Abstract : This publication is a training guide explaining the fundamentals and foundations of the long range ballistic missile weapon systems launched from moving bases such as submarine or aircraft. Since the land based missiles are essentially no different from the missiles launched from the moving bases except that the bases are fixed on the earth (without rotational and linear motions), the theory and analyses explained in this training guide would be equally applicable to all three classes of missiles land based, sea/undersea based, or airborne missiles, which use inertial navigation system. This publication is written mainly for the training of new technical members using only introductory physics and calculus. Nonetheless, it manages to maintain the robustness of theory and the rigor of mathematical derivation. For this reason, it is recommended to veteran technical members who might find a segment or two that would shed a new light on old subjects.
