Abstract:

THE POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AN DEPLOYMENT OF SPACE-BASED SUR- VEILLANCE, BOOST-PHASE AND MIDCOURSE BALLISTIC MISSILE DEFENSE SYSTEMS BY ADVERSARY NATIONS HAS PROMPTED THE STUDY OF POTENTIAL RESPONSE TO INHIBIT BOOST AND MIDCOURSE PHASE TARGETING AND ENGAGEMENT BY HOSTILE SPACE SURVEILLANCEAND WEAPON SYSTEMS. A PROPOSED RESPONSE TO HOSTILE SPACE SURVEILLANCE, TARGETING, AND ENGAGEMENT OF ICBMS AND/OR THEIR LAUNCHERS, TO ACHIEVE BOTH BASING AND REENTRY VEHICLE SURVIVABILITY IN THE BOOST OR MIDCOURSE PHASES, IS THE USE OF SHORT-BURN-TIME TACTICS TO INHIBIT OR PREVENT ICBM LAUNCH DETECTION AND TRACKING FROM ORBIT. SHORT-BURN-TIME TACTICS COULD REDUCE THE TIME A SPACE SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM COULD DETECT, TRACT AND TARGET A THRUSTING ICBM ABOVE THE ATMOSPHERE/CLOUD COVER. THIS STUDY IDENTIFIES TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR SHORT-BURN-TIME ICBMS USING ULTRA-HIGH BURNING RATE SOLID ROCKET PROPELLANTS, MUCH LIKE THOSE USED IN CURRENT STATE-OF-THE ART ANTIBALLISTIC MISSILE(ABM) INTERCEPTOR SOLID ROCKET MOTORS. APPLICATIONS OF OTHER ABM INTERCEPTOR TECH NOLOGY SUCH AS STRUCTURES, MATERIALS AND THRUST VECTOR CONTROL SYSTEMS, TO SHORT-BURN-TIME ICBMS IS ALSO IDENTIFIED, AS ARE CRITICAL TECHNOLOGIES AND TECHNOLOGY ISSUES.
