Abstract
THE GUIDANCE AND SURVEILLLANCE ACCURACIES OF ADVANCED AIR FORCE REENTRY SYSTEMS DEPEND ON ANTENNA WINDOW SHAPE CHANGE (OR ABLATION) AT THE TIME OF THE GUIDANCE UPDATE OR SURVEILLANCE FUNCTION. GUIDANCE UPDATE AND SURVEILLANCE OCCUR IN ALTITUDE REGIMES WHERE PRECURSOR DUST FIELDS CAN EXIST. DUST EROSION OF THE WINDOW WILL CAUSE BORESIGHT ERRORS AND SUBSEQUENT SYSTEM INACCURACIES. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO ESTABLISH THE MAGNITUDE OF THE BORESIGHT ERROR INDUCED BY PRECURSOR DUST FIELDS.
