Research Institution
INTUITIVE proposes to identify, develop, and demonstrate Innovative Ignition System Technologies (I2ST) for Advanced Tactical Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs), that can be utilized with advanced Sidewinder, AMRAAM, HARM, and other Navy/DoD missile system applications. These ignition system technologies must be capable of meeting the unique requirements of advanced, heavily-loaded, end-burning, multiple-pulse tactical solid rocket motors in the 5-10 inch diameter range. Development of synergistic ignition system concepts, ballistic modeling, and supporting trade studies will be required that lead to down-select of optimal technologies capable of being integrated into a baseline air-launched missile system. The proposed Phase I effort will develop concepts for such technologies, conduct trade studies, ballistics modeling, and feasibility studies and select the most promising technologies for demonstration during a Phase II effort. Our Phase I effort will culminate with a detailed Phase II Plan. A proposed Phase I Option will enable further documentation of the conceptual design(s), conduct of engineering breadboard/technology verification tests, and preparation of the drawings/specifications necessary for Phase II prototype functional demonstrations. Our Phase I efforts will concentrate on ignition system technologies meeting the full requirements of MIL-STD-1901A, MIL-STD-2105C, MIL-STD-810F, and other applicable standards. Other promising advanced or emerging technologies may also be addressed.
