Abstract
The objective of SBIR F051-160-0885 is to "demonstrate the merit and feasibility of a height-of-burst (HOB) fuze proximity sensor operating in an urban environment. Mustang Technology Group, LP has successfully demonstrated the FAST proximity sensor that meets the Air Force need for an affordable next generation height-of-burst (HOB) fuze sensor. The FAST concept offers many key system benefits including; (1) programmable 0.5 meter accuracy height-of-burst, (2) ground profiling, even with heavy foliage, (3) height-of-burst, near surface burst, and penetrator operating modes, (4) affordable design based on low cost commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components, and (5) meets production goal costs of $1500 for nose mount and $2000 for tail mount variants. This effort will consist of developing and implementing innovative algorithms that will enhance the capability of the existing FAST sensor so that it can meet the unique requirements associated with an urban environment. This will enable the key system benefits listed above to still be maintained, plus will provide a significant reduction in the collateral damage potential associated with dropping bombs in an urban environment.
