Abstract : A simplified guidance system for air-to-air missiles where the pilot adjusts his helmet sight to compensate for missile errors and this information is fed to a computer which computes correction data from error information, aircraft position information and missile position information, correction data is then sent via a radio link to the missile control system which changes the flight path accordingly.
