Abstract:

A target seeker simulator has been successfully developed that, when installed in an ANBQM-34A drone, simulates an active homing cruise missile. In order to simulate realistically a cruise missile illuminating and homing on a target, it was necessary to keep the seeker antenna pointed at the target regardless of the drone movement. Pointing of the seeker antenna is accomplished on the basis of signals received from an associated beacon at the target site. Flight tests conducted at the White Sands Missile Range WSMR in September 1975 produced satisfactory operational performance by the target seeker simulator. Author
