CLAIMS

1. A rudder control assembly (2) for a missile (1 ), the rudder control assembly (2) comprising:

a first actuator (20) connectable to a rudder (16), which first actuator (20) is configured to steer the rudder (16) when connected to the rudder (16);

a coupling element (22) for connecting the first actuator (20) to the rudder (16); and

a second actuator (24) for locking the rudder (16) in a fixed position, wherein the second actuator (24) comprises a locking element (26), which is configured to lock and unlock the rudder (16) and which locking element (26) also is configured to connect the first actuator (20) with the rudder (16) by means of the coupling element (22) when unlocking the rudder (16).

2. The rudder control assembly (2) according to claim 1 , wherein

the coupling element (22) comprises a first coupling piece (32) arranged on the first actuator (20) and second coupling piece (34) arranged on the rudder (16).

3. The rudder control assembly (2) according to claim 2, wherein

the first and second coupling pieces (32, 34) have complementary shapes.

4. The rudder control assembly (2) according to claim 3, wherein

the complementary shapes of the first and second coupling pieces (32, 34) are conically shapes.

5. The rudder control assembly (2) according to any one of claims 2-4, wherein

the second coupling piece (34) arranged on the rudder (16) comprises an axially movable shaft (36).

6. The rudder control assembly (2) according to claim 5, wherein

the first coupling piece (32) comprises a bore (38), which is configured to receive the axially movable shaft (36).

7. The rudder control assembly (2) according to any one of claims 5-6, wherein a spring element (40) is arranged to axially move the axially movable shaft (36) towards the first coupling piece (32).

8. The rudder control assembly (2) according to any one of claims 5-7, wherein

the axially movable shaft (36) in a first axial position is configured to be locked by the locking element (26) and disconnected from first coupling piece (32), and wherein

the axially movable shaft (36) in a second axial position is configured to be released by the locking element (26) and connected to the first coupling piece (32).

9. The rudder control assembly (2) according to claim 8, wherein

the locking element (26) comprises a movable pin (42) connected to the second actuator (24), which movable pin (42) is configured to be received in a recess (44) in the axially movable shaft (36).

10. The rudder control assembly (2) according to claim 9, wherein

the locking element (26) comprises a groove (46), which is configured to receive a protrusion (48) of the axially movable shaft (36) when the axially movable shaft (36) is locked in the first axial position, and which protrusion (48) is configured to leave the groove (46) when the axially movable shaft (36) is situated in the second axial position and connected to the first coupling piece (32).

1 1. A missile (1), comprising a rudder control assembly (2) according to any of the preceding claims.

12. A method, performed by a control device (100), for testing a first actuator (20) of a rudder control assembly (2) for a missile (1 ), which first actuator (20) is connectable to a rudder (16), and which first actuator (20) is configured to steer the rudder (16) when connected to the rudder (16); the rudder control assembly (2) comprising: a coupling element (22) for connecting the first actuator (20) to the rudder (16); and

a second actuator (24) for locking the rudder (16) in a fixed position, wherein the second actuator (24) comprises a locking element (26), which is configured to lock and unlock the rudder (16) and which locking element (26) also is configured to connect the first actuator (20) with the rudder by means of the coupling element (22) when unlocking the rudder (16), the method comprising:

activating (s101) the first actuator (20) to move when the rudder (16) is locked in the fixed position, and

determining (s102) if the first actuator (20) moves when activated.

13. The method according to claim 12, wherein the method further comprising:

activating (s103) the second actuator (24) for unlocking the rudder (16), if it is determined that first actuator (20) moves when activated.

14. A computer program (P) comprising instructions which, when the program (P) is executed by a computer (100; 500), cause the computer (100; 500) to carry out the method according to any one of the claims 12-13.

15. A computer-readable medium comprising instructions, which when executed by a computer (100; 500), cause the computer (100; 500) to carry out the method accord-ing to any one of claims 12-13.
