Compound seeker technology is a new technical solution to realize precise guidance, which has higher precision and countercountermeasure performance than singlemode seeker. Compound imaging guidance technology is capable of capturing sufficient target information such as target shape, basic structure, etc, suppressing the background interference and recognizing the target reliably, so it is an important development direction for compound seeker technology. The features of visual TV/IR imaging compound homing guidance technique are analyzed, and the status quo of the compound seekers is introduced. Some key techniques and principles are described. Finally, a design example of visual TV/IR imaging compound homing guidance is provided and its developing trend is forecasted.
