Abstract:

A FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED ON A NOVEL IDEA FOR A DESIGN OF A SEMI-SMART PROJECTILE FOR KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS, AND IN PARTICULAR, EML WEAPONS. THE TECHNOLOGY FOR THIS DESIGN IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. IT WOULD BE INTRINSICALLY HARD TO THE 100000 G ACCELERATIONS EXPERIENCE BY AN EML PROJECTILE AND WOULD HAVE A GREATLY IMPROVED PROBABILITY OF HIT (AND KILL) OVER A CLASSICAL DUMB PROJECTILE AGAINST ICBM AND SLBM BOOSTERS.
