In this paper, we consider guidance-law synthesis problems where the required conditions for interception or rendezvous are specified first, and a class of guidance laws is then synthesized to meet the given conditions. This approach is different from the existing analysis oriented methods where guidance laws are proposed first and then their performances are analyzed to check whether the interception or rendezvous conditions are satisfied. The synthesized guidance laws can be parametrized in terms of two free functions which provide additional design freedoms to satisify some strengthened interception or rendezvous conditions.
