Abstract:

This effort proposed is tailored for a hypersonic class missile "UAV" to evaluate the opportunity to optimize fragment dispersion as it relates to the engagement geometry and timing uncertainty for threat classes that are intercepted within the atmosphere. Store separation, or in the proposed context, smart dispense of a lethality enhancement device, is extremely difficult to evaluate via analytical means without validating the predicted solutions with ground test. Essentially, the problem is characterized by the canister separation from the UAV, canister blast dynamics, and particle dispersion in a hypersonic flow. Pattern shaping to enhance lethality based on engagement geometry and intercept timing uncertainly is accomplished by independent ignition timing for each of the dispensed canisters.
