Abstract:

Current precision guided weapons utilize GPS/INS and seeker technologies for guidance to ground targets. GPS/INS systems work by acquiring position and velocity information and maneuvering to given target coordinates entered before release. If seeker technology is used, target-tracking techniques are employed to guide to the final target. The need to precisely attack fixed/moveable targets has come to the forefront in the most recent conflicts. Seekers bring high accuracy for moving/moveable targets but also much higher cost and greater mission planning, power, and cooling requirements. The ability to attack this class of targets without the expense and issues associated with seekers is desirable. This proposal presents a novel concept for precision guidance against fixed/moveable ground targets for implementation in air-launched munitions.
