Rapid End-game Assessment Package (REAP)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Invocon proposes the Rapid End-game Assessment Package (REAP), a highly-integrated health monitoring and lethality assessment instrumentation system for target missiles. The resulting instrumentation will save space, weight, telemetry bandwidth, and integration time compared to current targets. Features include: a) lethality assessment circuitry combined with health monitoring circuitry; b) Interfaces for distributed digital transducers; and c) Smart telemetry sharing between health & status and the lethality assessment to reduce telemetry BW. These features will result in more cost effective target instrumentation. The instrumentation system itself will cost less, but simplifying the integration will provide the most significant cost savings. As a standalone system, it will provide significant benefits to the missile community. However, it will provide significantly more benefits when combined with two other proposed technology developments. It will be designed to enable integration with the Intra-Missile Communication System proposed for topic MDA08-001, and it will accept inputs from Invocon's proposed solution for a Wireless "Hit Grid" proposed under this topic (MDA08-008).
