Abstract : An interceptor missile has a single gimbal system mounted in its interior. The single gimbal system positions a directional warhead carried by the missile to provide the maximum destructive effect upon detonation to an air supported target. This invention generally relates to a fragmentation warhead fuze system for medium range interceptor missiles and rockets which are intended for deployment against air supported targets, and more particularly to an improved non-nuclear warhead fuze seeker system for such missiles and rockets.
