Abstract
Ballistic missile threats include the potential for complex target scenes including countermeasures and debris in addition to lethal objects. In order to defend against this threat, the Ballistics Missile Defense System (BMDS) has been developed to intercept the targets. The construct of using multiple interceptors on a single target is both costly and taxing on the BMDS command control. However, implementation of Multi-Object Kill Vehicles (MOKVs) on a single interceptor is a force multiplier with the potential to overcome the difficult countermeasure challenges. The LoadPath Multiple Object Deployment System (MODS) is an advanced mechanism that will enable implementation of reliable restraint and deployment of multiple Kill Vehicle (KV) payloads on a single interceptor in a precise, predictable, and repeatable manner. Unlike existing systems utilizing a single KV launched as necessary, our approach is designed for multiple KVs aboard a single interceptor that will counter demanding target scenes and ballistic missile threats. MODS provides a fast-acting, compact, integrated design that addresses a wide range of operational engagement scenarios. Its modular, resettable design allows easy implementation with a variety of missile defense boosters, as well as significantly improving the assembly, integration, test, and flight operations.
