THE MISSILE DESIGNER'S APPROACH TO STABILITY AND CONTROL PROBLEMS
ADVISORY GROUP FOR AERONAUTICAL RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT PARIS (FRANCE)
APPRECIABLE DIFF RENCE EXISTS IN THE ART OF STABILITY AND CONTROL AS PRACTICED IN IRCR FT MIS ILE D SIGN. B sic factors whic contribute o this iff renc are co veyed The discussion is divided into 3 major categories which de l, re p ctiv ly i is ile co figurations in contra istinction to aircraft configurations, the role of natural coordinates as they relate to stability and control concep s e iffere positions of aircraf a d missiles with respect to the technological state-of-the-art. It is perceived that while alleviating f c or uc as ystem noncriticali y d utopilots tend to r uce the precision required in issile design, these are at least offset by the demands for extensions relative to t or ic l and empirical state of e art an for the integra io of the esign within diverse over-all objectives.
