Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19827168A1] The invention relates to a missile guidance method, more particularly for anti-armor projectiles fired directly at a target. In order to avoid missing a target by a narrow margin, the invention provides that the distance to the target (3) be measured with a range finder (8) before the projectile is fired. The flying time previously calculated on the basis of target distance is inputted to the projectile (1). The projectile (1) has one or several sensors which are activated after a predetermined flying time, said sensor or sensors determining whether the projectile (1) will fly over the target at a minimum distance. Optionally, the projectile (1) conducts a single trajectory adjustment with a fixed value.
