Abstract
THE TECHNICAL PROBLEM IS TO DEVELOP A COST EFFECTIVE PROJECTILE TRACKING AND COMMAND GUIDANCE SYSTEM THAT WILL IMPROVE THE ACCURACY AND INCREASE THE LETHAL RANGE OF MILITARY 105/120MM GUN SYSTEMS FIRING AGAINST ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY ARMORED, HIGH MOBILITY TARGETS. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PHASE I WORK ARE: 1) TO DEMONSTRATE THE POTENTIA FOR ACROSS RANGE ACCURACY OF 20 TO 40 CENTIMETERS AT 5,000 METERS OF A PROJECTILE BEACON TRACKING SENSOR, AND 2) DEMONSTRATE A FUNCTIONALLY COMPLETE BREADBOARD PROJECTILE COMMAND GUIDED ELECTRONICS SUBSYSTEM. THE MEETING OF THESE OBJECTIVES WILL PROVIDE THE FOUNDATION FOR A PHASE II FEASIBILITY DEMONSTRATION USING A TEST RANGE GUN FIRING EXPERIMENTAL COMMAND GUIDED PROJECTILE.
