Abstract
THIS IS AN EFFORT TO DESIGN, FABRICATE AND ELECTRONICALLY TEST A BREADBOARD MODEL OF A FUZING SYSTEM WHICH CAN ACCURATELY DETERMINE THE DEPTH OF PENETRATION BY A KINETIC DELIVERY OF WEAPON WARHEAD INTO A HARD TARGET OVER A VARIETY OF IMPACT ANGLES AND BALLISTIC IMPACT. IT IS TARGET PROGRAMMED BEFORE LAUNCH, COMMAND ARMED AND CONTROLS THE WARHEAD BURST POINT AS A FUNCTION OF A PREPROGRAMMED AND TARGET ENVIRONMENTAL INPUTS. THIS DESIGN HAS A UNIQUE FEATURE OF FILTERING TO A GREAT EXTENT THE NOISE IN THE SENSOR OUTPUT DUE TO STRUCTURAL RINGING OF THE PROJECTILE CASING, SENSOR NATURAL FREQUENCY OR VARIATION IN BARRIER DENSITY. DURING THE FIRST PHASE THE UNIT WILL BE SUBJECTED TO SIMULATED IMPACT ENVIRONMENT.
