The blended control of a tail-controlled agile missile with attitude control motors is discussed. A controller, including aerodynamic control surface and pulse type lateral jets, was developed. It was divided into two parts: the control law and the blend logic. The control law can be designed easily as before, and the blend logic commands the two actuators. Simulations had been carried out to show the performance. Effect of the distance between motors and the center of gravity of the interceptor had also been discussed.
