Abstract
THIS STUDY UTILIZES THE EXPERIENCE GAINED ON MPS, CSB, D2B PEACEKEEPER CONCEALMENT BASING STUDIES AND RECENT SMALL MISSILE CONCEALMENT STUDIES. SENSORS, DISCRIMINANTS AND PHYSICAL SIGNATURES APPLICABLE TO AN ICBM IN CONJUNCTION WITH A TRANSPORTER/LAUNCHER ARE SCREENED FOR APPLICABILITY TO BALLISTIC MISSILE DELIVERY SYSTEM SENSOR PLATFORMS. THREE VARIATIONS OF SENSOR PLATFORMS ARE EVALUATED AGAINST THE GROUND MOBILE TARGET WHILE PARKED AND MOBILE, IN FORRESTED AND OPEN TERRAIN, WITH THE MISSILE ECS, MGCS BOTH POWERED UP AND DORMANT. THIS COMBINATION OF PARAMETERS/SCENARIOS WILL YIELD A FEASIBILITY ASSESSMENT FOR SUCH SYSTEMS AND WILL DETERMINE A COUNTERMEASURE POTENTIAL FOR THOSE SENSOR, SIGNATURE, DISCRIMINANT COMBINATIONS THAT SURVIVE VARIOUS LEVELS OF SCREENING.
