Abstract:

THE OVERALL GOAL OF PHASE I AND PHASE II IS TO DEVELOP SOFTWARE THAT WILL FIND THE OPTIMAL SIZE AND SHAPE OF MISSILE DESIGNS ACCORDING TO USER DEFINED DESIGN CRITERIA. PHASE I WILL SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF MISSILE SHAPE DESIGN OPTIMIZATION BY COMBINING A GEOMETRIC MODELER, OPTIMIZATION SOFTWARE, AND FREE-FORM DEFORMATION WITH AN ANALYSIS MODULE. THE PHASE I ANALYSIS MODULE WILL CONTAIN AERODYNAMICS, RADAR CROSS-SECTION, AND INTERNAL COMPONENT GEOMETRIC CONSTRAINTS. THE SOFTWARE WILL HELP THE USER FIND AN OPTIMAL MISSILE AERODYNAMICS/RCS SHAPE (E.G. MAXIMUM LIFT TO DRAG RATIO, OR MINIMUM OBSERVABILITY, ETC.) WITH INTERNAL COMPONENTS INSIDE THE MISSILE SHAPE AND WHILE SATISFYING DESIGN CONSTRAINTS (E.G. LIMITS ON SURFACE AREA, VOLUME, PRESSURE, LENGTH, WIDTH, ETC.). PHASE II WILL ENHANCE THE DESIGN PACKAGE BY INCLUDING OTHER ANALYSIS CODES (I.E. STRUCTURAL, ABLATION, AEROHEAT, INTERNAL COMPONENT PACKAGING, STABILITY, TRAJECTORY, ECT.) NECESSARY FOR MISSILE DESIGN SYNTHESIS.
