A novel sliding mode-based impact time and angle guidance law for engaging a modern warfare ship is presented in this paper. In order to satisfy the impact time and angle constraints, a line-of-sight rate shaping process is introduced. This shaping process results in a tuning parameter that can be used to create a line-of-sight rate profile to satisfy the final time and heading angle requirements and to yield acceptable normal acceleration values. In order to track the desired line-of-sight rate profile in the presence of uncertainties, a novel robust second-order sliding mode control law is developed using a backstepping concept. Due to the robustness of the control law, it can be applied to many realistic engagement scenarios which include uncertainties such as target motion. Numerical simulations with different warship engagements are presented to illustrate the potential of the developed method.
