Abstract : This article puts forward one type of guidance option related to the maneuver programing of reentering flight vehicles. The option in question makes use of a radiation sensing system, precisely determining the location of the starting point of the reentering flight vehicle. Use is also made of strap-on type inertial guidance systems to control the impact points of flight vehicles. Maneuvering flight is an important direction in the development of the technology of strategic flight vehicles. It is possible to use it in sudden defense, adding programing, raising precision, and recovery. Maneuvering flight tests are capable of giving complete checks in all such areas as flight vehicle propulsion systems, materials structure, heat resistance systems, stability, guidance circuits, and attitude control systems. It is capable of carrying out experiments on different technological levels. Options which are relatively simple and easy to carry out are to make the reentering flight vehicle, within the longitudinal plane, fly maneuvers according to preset programs. Going through precise inertial guidance or celestial-inertial guidance systems, guidance is carried out on the flight vehicle in the main power stage, with controls and corrections to the free section flight orbital plane, such that the trajectory is capable of entering into the predicted reentry corridor. As far as initial flight tests are concerned, it is possible to make use of inertial guidance systems which already exist, relaxing the requirements for launch plane controls and lateral impact point deviations.
