  3. State-Vector Density Functional (SVDF) Method for Kill Assessment

    SBC: FREENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA16001

    Measuring and characterizing the post-intercept state of a missile intercept event is critical for determination of interceptor lethality and kill assessments (KA). A number of sensors (including radar and spectral and imaging sensors) have been used to characterize these events. FreEnt proposes an innovative approach to KA based on mathematical formalisms successfully employed in atomic and molec ...
