This paper concerns on guidance law design by considering of the actuator effect. For achieving this goal, the proportional guidance (PN) method would be modified via the back-stepping approach such that the closed-loop stability is guaranteed in the presence of the actuator dynamic. Thus, it is interested to improve the guidance system performance (for example the transient response characteristic and miss-distance error) by the proposed guidance algorithm. Hence, the PN guidance law would be corrected such that the closed-loop system is asymptotically stabilized. The suggested algorithm is numerically simulated in a typical guidance problem. The simulation results verify the effectiveness of the redesigned guidance technique in comparison with the PN method.
