In this paper, a new approach to design the 3-dimensional missile guidance law, based on partial stabilization, is presented. The approach is based on the classification of the state variables within the guidance system dynamics with respect to their required stabilization properties. The resulting guidance law enables the missile to intercept highly maneuvering targets within a finite interception time. Effectiveness of the proposed guidance law is demonstrated through analysis and simulations.
