Abstract : The primary purpose of a missile guidance and control system is to influence the flight of the missile such that the terminal miss distance between the missile and the target is eliminated or reduced to an acceptable value. The purpose of this program was to determine the feasibility of a simple, low-cost, body-fixed semi-active laser seeker and reaction jet control system.
