dc.description.abstract

A reduced order model describing the energy and heading angle dynamics of a scramjet missile is developed using a singular perturbation technique. The cruise analysis is briefly reviewed to determine the conditions at which the missile will cruise most efficiently. The turn and climb performance of the missile over the conditions of interest is then examined and a family of extremal trajectories is constructed which asymptotically approach the cruise at an intermediate altitude.
