Abstract:

AN ALL-ELECTRONIC, ANTI-ARMOR WARHEAD FUZE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IS PROPOSED. THE BASIC COMPONENTS OF THE FUZE ARE: (1) A DIODE LASER PROXIMITY SENSOR THAT UTILIZES A SINGLE OPTICAL PATH AND COHERENT DETECTION SCHEME THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR ANGLE-OFOBLIQUITY DATA DERIVATION, AND (2) AN ELECTRONIC SAFE-ARM DEVICE WITH MULTI-WARHEAD INTERVAL TIMER, AND (3) EXPLODING FOIL INITIATOR FIRE SETS TO INITIATE MULTIPLE WARHEADS AT PRECISE TIMES DETERMINED BY THE FUZE SYSTEM. QUANTIC, WITH SUPPORT FROM DIGITAL SIGNAL CORPORATION (A SMALL BUSINESS), HAS BUILT BRASSBOARDS OF ALL THREE SUBSYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WOULD PERFORM DESIGN TRADE STUDIES TO DETERMINE A COST-EFFECTIVE ARCHITECTURE THAT SOLVES THE AIR FORCE PROBLEM. THE MAJOR PRODUCT OF PHASE I IS A LEVEL I DRAWING PACKAGE FOR A PHASE II HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION THAT ACHIEVES AIR FORCE ANTI-ARMOR FUZE PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES.
