Abstract : This article is a part of research on terminal homing associated with space direct collision interceptors. The object is to establish a correct way of thinking about overall designs associated with space interceptor terminal homing, lowering development difficulties associated with various subsystems. After analyzing the basic contradictions associated with terminal homing system design and problems existing in past designs, this article puts forward new thinking associated with the solving of problems--that is, the idea of closely correcting deviations around larger lateral overloads and, in conjunction with that, realizing high precision homing and control, systematically designing terminal homing methods. In conjunction with this, from the angle of overall optimization, the reasonableness of opting for the use C larger lateral acceleration control corrections is verified. From this, the importance of new design ideas in research is clearly shown.
