Abstract:

AN ECONOMICAL FRAGMENT LAUNCH SYSTEM IS NEEDED TO DUPLICATE WARHEAD FRAGMENT/AIR TARGET ENCOUNTER CONDITIONS ASSOCIATED WITH MODERN AIR TO AIR COMBAT. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO PROVIDE A DETAILED CONCEPTUAL DESIGN, INCLUDING BUILDING AND OPERATING COST ESTIMATES, FOR A LAUNCH SYSTEM CAPABLE OF PROJECTING METALLIC, PARALLELEPIPED FRAGMENTS WITH WEIGHTS IN THE RANGE OF 30-250 GRAINS (1.9-16.2 GRAMS) TO SPEEDS IN THE RANGE OF 5000-15000 FT/SEC (1.5-4.6 KM/SEC). THE LAUNCH SYSTEM WILL INCLUDE TECHNIQUES TO CONTROL IMPACT ORIENTATION AND WILL BE DESIGNED FOR AN OPERATING EFFICIENCY OF AT LEAST 2 SHOTS PER DAY FOR TESTS INVOLVING STANDARD IMPACT RESEARCH INSTRUMENTATION. SIZE AND POWER REQUIREMENTS WILL BE MINIMIZED. THE FEASIBILITY AND SYSTEM COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH LAUNCHING FRAGMENTS TO SPEEDS AS HIGH AS 20000 FT/SEC (6.1 KM/SEC) AND WITH WEIGHTS UP TO 500 GRAINS (32.4 GRAMS) WILL ALSO BE DETERMINED.
