Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9801719A1] A means for increasing the drag of a munition to effect a course correction having coplanar interlocking pairs of drag plates (24, 26) being laterally extendable from an undeployed configuration, substantially contained within the munition, to a deployed configuration. The drag plates (101, 103) are provided with projections (34, 38) and slots (36, 40), the projections (34, 38) of one of a pair of drag plates being adapted to locate in the slots (34, 40) of the other drag plate in the undeployed configuration and being adapted such that they extend beyond halfway into the munition. A deployment means (60, 62, 70, 72) retains the drag plates in the undeployed configuration until receipt of a control signal and then effects deployment of the drag plates, the distance travelled between the deployed and undeployed configurations being determined by the extent of the projections (34, 38).
