A method of defeating an incoming missile, such as a rocket propelled grenade, includes soft launching an interceptor missile, and then using pitch over motors of the interceptor missile to alter course of the missile to a desired interception direction. By launching at a relatively slow speed, such as a speed less than or equal to 40 m/sec (130 ft/sec), the interceptor missile may reach the desired interception direction within 250 milliseconds of launch. The interceptor missile may be able to cover substantially all interception directions over a hemis...
1. A method of intercepting a projectile, the method comprising: determining an interception direction for an interceptor missile;launching the missile in a given direction at a nonzero speed less than or equal to 40 m/sec; andaltering course of the missile, accomplished within 250 milliseconds of launch, to the interception direction for intercepting the projectile. 2. The method of claim 1, wherein the determining includes determining the interception direction from a range of possible interception directions that includes substantially all directions ...
