Americas potential adversaries and non-state actors have increasing access to sophisticated weapons. Our warfighters need counters to these threats that turn the cost ratio in our favor.Affordable guided projectiles launched at high velocities from conventional powder guns can accomplish the direct fire missions that were previously reserved for expensive missile systems.However, several design challenges remain before deployment and proliferation of these gun launched projectile interceptors.To meet these challenges, Dynamic Structures and Materials (DSM) proposes leveraging its significant experience developing actuation systems for extreme environments to develop an actuator specifically designed for the next generation of small/medium caliber direct fire guided projectiles.The proposed actuator effort focuses on a development capable of substantially improving the maneuverability, survivability, and SWaP of direct fire guided projectiles.The Phase I statement of work includes an actuator design, fabrication, and test cycle to demonstrate feasibility early in the program, and allow the merit of the technology to be judged before moving on to more advanced Phase II development.A successful program will result in a CAS technology specifically designed and proven through rigorous testing to meet the difficult performance, packaging, and mission survival requirements needed for future direct fire guided projectiles.
