Abstract:

The report describes a simplified simulation of the control of a ballistic rocket in a horizontal plane. The purpose of the simulation was to investigate the effect of basic system parameters such as gain and limited corrective thrust on the reduction of dispersion caused by thrust malalignment. The parameters of the rocket model were of the early Littlejohn class, and the rocket was considered not to roll. The control system gain and corrective thrust parameters were based upon estimates of the performance of fluid control devices and methods. Author
