This paper proposes a novel composite dual-control by combing the integral sliding mode control (ISMC) method based on the finite time convergence theory with extended state observer (ESO) for a tracking problem of a missile with tail fins and reactionjet control system (RCS). First, the ISMC method based on finite time convergence is utilized to design the control law of tail fins and the pulse control of RCS for the dual-control system, ensuring the system with rapid response and high accuracy of tracking. Then, ESO is employed for the estimation of aerodynamic disturbances influenced by the airflow of thruster jets. With the characteristic of high accuracy estimation of ESO, the chattering free tracking performance of the attack angle command and the robustness of the control law are achieved. Meanwhile, the stability of the dual-control system is analyzed based on finite time convergence stability theorem and Lyapunov’s theorem. Finally, numerical simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed design.
