Abstract:

Intercept control is the process of guiding an interceptor toward a target. This process requires the transmission of appropriate altitude, speed and heading commands to the interceptor in proper sequence. A procedure for determining interceptor commands in computer controlled systems was developed approximately two decades ago. This procedure with minor variations is currently being used in operational systems throughout the world.
