This thesis presents the flight trajectory analysis for the Missile. It has been known that the missile performance during its flight governed by the flight equation of motions. The present work has presented the flight dynamics analysis for AGM-65 Maverick missiles model. Through this work it can be conclude, in manner how to solve the governing equations are simpler compared to the effort for providing the aerodynamics data or the mass and inertia of the missile. This work presents trajectory of air -to-surface missile attacking a fixed target constraint. The missile must hit the target from above, subject to the missile dynamics and path constraints. The problem is reinterpreted using optimal control theory resulting in the formulation of minimum integrated altitude. The formulation entails nonlinear, three-dimensional missile flight dynamics, boundary conditions and path constraints. The generic shape of optimal trajectory is know how will be the change of the range, altitude and Y- axis deflection with time. The numerical solution of path equations is solved by computer code that can compute the position of missile at any time.
