A lateral thruster for missiles is provided which comprises two or more individually rotatable thruster motors with integral nozzles. If the thrusters are located at or near the center of gravity of the missile, the missile can be maneuvered while it remains pointed at the target. Locating the thrusters forward or aft of the missile center of gravity enables steering forces as well as lateral translational and roll forces to be provided. The thruster motors need not be disposed in pairs. The use of integral nozzles obviates sealing problems and allows mo...
A lateral thruster for a missile, comprising: a plurality of rotatable means for producing thrust, disposed about a longitudinal axis of a missile so that each produced thrust vector lies substantially in a plane transverse to said axis, each said rotatable means for producing thrust comprising an individual thruster motor and an integral nozzle, said integral thruster motor and nozzle being rotatable as a unit about an axis which is transverse to said plane; a plurality of means for rotating said means for producing thrust; and housing means for support...
