A new approach to maneuvering target tracking using the Sliding Mode Observer theory, in the specific context of homing missile guidance, is developed. This scheme requires a priori information about the target acceleration bounds alone, and there is no need for a dynamic model to represent the target maneuver dynamics. The proposed estimator is as simple to implement as the conventional Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) itself. The simulation results, in the presence of realistic noise sources, demonstrate the superiority of the proposed estimation scheme over the EKF.
