Proportional navigation is one of the most widely used methods in guiding flying objects. This method requires the rotation rate of the line between the interceptor and the target to calculate the guidance command. For a variety of reasons, including cost savings, simple sensors are used to measure tracking information, including line of sight angle. Therefore, some non-measurable information such as the angular velocity of the line of sight must be estimated using mathematical equations. Due to the noise and other problems, the use of derivatives is not desirable in this situation. Therefore, in this paper, an extended nonlinear observer is used to estimate the angular velocity of the line. Due to the nonlinear dynamics of the intercepting of flying objects, a nonlinear type of observer has been selected. By performing a computer simulation, the correct operation of the proposed observer is shown.
