Abstract:

CURRENT PENETRATION AID SYSTEMS FOR STRATEGIC BALLISTIC MISSILES RELY ON THE USE OF REPLICA OR SIMULATION DECOYS TO CONFUSE THE ENEMY. SIMULATION OF THE OBSERVABLE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LARGE REENTRY VEHICLES WITH SMALL REPLICA DECOYS IS A DIFFICULT TECHNOLOGY. ANTISIMULATION IS A TACTIC WHEREBY THE STATISTICAL DISTRIBUTION OF THE REENTRY VEHICLES IS BROADENED, THUS RELAXING THE SIMULATION REQUIREMENTS FOR REPLICA DECOYS. SPARTA PROPOSES TO DEVELOP APPROACHES AND TECHNIQUES TO ANTI-SIMULATION THAT HAVE A MINIMUM IMPACT ON THE PERFORMANCE OF THE EXISTING STRATEGIC MISSILE FORCE. WE PROPOSE TO CORRELATE THE VARIABILITY IN CURRENT MANUFACTURING PROCESSES WITH THE STATISTICAL DISTRIBUTION OF VARIOUS RADAR AND OPTICAL OBSERVABLES AND THE TARGETING ACCURACY AND SURVIVABILITY. THIS CORRELATION WILL THEN BE USED TO ASSESS THE PAYOFF IN RELAXING MANUFACTURING QUALITY CONTROL PROCEDURES AND/OR IN RECOMMENDING SLIGHT MODIFICATIONS TO THE REENTRY VEHICLE AND DECOY DESIGN.
