Telemetry Impact Reduction for Target Objects
MDA is tasked with the developing and fielding missile defense systems capable of defending theaters, regions, and nations. During testing, ballistic missile target are designed to represent certain threat(s). In order to use flight test data to anchor M & S, data must be collected from the flight, resulting in significant instrumentation on the target. This instrumentation is, in and of itself, non-threat representative. A primary source of impact to the BMDS observables results from the RF signature and IR signature perturbations caused by antennas. IERUS proposes the development of compact antenna elements for BMDS telemetry bands whose RF signature has been minimized in the BMDS radar bands (S and X-bands). The compact nature of the antennas limits the surface area of the antenna structures minimizing the impact to all signature spaces. To achieve this innovative goal, IERUS will leverage our expertise in global optimization and antenna design.
