Abstract
SEEKER STABILIZATION VIBRATION SUPPRESSION ELECTRO-ACTIVE MATERIALS PROPULSION RESEARCH WILL USE ITS MINIATURE "FERRO-MAGNETIC" ACTUATOR EFFORTD CAN BE USED TO CREATE A "SEEKER ANTI-MOTION SYSTEM". THIS TECHNOLOGY TAKES AN AGGRESSIVE APPROACH TOWARD "INTELLIGENTLY" MANAGING THE SEEKER DYNAMIC RESPONSE TO INDUCED MOTION BY ISOLATING IT "DYNAMICALLY" FROM THE REAMINDER OF THE AIRFRAME USING ELECTRO-ACTIVE STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS. THIS "DYNAMIC ISOLATION" WILL MINIMIZE TARGET INACCURACIES DUE TO SEEKER/STRUCTURE INTERACTIONS AND PERMIT CONTINUOUS OPERATION OF THE SEEKER AT ITS DESIGN LIMITS; THUS INCREASING KKV LETHALITY. APPLICATIONS INCLUDE TACTICAL MISSILE, RECONNAISSANCE POD, SATELLITE OR UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLE.
