This isn't about general programming so i don't know how much attention thgis Q will receive. here is my problem

I have started work on a project for my final year and have come to a sticking point...a major one

My rpoject is a missile guidance and control system based on a real time core..the latter is now nearly finished but i have no clue about guidance systems theory.

does anyone know of any good books,ec where i might find this info?

i made a mistake by assuming i could figure this out with my limited knowledge of physics, etc..i was wrong..hehe

Thankyou

I think you might want to look into 3D game programming and the physics being used in those applications.

http://www.gamedev.net provides great information about math & physics beings used.

Book-idea??:

I don't think there are many books around about missile guidance :-/

You might take a look at the following web sites,  The first has some information on Rocket Guidence using microchip PIC's   The second has an actual IR tracker which also is controlled by PIC.

This might not be your answer, but it is awfully cool,  Check them out.

I once wrote a Kalman filter for tracking missile trajectories when working in aerospace -- but it had nothing to do with controlling the missile itself...

The basic idea was that you looked inside a cubical space for the missile, and if not there, expanded the space and looked again until found, then you can tighten up the cube again... it's an iterative predictor-corrector type of thing, not too complicated, really...

Perhaps you might look into that as a starting point...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
