Abstract:

DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS POSE A POTENTIAL NEAR-TERM (1985-1990) THREAT TO U. S. ICBM SYSTEMS. A VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT OF THREE U. S. ICBM SYSTEMS IS PROPOSED. MAJOR EMPHASIS IS PLACED ON THE PEACEKEEPER, WITH LESSER WEIGHT GIVEN TO THE SMALL ICBM AND MINUTEMAN III SYSTEMS. THE PROPOSED METHODOLOGY WOULD INCLUDE RATING OF VULNERABLE COMPONENETS, FIRST-ORDER CALCULATIONS OF VULNERABILITY THREAT LEVELS, ASSESSMENT OF COMPONENT-DEGRADATION ON MISSION IMPACT, AND CONSIDERATION OF FIRST-ORDER DESIGN/HARDNESS TRADES TO REDUCE COMPONENT VULNERABILITY. THE BASELINE DIRECTED ENERGY THREAT CONSIDERED IS A CONTINUOUS-WAVE, HF/DF CHEMICAL LASER, BUT CONSIDERATION WILL ALSO BE GIVENTO REPETITIVELY PULSED DEVICES AS WELL AS LASERS OPERATING AT SHORTER WAVELENGTHS. THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT WILL RESULT IN A SYSTEM-SPECIFIC, FIRST-ORDER ASSESSMENT OF THE LASER VULNERABILITY OF PEACEKEEPER. IN ADDITION, GUIDANCE WILL BE PROVIDED FOR A PHASE II EFFORT IN TERMS OF IDENTIFYING DATA GAPS AND UNCERTAINTIES IN COMPONENT VUNERABILITY, AND POINTIG TO FURTHER IN VESTIGATONS IN THE AREA OF HARDENING REQUIREMENTS.
