Triton Systems and our team proposes to develop a novel, lightweight fin to increase high-speed interceptor maneuverability. We will demonstrate through proven analytical techniques that our fin offers performance benefits over current state-of-the-art systems in the high hypersonic regime and that our design requires less torque to actuate, thus reducing demand on the actuation system. We will also show that our fin design can be compactly stowed against the airframe for tube launch applications and easily deployed upon launch exit.
