Projectiles fired toward a target are provided with target tracking devices for automatic guidance. To improve accuracy of fire at least one projectile in a burst is provided with an illumination source which is activated by a target detector at the end of the projectile trajectory. The source selectively illuminates the target and its closest surroundings with radiation for which the target tracking device in other projectiles is sensitive. A following projectile corrects its trajectory toward the target. All projectiles in a burst can be provided with ...
A weapon system for guiding projectiles to a target at which they are fired, said projectiles including: (a) at least one target illuminating projectile having illuminating means for directively transmitting illuminating electromagnetic radiation towards the target only during a latter part of a continuing path of travel of said illuminating projectile toward said target; and (b) at least one self-guided projectile having a target tracking device comprising: (1) receiving and detecting means adapted for receiving and detecting illuminating electromagneti...
