Abstract
THE PROPOSED EFFORT ADDRESSES AN EXTENSION OF THE INERTIAL GUIDANCE TEST DEMONSTRATION (IGTD) PROGRAM, WHICH CONSISTS OF THE INTEGRATION OF A LOW COST INERTIAL GUIDANCE UNIT WITH A MK-82 BOMB, TO INCLUDE A TERMINAL SEEKER. THE STUDY FOCUSES ON THE SYNERGISM BETWEEN INERTIAL GUIDANCE AND TERMINAL GUIDANCE, PARTICULARLY THE REDUCTION IN SEARCH AREA AND RANGE-TO-TARGET REQUIREMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH TERMINAL SENSOR ACQUISITION. THE INVESTIGATION ALSO TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE ADVENT OF THE GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM, TO BE AVAILABLE IN AIR FORCE LAUNCH AIRCRAFT IN THE 1990S. THE PRINCIPAL STUDY TASKS ARE THE FOLLOWING: IDENTIFICATION OF TARGETS; SELECTION OF DELIVERY VEHICLE(S) AND ATTACK MODES; SELECTION OF TERMINAL GUIDANCE CONCEPTS AND DEFINITION OF COSTS; PERFORMANCE/COST ANALYSES, AND PHASE II PLANNING.
