A reliable and inexpensive attitude control system uses a plurality of pitch-over thrusters to perform rapid and precise attitude maneuvers for a flight vehicle. The pitch-over thrusters create rotational moments that directly pitch and yaw the flight vehicle. The use of very simple thrusters and control techniques provides for a reliable and cost effective solution. The ability to perform overlapping pitch and yaw maneuvers with single-shot fixed-impulse thrusters provides for high-speed maneuverability.


We claim: 1. An attitude control system for a flight vehicle selected from a missile, kill vehicle (KV) or space craft, comprising: at least four thrusters on the flight vehicle and displaced from the vehicle center of gravity, said thruster generating thrust vectors with a fixed impulse that produce rotational moments to directly pitch and yaw the flight vehicle; and a fire controller configured to issue start firing commands to a first set of said thrusters to slew the flight vehicle and to issue stop firing commands to a second set of said thrusters ...
