Abstract:

"The proposed program will investigate the feasibility and benefits of an efficient piezoelectric (PZT) vibration control system for electrical/optical guidance component mounts in seeker missiles. The Phase I objective will investigate a through thicknessPZT rod/fiber architecture for composite optical benches in the seekers. The study will concentrate on the typical seeker missile vibrations generated from three environmental scenarios: aircraft carry, flyout, and homing. Increased performance,reliability and improved resolution of the optical train is the expected outcome of using the PZT composite. The Phase I paper study will model and examine the use of combination PZT fiber and rod composites as combined sensors and actuators integratedwithin existing structural components. The final benefit of the a Phase II endeavor will bring increased resolution, reliability, and accuracy to seeker missile optical functions. The Phase I investigation of PZT sensors/actuators to reduce vibration ofseeker missile electronic housings is expected provide specific feasibility information of improving the efficacy of a range of similar structures."
