Abstract:

Precision-guided autonomous munitions concepts are immediately adaptable for use in a low-cost kinetic energy penetrator deployed from the EX 172 Cargo Round projectile. Feasibility of implementing an autonomous KE penetrator concept can be demonstratednear-term using gun-hardened micro components developed for exo-atmospheric miniature interceptors. Tanner Research is proposing to integrate MEMS-based spectral seeker and thruster components (using deflagrating energetics) as key enabling technologies toimplement an autonomous KE penetrator. The smart KE penetrator is presumably fired from the upgraded 5
