During our Phase I SBIR program for topic MDA-073-019, Hypervelocity Intercept Modeling with First-Principle, Physics Based Tools, we showed the utility of First-Principle Codes (FPC), specifically Velodyne, in modeling missile intercept phenomenology.In addition, we identified a path toward the development of an engineering-level code built upon the foundation of FPC results.Here, we propose a path toward realizing expanded capability of the Velodyne Intercept Debris Engagement interpOlator (VIDEO), our engineering-level intercept debris prediction code.We intend to expand the capabilities of this tool, specifically: 1) the application to more massive interceptors, 2) the quantification of uncertainty in the debris model predictions to support Monte-Carlo analyses, and 3) the initial development of a simulation framework for debris-related performance assessments.Approved for Public Release 14-MDA-7739 (18 March 14).
