Abstract : Russia launched two multistage ballistic missiles in 1960. The deviation of the landing point with respect to trajectory range was only one sixth-thousandth and the deviation of speed of flight was three-one-hundred-thousandths, which indicated that a condition of high perfection had been reached in rocket control systems. The operating principles of rocket control systems were introduced. The function of rocket control systems was explained. A block diagram and three major components of the automatic stabilizer were discussed. These components are: position fixing element; amplification/conversion device and steering mechanism. Finally, speed measurement mechanisms were brought up since target accuracy is greatly influenced by errors in speed. What the author introduced was simply a concept of control system equipment.
