A lateral thrust assembly for missile maneuvering comprises an annular array of outwardly directed nozzles, each nozzle having a releasable plug normally blocking flow of propellant gases out of the nozzle. A plug release mechanism associated with each plug allows that plug to be released to open the respective nozzle. A combustion chamber containing propellant is connected to the inner ends of all the nozzles. The propellant is ignited when one or more selected plugs are released to allow opening of the associated nozzle or nozzles, controlling the dire...
A lateral thrust assembly for maneuvering of an airborne vehicle during flight, comprising: an annular array of outwardly directed nozzles having open inner ends; propellant supply means for supplying propellant gases to the inner ends of all the nozzles after ignition; plug means extending across each nozzle for normally resisting flow of propellant gases through the nozzle after ignition; and plug release means associated with each nozzle for selectively releasing one or more of the plug means at or before ignition to allow opening of the selected nozz...
