This paper represents a study of the trajectories of an ideal missile homing on a target according to the proportional navigation law. A qualitative study is performed and conditions are determined which enable one to demonstrate that: 1) the missile always reaches the target regardless of the initial conditions at launch; 2) the rotational rate of the line of sight is decreasing at the pursuit end.
