Not Available The Navy is improving its anti-air missile systems to defeat missiles and aircraft. Direct hits by one missile against another (body-to-body impact) is the primary defeat mechanism for some new concepts. Fast-running, analytical penetration and damage prediction methodologies are required to evaluate and optimize these new designs. Current methodologies do not adequately account for inertial and strength effects or for the temporal resolution of terminal ballistic loading and responses associated with impacts, between complex, spatially extended structures. The overall objective of this SBIR effort is to develop a fast-running, analytical/engineering methodology and computer code to predict high velocity, terminal ballistic interactions between complex, structures. The Phase I study objectives include, Identifying the loading and response characteristics associated with high speed impacts between complex structures, and a detailed plan for developing the objective prediction methodology which will include time-resolved interceptor and target geometry models and physics-based terminal ballistic loading and response models. A limited demonstration of the new methodology will also be accomplished during the Phase I study.
