The guidance technique presented in this study originates from the idea that it will be possible to impose the impact time against a moving target if the differential equation governing the behavior of the range can be made to have an analytical solution as a function of time. One direct way to do this involves two things, such as keeping the relative speed constant, and dictating a relative heading error profile that is composed of straight-line segments. The first item implies the application of the acceleration vector in a direction perpendicular to the relative velocity vector, while the second item, which is the key idea, gives rise to a multi-phased guidance structure).
