Description: Parameters that enter into equation of trajectory of a missile are discussed. Investigation is made of normal pursuit, of constant, proportional, and line--of-sight methods of navigation employing target seeker, and of deriving corresponding pursuit paths. Pursuit paths obtained under similar conditions for different methods are compared. Proportional navigation is concluded to be best method for using target seeker installed in missile.
