Vadum will develop an algorithm to generate and optimize Hypervelocity Projectile (HVP) trajectories as both an analysis and tactical battle management tool. The Optimal Advanced HVP Trajectory System (OATHS) will respond to threat track updates as they are received from upstream processing elements and will be capable of optimizing trajectories for a variety of different threat types with different kinematic profiles. The OATHS approach will optimize trajectories based on an engagement success metric which will be correlated to Probability of Kill for a given threat.
