Abstract
THE FUNDAMENTAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSED EFFORT ARE TO SPECIFY A TRANSFER ALIGNMENT ALGORITHM APPROPRIATE FOR A HYPERSONIC WEAPON SYSTEM, AND TO DEFINE A SIMULATION APPROPRIATE FOR EVALUATION OF THE PROPOSED ALGORITHM. IN ACHIEVING THESE OBJECTIVES, CURRENT TRANSFER ALIGNMENT APPROACHES MUST FIRST BE EXAMINED FOR POSSIBLE DIRECT APPLICATION IN THE HYPERSONIC ENVIRONMENT, WITH THEIR POTENTIALDEFICIENCIES AND/OR INADEQUACY IDENTIFIED. A SET OF REQUIREMENTS FOR HYPERSONIC WEAPON TRANSFER ALIGNMENT WILL BE SPECIFIED AS PART OF THIS EFFORT. A TRANSFER ANALYSIS WILL BE COMPLETED. FINALLY, A MORE EXTENSIVE MONTE CARLO SIMULATION WILL BE DEFINED FOR FURTHER ALGORITHM EVALUATIONS TO BE PERFORMED IN PHASE II. THIS SIMULATION CAN BE ADAPTED FROM TAU CORPORATION'S INTEGRATED NAVIGATION SYSTEM SIMULATION.
