Description: The article deals with the construction of guidance systems based on traditional and perspective topology. It is noted that, at present, fourth-generation guided missiles are used in high-precision weapons systems that are in service with developed countries. The guidance systems of these missiles are, as a rule, constructed according to the traditional (classical) topology. The analysis of the construction of such systems. The requirements for advanced fifth-generation precision weapons are considered. It is noted that the guidance systems of the fifth generation missiles are built according to a promising topology. It is concluded that it is necessary to use control laws in guidance systems that require the measurement of the missile-target range. The features of the construction of modern active seeker are considered. The conclusions of specialists are given that the technologies used for digital signal processing have exhausted almost all possibilities for increasing the range of target detection by an active seeker. How promising are the issues of using two-band cm/mm of semi-active-active seeker, the transition of active seeker to use a 3.5 mm wavelength band. The results of experiments conducted in the design office Almaz - Antey, confirming the advantages of using the 3.5 mm wavelength range are presented. The features of the construction of ground-based systems of anti-aircraft missiles with the use of missiles with active seeker are noted. It is concluded that the development of active seeker and computing tools predetermined the construction of promising high-precision weapons systems to a greater extent as homing systems.
