Abstract:

APPRECIABLE DIFF RENCE EXISTS IN THE ART OF STABILITY AND CONTROL AS PRACTICED IN IRCR FT MIS ILE D SIGN. B sic factors whic contribute o this iff renc are co veyed The discussion is divided into 3 major categories which de l, re p ctiv ly i is ile co figurations in contra istinction to aircraft configurations, the role of natural coordinates as they relate to stability and control concep s e iffere positions of aircraf a d missiles with respect to the technological state-of-the-art. It is perceived that while alleviating f c or uc as ystem noncriticali y d utopilots tend to r uce the precision required in issile design, these are at least offset by the demands for extensions relative to t or ic l and empirical state of e art an for the integra io of the esign within diverse over-all objectives.
