Abstract:

Reticle runout is defined as the condition where the reticle of a Sidewinder-type seeker, as projected into object space, does not rotate about the center of its pattern. The sources of runout are considered for a si ple lens-reticle system and then specifically considered for the Mk 29 Sidewinder 1C missile optical system. It is s own that reticle runout can be eli inated in all imperfectly centered systems by appropriate rebalancing of the supporting gyroscope. Author
