Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO THE TECHNICAL NEEDS OF INTEGRATED ESTIMATION, GUIDANCE AND CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR ADVANCED BANK-TO-TURN (BTT) MISSILE APPLICATIONS. FOUR TECHNICAL INNOVATIONS ARE ANTICIPATED: (L) AN ADAPTIVE MULTIMODE SENSOR DATA FUSION RULE WHICH OPTIMIZES ACQUISITONS BY ACCOUNTING FOR INDIVIDUAL SENSOR'S CHARACTERISTICS AND THE VARYING ENVIRONMENT CONDITIONS; (2) A MANEUVERING TARGET TRACKER THAT BLENDS MULTIMODE MEASUREMENTS AND OPERATES IN A MULTITARGET, MULTIPATH ENVIORNMENT; (3) AN ADVANCED BTT GUIDANCE LAW WHICH ACCOMMODATES COUPLED DYNAMICS; AND (4) AN INTEGRATED MULTIMODE SENSOR DATA FUSION, ESTIMATION, GUIDANCE, CONTROL, AND WARHEAD FUZING SYSTEM DESIGN WHICH PRODUCES A ROBUST SYNERGISM AMONG VARIOUS SUBSYSTEMS AND IMPROVES TARGET INTERCEPT CAPABILITY IMMENSELY. A THREE PHASE RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED FOR WHICH THE ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP AN INTEGRATED SENSING, ESTIMATION, GUIDANCE AND CONTROL ENGINEERING DESIGN AND EVALUATION CAPABILITIES TO SUPPORT ADVANCED BTT MISSILE SYSTEM ENGINEERING EFFORTS. THE DELIVERABLE FOR PHASE I WILL BE AN INTEGRATED DESIGN METHODOLOGY CONSISTING OF ALL RELEVANT ALGORITHMS FOR THE SENSING, ESTIMATION, GUIDANCE AND CONTROL OF THE ADVANCED HAVE DASH II MISSILE. IN PHASE II, THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE DESIGN METHODOLGIES SHALL BE DEMONSTRATED VIA A DESIGN AND SIMULATION EFFORT ON A GENERIC HAVE DASH II MISSILE MODEL. ALSO IN PHASE II, THE INTEGRATION SENSING, ESTIMATION, GUIDANCE AND CONTROL DESIGN AND EVALUATION CAPABILITY WILL BE DEVELOPED. IN PHASE III, APPROPRIATE HARDWARE TOGETHER WITH THE CORRESPONDING VALIDATED SOFTWARE SHALL BE IMPLEMENTED SO AS TO DEMONSTRATE THE DESIGN CAPABILITY.
