Abstract:

Defensive missiles are being developed to intercept reentry vehicles and tactical ballistic missiles before their conventional, chemical and nuclear warheads can reach their targets. Both hit-to-kill (HTK) interceptors and fragmentation warheads are being devised. The proposed R & D will develop an ultra-high speed framing camera that will photograph the last 100 microseconds before collision. Fifteen images of the collision will be taken in succession during the 100 microseconds with a resolution of 1 centimeter. By imaging the collision, the proposed ultra-high speed camera will directly record the physical properties in and around the warhead location to provide a definitive measure of the interceptor"s lethality. The proposed camera would also be valuable in the development of interceptors with the required accuracy.
