Quaternion-based 3D Attitude Tracking Algorithm Using Virtual Roll Angle for Missile Systems

Suwon Lee

Abstract

In this paper, a new type of three-dimensional attitude tracking algorithm for missiles is derived. A virtual roll angleis adopted to obtain additional control availability. The proposed attitude tracking algorithm is analyzed in a four-dimensional quaternion space. Based on the proposed algorithm, the attitude tracking algorithm can be designed more efficiently than in the existing control systems. A nonlinear attitude tracking algorithm is designed for the proposed control system, and an adaptation law for uncertainty is also designed. It is verified through numerical simulations that the proposed control system and tracking algorithm can successfully perform attitude tracking.

Keywords Adaptive control, attitude control, missiles, nonlinear control, quaternion.
