Abstract:

MDA is seeking means of performing post-flight reconstruction without negatively impacting the threat-representative nature of host object signatures, using telemetry bandwidth, or inordinate expense. Current techniques using ground assets can provide 3 degree of freedom (3DOF) style trajectory information but lack the ability to reliably discern angular rates and positions for most geometries and objects. IERUS proposes the development of resonant features tuned to BMDS test range radar assets. The unique radar characteristics of these features can be used to reconstruct angular position and rate data. By selecting the correct ground assets and carefully designing the features, they can have a negligible to non-existent impact in both BMDS bands of interest while exhibiting a highly resonant characteristics to ground sensors. The IERUS solution, can be manufactured cheaply and applied to a wide-variety of objects. The features could be printed on materials using conducting inks.
