Research Institution
Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) Systems, in near-term deployment, offer a single kill opportunity per vehicle. The growing sophistication of threat countermeasures and target discernment are addressed by the Miniature Kill Vehicle (MKV) interceptor system. Enabling technologies including substantial reduction of kill vehicle size, mass and acquisition cost are required. For the proposed program, Fiber Materials Inc (FMI) supported by Aerojet will develop multi-directionally reinforced ceramic matrix composite (CMC) components for incorporation within the Aerojet-developed MKV DACS design. The MKV application creates challenging performance requirements associated with controlling pressurized hot gas with miniaturized components. The development effort will focus on the design of specialized CMC’s to meet requirements of the MKV Divert Thruster Assembly with direct applicability to the Attitude Control System (ACS).
