## Tactical and Strategic Missile Guidance (3 days)

### Summary

This three-day course will help you understand and appreciate the unique challenges of both tactical and strategic missile guidance. So everyone can clearly understand the principles of missile guidance, concepts are derived mathematically, explained from a heuristic perspective, and illustrated with numerical examples and computer animations. Course mathematics and examples are nonintimidating. Computer source code is included so interested participants and duplicate the examples presented and explore issues beyond the scope of the course.
