Abstract:

IN MANEUVERING REENTRY VEHICLE ENGAGEMENT STUDIES, IT IS USUALLY NECESSARY TO DRIVE A SET OF "EFFECTIVE" EVASION TRAJECTORIES TO OBTAIN A REALISTIC ESTIMATE OF THE PENETRATION CAPABILITY OF THE OFFENSE. ANALYTIC TECHNIQUES AND SMALL COMPUTER CODES HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED TO TREAT EVASION PERFORMANCE OF THE MARV RELATIVE TO THE INTERCEPTOR, BUT HAVE IGNORED THE PROBLEMS SUCH AS VECHICLE IMPOSES ON THE RADAR. ONE SUCH FACTOR IS THAT THE WIDER THREAT TUBE AVAILABLE WITH THE MARV MAY STRESS THE RADAR SEARCH PERFORMANCE TO THE POINT THAT LEAKAGE OCCURS. IN THIS ACTIVITY, AN EXAMINATION OF THE COMBINED EFFECTS OF EVASION AND THREAT TUBE WIDENING (AND THE PROPER MIX ONE SHOULD USE) WILL BE CONDUCTED. A METHODOLOGY (AND ULTIMATELY A SMALL COMPUTER CODE) WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR DETERMINING THE OPTIMAL MARV TRAJECTORY MIX AND THE RESULTANT PENETRATION EFFECTIVENESS AS A FUNCTION OF OFFENSE/DEFENSE CHARACTERISTICS.
