IN MANY advanced guidance applications, it is required to intercept the target from a particular direction: that is, to achieve a certain impact angle [1–3]. Closed-form solutions for energyoptimal impact-angle-constrained guidance laws have been proposed for a stationary target by Ryoo et al. [4], who used the linear quadratic regulator technique after linearizing the engagement kinematics. The guidance law proposed by them captures all impact angles from any initial launch angle in a planar engagement scenario. Lu et al. [5] solved the problem of guiding a hypersonic gliding vehicle in its terminal phase to a stationary target using adaptive proportional navigation guidance. Ohlmeyer and Phillips [6] extended the idea of explicit guidance (proposed by Cherry [7]) to include a terminal impact angle constraint. However, the simulations by Ohlmeyer and Phillips [6] are carried out only for a vertical impact against a stationary target, and the impact angle errors encountered are sensitive to the launch altitude.
