Abstract
THE POTENTIAL FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF AN EFFECTIVE DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPON SYSTEM BY THE SOVIET UNION REQUIRES THAT THE VULNERABILITY OF U.S. ICBMS BY INVESTIGATED. THE ANALYTICAL STUDY PROPOSED HERE WILL REVIEW AND IDENTIFY CRITICAL COMPONENTS WITH POTENTIAL VULNERABILITIES TO DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS CONSISTING OF CONTINUOUS WAVE AND REP-PULSED LASERS, GIANT PULSE AND X-RAY LASERS AND NEUTRAL PARTICAL BEAMS. THE MISSILE COMPONENTS WILL BE RATED IN TERMS OF VULNERABILITY TO VARIOUS TYPES OF DIRECTED ENERGY BEAMS AND THE IMPACT ON MISSION PERFORMANCE. FIRST-ORDER DESIGN HARDENING TRADE-OFF ANALYSES WILL BE PERFORMED TO IDENTIFY PROMISING CONCEPTS. SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATIONS NEEDED TO ADDRESS UNANSWERED ISSUES WILL BE MADE.
