Abstract:

A METHODOLOGY FOR UNDERSTANDING DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPON DAMAGE TO ARMY AIRCRAFT, AND TECHNIQUES FOR ASSESSMENT AND REPAIR OF THAT DAMAGE ARE PROPOSED. EXISTING MODELS FOR HIGH POWER LASER INTERACTIONS WITH MATERIALS AND TARGETS WILL BE USED TO MODEL FAILURE MODES OF ALREADY DAMAGED COMPONENTS. A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN WILL BE DEVELOPED DURING PHASE I FOR HIGH ENERGY LASER TESTS ON HELICOPTER COMPONENTS TO BE PERFORMED DURING PHASE II. LASER INTERACTION CODES WILL BE EXPLOITED TO MAKE THE NECESSARY PRE-TEST PREDICTIONS AND ASSIST IN THE DEFINITION OF TEST PARAMETERS. THE RESULTING UNDERSTANDING OF COMPONENT DAMAGE MODES AND PHEBNOMENOLOGY WILL PROVIDE THE BASES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF BATTLE DAMAGE ASSESSMENT METHODS AND THE DEFINITION OF BATTLE DAMAGE REPAIR TECHNIQUES AND EQUIPMENT.
