Variable coupling arrangement for an integrated missile steering system

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #6315239.

An integrated system for missile steering, which uses both jet reaction control (JRC) and aerofin control systems, is provided with a variable coupling mechanism for adjusting the relative responsiveness of the two systems in accordance with the pressurization state of the JRC system pressure chamber. In one embodiment, the pivoting action of a joystick which actuates the gas flow control pintles of the JRC system is permitted only under sufficient pressurization of the pressure chamber. In a second embodiment, the extent to which the pintles protrude from their controllable housings is adjusted according to the pressure in the pressure chamber. In this manner, when JRC is undesirable or is unavailable, the missile aerofins are permitted their full range of motion without being constrained by the pintles.
