Abstract:

THE PROBLEM OF STRIKING A GUERRILLA TARGET WITHOUT DESTRUCTION OF AGRICULTURAL AND URBAN ASSETS RESTRICTS THE NUMBER OF WEAPONS AVAILABLE TO MILITARY PLANNERS. THIS EFFORT ADDRESSES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING AIR LAUNCHED HYPERVELOCITY ROCKETS (HVR'S) WITH MULTIPLE WARHEAD PENETRATORS TO DEFEAT GUERRILLA TROOPS AND EQUIPMENT. THE CONCEPT PROVIDES EFFECTIVE AIR-TO-GROUND ASSAULT CAPABILITY AGAINST GROUND VEHICLES, BUILDINGS, AND PERSONNEL WHEN FIRED FROM WING MOUNTED PODS ON FIGHTER AIRCRAFT. UNIQUE TO THE PROPOSED APPROACH IS THE SIMPLICITY OF ALLOWING A WEAPON MIX TO BE EMPLOYED ON A SINGLE AIR VEHICLE TO ENHANCE THE STRIKE CAPABILITY AGAINST UNEXPECTED TARGETS THAT MAY BE ENCOUNTERED. THE CONCEPT WILL ALSO PROVIDE AIR-TOAIR DEFENSE AGAINST ENEMY FIXED WING AND ROTARY AIRCRAFT. DUE TO ITS SIMPLE NATURE THE SYSTEM WOULD BE INEXPENSIVE, TAMPERPROOF, AND IMMUNE TO EW COUNTERMEASURES. THE VERY SHORT TIME ON TARGET OF HYPERVELOCITY PROJECTILES DOES NOT ALLOW THE TARGET TO MANEUVER OR REACT.
