Introduction

Performance, and stability and control of the airframe are two important factors that determine the ability of the missile to carry a payload and also maneuver it into a position so as to destroy the aircraft. However this performance relates only to the maneuvering capabilities and motion characteristics of the missile and not to the overall e\ufb00ectiveness as a weapon.

1.1 Performance

The performance of missiles is governed by the Newton\u2019s Laws of Motion. Missiles require manuevering forces to accelerate them in the required direction. Depending on the medium in which they travel, missiles can be classi\ufb01ed as

(a) Aerodynamic Vehicles: When they travel through air maneuvering is possible through the mechanisms of aerodynamic forces i.e., lift and drag acting on the vehicle.

(b) Space Vehicles: When they travel in outer space, maneuvering is possible thrust
vectoring.
In this report, only the aerodynamic vehicles will be considered.
