Abstract
THE RESPONSIVENESS OF HOMING MISSILES CAN BE LIMITED BY THE REQUIREMENT TO MAINTAIN ADEQUATE STABILITY CHARACTERISTICS ERRORS INTRODUCED BY RADOME BORESIGHT ERRORS. DURING THE BEYOND U.S. AIR-DEFENSIVE HOMING MISSILES WILL HAVE TO OPERATE IN AN INCREASINGLY MORE COMPLEX THREAT ENVIRONMENT. THE RADOME INDUCED PERFORMANCE LIMITATION WILL BECOME EVEN MORE RESTRICTIVE WHEN THE MISSILES ARE FORCED TO ENGAGE THREATS THAT HAVE GREAT SPEEDS AT HIGH ALTITUDES OR THAT ARE HIGHLY MANEUVERABLE AT LOW AND MODERATE ALTITUDES. THE PURSUIT ENGAGEMENT ERROR METHODOLOGY STUDY WILL DEVELOP ANALYTICAL METHODS THAT TRACE THE INFLUENCE OF THE SPATIAL RADOME BORESIGHT ERRORS ON HOMING PERFORMANCE, AND WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF SPECIFYING BORESIGHT ACCEPTABLE LEVEL OF MISSILE SYSTEM HOMING PERFORMANCE.
