A planar linearized interception problem of a maneuverable target is considered. A novel continuous interception strategy, based on the super-twisting second-order sliding mode control, is constructed. The sufficient conditions guaranteeing that this strategy has the maximal capture zone are established. Simulation results demonstrate that the control expenditure of the new strategy is reduced without deteriorating the homing performance in comparison with a bang-bang strategy.
