A curved grid fin that is constructed of strips of thin gauge metal such as steel honeycomb secured together in a grid pattern with the honeycomb structure enclosed around a periphery thereof by a thin support structure that is secured thereto in a conventional manner and with a base structure secured to the thin support structure to provide a fin that is designed to be mounted on a missile to provide a fin structure that can control or guide a missile as well as provide a breaking or deceleration means for control of a missile or payload.
A grid fin for use with a guided missile, comprising: (a) a honeycomb porous core structure comprised of thin gauge material for permitting air to flow therethrough substantially unrestricted when said grid fin is transverse of said air flow; (b) a support structure for supporting said core structure; and (c) means for mounting said support structure on a control mechanism of said missile for relative movement between said missile and said support structure.
