Abstract : Consideration is given to the problem of selecting the instant of engine cutoff to minimize miss of a vehicle due to deviations of phase coordinates from the calculated values at the end of the active period of flight. It is assumed that these discrepancies are small and the equations of motion for target and vehicle are linearized with respect to these deviations.
