One of the techniques of enhancing survivability of strike aircrafts’ guidance systems is usage of low-altitude flight to weapon employment range on command from airborne warning and control system (AWACS). However, seldom command transfer induces sufficiently large guidance errors. Therefore, development of combined algorithm guidance is of special interest. Combined guidance’s feature is that between AWACS commands arrival the aircrafts performs homing guidance based on information from his onboard radar which is turned on for short periods of time. Conforming algorithms of command and homing guidance which provide all-aspect positioning for guidance on mobile ground target and adapting for strike aircraft’s onboard radar operating mode are suggested. Analyses confirming high efficiency of proposed algorithms are quoted.
