Abstract : This book is intended for people interested in problems of rocket and missile guidance. The principal types of gyro-devices for guiding modern ballistic rockets are discussed. Data is presented on structural plans of guidance systems, their specific parts, and their functions. Much attention has been paid to physical principles of operating gyro-devices, factors affecting their accuracy, and hydrostabilizers as the principal master-measuring devices of modern rockets. The book is based on open Soviet and Western materials. (Author)
