Tactical and Strategic Missile Guidance: Fourth Edition. Paul Zarchan. American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc., 1801 Alexander Bell Dr., Reston, VA 20191-4344. 743 pp. 2002. ISBN 1-56347-497-2. $109.95.
The fourth edition of this book has three new chapters on missile guidance. The first one shows how the guidance problem can be reformulated so a new guidance law can be derived that hits the target using minimum energy and also travels on a desired trajectory. The second new chapter explores the various filtering options that can be used to estimate the necessary states for using advanced guidance techniques. The last new chapter approaches the guidance problem from a completely different perspective than is often used by the space community. It shows how a predictive-corrector type method can be applied to a problem in which other more conventional guidance laws are also applicable.
