Advancements are being made in inertial navigation and re-entry vehicle technology that will improve U.S. strategic missile survivability against Soviet anti-ballistic missile defense systems and provide the near pin-point accuracy needed to destroy hardened targets. The small ICBM is considered a pathfinder for advanced guidance and re-entry vehicle technologies needed to defeat Soviet ABM systems and hard targets. Litton, Honeywell and General Electric are competing against Northrop's AIRS guidance ball, while ring laser gyros show promise for the demanding ballistic missile guidance role. (Author.
