can be applied to any similar control problem where there are some constrains over the states of the system. Originality/value - The idea of supervisory controller has not been applied to the problem of command-to-line-of-sight guidance law. This paper utilizes and extends the idea of supervisory controller design to cases when a special state is to be supervised while considering the effect of external disturbances
