Abstract:

THIS PAPER PROPOSES AN ADVANCED KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS SYSTEM THAT WILL SUPPORT NAVAL MISSION WORLD WIDE. THE WARFARE CONCEPT IS BASED ON AN ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCH CONCEPT WHERE LARGE NUMBERS OF 150 KG PROJECTILES ARE LAUNCHED IN ANTICIPATION OF A CONFLICT. THE PROJECTILES WOULD BE BOOSTED INTO 120 MINUTE ORBITS BY SMALL SOLID ROCKETS. THE PROJECTILES COULD BE CALLED DOWN INDIVIDUALLY BY FORCES UNDER ATTACK BY PROGRAMMING DE-ORBIT BURNS FOR PROJECTILES NEARING THE TARGET. THE PROJECTILES WOULD STEER IN AIR TO IMPACT THE TARGET. THE ABILITY TO BUILD UP AND REDUCE AT WILL, THE STORE OF KINETIC WEAPONS IN LOW EARTH ORBIT COULD HAVE A CHILLING EFFECT ON THE AGGRESSOR BECAUSE THESE WEAPONS WOULD BE VISIBLE WITH FIELD GLASSES AT NIGHT. TECHNOLOGY EXISTS TODAY TO LAUNCH PROJECTILES INTO SPACE, STORE, AND GUIDE THEM INDIVIDUALLY OR IN MASS TO TARGETS ANYWHERE ON EARTH. THE WEAPONS COULD BE USED TO DEFEND SHIPS, AIRCRAFT, AND LAND FORCES SIMULTANEOUS. THE COST TO DEVELOP THIS SYSTEM AND THE TECHNICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RISKS WILL BE DEVELOPED AS WELL AS A METHODOLOGY FOR PLACING A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM IN OPERATION.
