Abstract:

Inflight guidance of a missile is provided by a plurality of orthogonally disposed wing panels which can be rotated by a self-centering biased torque producing lever-ball joint assembly. A plurality of solenoids, operatively positioned proximate to a rotary cam member, are individually selectively activated to engage the rotary cam member which inclines the torque producing lever-ball joint assembly and rotates the wing panels in a desired direction.
