Abstract:

A method for eliminating boresight error in a beamrider missile guidance system wherein moving parts may disrupt alignment of a nutated beam. Periodic strobing of a light emitting source directs beams of light to form an optical reticle which may function as either the boresight alignment check source or as the telescope aiming reticle.
