Abstract : This effort involved the analysis, design, and fabrication of a Dynamic Lead Guidance (DLG) interface package for use in the Terminal Homing Flight Test Vehicle (THFTV). The Strapdown Laser Seeker Navigation Unit, Mod 1 has been designed to interface mechanically and electrically with the THFTV autopilot and a linear laser seeker input. While the unit was fabricated for a laboratory 'hardware-in-the-loop' simulation, all components used have the potential for incorporation into a flight qualified unit.
