AbstractGloyer-Taylor Laboratories has identified a suite of technologies that can provide a tactical missile with a high degree of energy management capability and proposes to demonstrate these technologies by developing the AVATAR (Adaptive VAriable Trajectory Attack and Reconnaissance) Multi-role Morphing Missile. The 9-inch diameter by 13-foot long AVATAR missile is sized to be air launched from nearly any combat aircraft, including F/A-22, F-35, F-15, F-16, UCAS and bomber, using the BRU-61/A pneumatic carriage, or ground launched from the MLRS using the standard M26/M31 tubes. AVATAR provides long range precision strike capability, thereby extending the reach of existing combat systems. AVATAR technologies include the safe, non-toxi, long-term storable, high-performance GTV monopropellant, the efficient Highly Integrated Modular Structure (HIMS), and a revolutionary morphing structure. To manage the combustion stability risk, the breakthrough Universal Combustion Device Stability (UCDS) process will be used. UCDS accurately predicts the stability characteristics of the engine at any throttle setting and provides the physical insight needed to mitigate potential instability issues. The AVATAR technologies provide enhanced energy management capabilities, while addressing key historical impediments.
