Missile Guidance and Control System Design Trends 740873

This paper describes selected guidance and control (G and C) concepts that are currently being considered for use on one or more advanced missile systems and, in the opinion of the author, represent trends in missile G and C system design. The guidance system concept to be described is the floated inertial measurement ball (FLIMBAL), and the control system concept is based on the single movable nozzle design configuration.
In addition, a description of selected design trends applicable to both guidance and control system hardware is presented which includes inertial instruments, electronics design, nuclear hardness considerations, and data transmission techniques.
