The NACA has been investigating control systems suitable for target-seeking missiles. As part of this program, tests have been made in the Langley free-flight tunnel on a model of the GB-5 glide bomb equipped with a light-seeker control unit which applied control in response to deviations in sidewise displacement and angles of band and yaw.
