A system for controlling the velocity and attitude of an exoatmospheric projectile (10) that spins about a spin axis (z). Several thrusters (e.g., 1-7) are disposed along the outer surface (8, 9, 11) of the projectile (10) for performing three prescribed functions. The number of thrusters (e.g., 1-7) is minimized to save weight. As few as four thrusters (1-4) can be used to perform the three prescribed functions, which are: (A) reorienting the spin axis (z) in inertial space, by firing the axial thrusters (1, 2, 6, 7); (B) adding velocity to the projecti...
A system for controlling the velocity and attitude of an exoatmospheric projectile spinning about a spin axis and having a generally cylindrical outer shape consisting of a generally cylindrical periphery whose long axis is the spin axis, and front and aft generally circular faces located at opposing ends of the generally cylindrical periphery, said system comprising: a first axial thruster positioned on the front face and having a force vector pointing inwardly through the projectile; a second axial thruster positioned on the aft face and having a force...
