Abstract
This Phase II SBIR study will improve the lethality of future munitions, such as the Small Diameter Bomb (SDB-II), by offering a tightly coupled guidance and fuzing algorithm set using information about the weapon, target, and vulnerability of the target. The algorithm set features the use of weapon approach angles to optimize lethality, real-time methods for optimal trajectory shaping, and real-time methods for computing sub-optimal approaches that are still lethal if the weapon is kinematically limited. The algorithm set will improve weapon performance by optimizing lethality instead of focusing on minimizing miss distance.
