Abstract:

A kinematic study of partial navigation courses for a guided missile attacking a constant velocity target, is made in this report. A method of estimating the transverse acceleration of the missile following such a course is given. The application of the method is illustrated for a particular set of values of the various parameters. Graphical pictures of several courses are given together with curves of corresponding missile acceleration against proximity to target. The report treats only courses for which the navigational correction constant is 2. Other courses are at present being analyzed by machine integration.
