The invention relates to improvements in homing missiles and more specifically to an improved automatic steering system for directing a moving body equipped with steering gear toward a target source of wave energy. The system is intended for use in a self-propelled, deep underwater torpedo to be directed toward a submerged submarine, and operates on the echo ranging principle rather than from sound generated by the submarine itself.
