  Guidance system Summary
A guidance system is a device or group of devices used to navigate a ship, aircraft, missile, rocket, satellite, or other craft.
Systems that are intended to have a high degree of human interaction are usually referred to as a navigation system.
An inertial guidance system consists of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) combined with control mechanisms, allowing the path of a vehicle to be controlled according to the position determined by the inertial navigation system.

 The FlyWay Guidance System
well functioning guidance system is so essential to the functioning of the beam network that most components whooly or partly fulfill tasks that are, in some way or other, also filled by other components.
There is a considerable redundancy in the system, with the aim of keeping the traffic running safely even in the face of failing components or system parts.
The implementation of such a system, with the ambition that it should be able to grow painlessly, and without alterations, as the network grows and becomes more complex, is a daunting task.

The systems were stationed in Kuwait and successfully destroyed a number of hostile surface-to-surface missiles using the new PAC-3 and guidance enhanced missiles.
The target acquisition system in the missile acquires the target in the terminal phase of flight and transmits the data using the TVM downlink via the ground radar to the engagement control station for final course correction calculations.
As the missile approaches the target, the TVM guidance system is activated and the missile is steered towards the target.

 GPS/INS Precision Guidance System
This targeting option is used primarily against fixed or relocateable targets, where the location of the target is expected to remain fixed for the duration of planning and execution of the attack.
In low cost un-powered weapons, the guidance system adjusts the weapon's free fall to hit a pre-selected point fed into the weapon prior to takeoff.
GPS guidance provides very efficient means for coordinated attack, as they are unaffected by weather, target concealment or countermeasures.

 More Bang, Less Buck - Low-Cost GPS/INS Guidance for Navy Munitions Launches - GPS World
If a continuous track of a full complement of GPS satellites can be maintained all the way to the target, the guidance system has an accurate state on which to base steering commands and a very low-performance (low-cost) IMU may be employed.
To ensure that weapon system performance requirements are met, the cost of adding robustness to the loss of GPS can be traded off against the cost of a higher-performing IMU.
It is precisely this trade-off that Draper exploited to come up with a low-cost guidance system that meets the mission performance needs.

Western Electric became prime contractor for the XSAM-G-7 Nike missile system, and Douglas as primary subcontractor was responsible for the missile airframe.
One of the major disadvantages of the Nike Ajax system was that the guidance system could handle only one target at a time.
Other problematic features of the Nike Ajax system were the liquid-fuel rocket motor with its highly toxic propellants, and the large size of a complete site with all components, which made Nike Ajax to all intents and purposes a fixed-site air defense system.
