Aiming at the impact-angle-control guidance with field-of-view constraint in the three-dimensional space, a novel analytical prescribed performance guidance law is proposed. First, a new prescribed performance function is designed in the relative range domain, and the common drawbacks of most existing prescribed performance functions, such as large overshoot, time dependency, and infinite-time convergence, are avoided. Second, the three-dimensional biased pure proportional navigation guidance frame is selected. The biased term is derived based on the prescribed performance control theory and the optimal error dynamic method, for realizing the terminal impact-angle constraint. After that, the analytical solution of missile lead angle is derived under some linearization approximations, and two methods are respectively developed for obtaining the range of the guidance gain and updating its value to guarantee the satisfaction of the field-of-view constraint during the guidance process. Moreover, for the proposed guidance law and methods, the tracking error could be ensured to remain in the predefined performance boundaries. Finally, numerical simulations are conducted to verify the effectiveness of the new theoretical findings.
