Parallel Navigation

WithRafael T. Yanushevsky

According to the parallel navigation (the “constant bearing”) rule, the LOS direction relative to the inertial coordinate system is kept constant, i.e., during guidance the LOS remains parallel to the initial LOS. Using (1.10) and (1.11), this rule can be presented in the form: λ ˙ ( t ) = λ ˙ 1 ( t ) i + λ ˙ 2 ( t ) j + λ ˙ 3 ( t ) k = 0
