overshoot

a momentary excessive response of an electrical or mechanical system

overshoot

[′ō·vər‚shüt]
(electromagnetism)
The reception of microwave signals where they were not intended, due to an unusual atmospheric condition that sets up variations in the index of refraction.
(engineering)
An initial transient response to a unidirectional change in input which exceeds the steady-state response.
The maximum amount by which this transient response exceeds the steady-state response.

overshoot

The projection of an upper story beyond the wall of the story below, commonly on the front of the house but sometimes on the sides as well; frequently called a jetty. Also see framed overhang and hewn overhang.

overshoot

i. To fly beyond, over, or past a specific place, spot, boundary, object, or the like. The aircraft overshot its sector.
ii. To fly beyond or to bring an airplane down beyond an airfield, runway, or designated mark or spot while attempting to land at that airfield or place.
iii. In armament work (i.e., strafing and rocketry), to shoot a projectile beyond the target.
iv. In air combat, to fly over another airplane when following through in an attack and land up ahead of the aircraft being followed.
v. In bombing, to fly beyond the target; hence, to drop a bomb on the far side of the target.
vi. To be “on the overshoot” means that portion of the flight that occurs after a missed approach, as in “go around.”
