Opportunity For Enhanced Performance Of Ballistic Missile Propulsion Systems
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
The overall weight of the interceptor for the boost phase interception is heavily driven by the payload and upper stages. Weight saved here has a leveraged impact on the overall vehicle weight or kill vehicle velocity. A key component of the kill vehicleweight is the divert and altitude control systems. FMW proposes to apply two new innovative technologies to the divert/altitude control systems to dramatically reduce weight The success of the Phase I and II SBIR activity will result in themanufacturing scale-up of the enhanced composite materials. After military demonstration of the performance enhancement capability of this technology, it can be transferred to commercial space applications.
