Summary form only given. We suggest a novel vector soliton system managed by angle of deflection. The vector model describes angularly deflected propagation of the two polarization modes interacting in an AlGaAs planar waveguide. The coupling of the two field is via cross-phase modulation, four-wave mixing and three terms owing only to nonlinear anisotropy. By means of an extensive series of direct numerical simulations, we study the interaction between fundamental solitons for different values of the deflection angle, refractive anisotropy, and induced birefringence coefficients. We find that the interaction picture involves vector bound states in the form of breather solitons, beam annihilation and steering.
