Development Of An Advanced Weapons Simulation Computer Model

"This proposal will develop a new computer model to predict the effects of alternative interception strategies under consideration for incorporation into the emerging weapon systems tasked to neutralize enemy threat clouds in the event of a hostile missileattack. Traditional U.S. countermeasures focus on hit-to-kill methodology as a result of treaty limitations. The hit-to-kill approach requires extreme precision coupled with flawless target discrimination and thus presents an extreme technical challengesubject to defeat through relatively low-tech countermeasures. However, recent geopolitical shifts have prompted the U.S to extradite its self from these restrictions. This will allow exploration of a wider range of defenses. The proposed program to bedeveloped will model interactions between candidate new defenses and threat clouds in trial scenarios in a manner analogous to the presently employed PEELS (Parametric Endo/Exo Atmospheric Lethality Simulation) program used for 2-body hit-to-killsimulations. The program will be anchored to presently utilized simulation programs so as to provide seamless defensive strategy development. This will allow rapid screening and development of potential alternative defenses and deployment tactics notcovered by existing simulations models such as PEELS, KIDD, and PEGEM to enhance National security. The objective of this proposal is to develop a computer model, called the Volume-Engaging Weapo
