ABSTRACT: The Advanced Technology & Research (ATR) response to SBIR solicitation AF121-098 is discussed; the title is:"Guided Munition Delivery Accuracy Methodology for Weaponeering Against Moving Targets (GuMDAM-AMT)". The solicitation addresses the extension of JMEMS weaponeering methodology to the problem of Air-to-Ground (ATG) weapons going against moving targets. The end objective is to determine the best Standard Conventional Loads (SC) for close air support missions for the moving target scenarios. The goal is to permit the same type of automated and semi-automated planning for moving target scenarios as is currently used against stationary targets. The Phase I objectives are: (a) define the target sets, (b) develop methodology and parameter requirements to handle moving targets, (c) construct a roadmap for Phase I and Phase II, and (d) generate a final report. The proposal discusses how ATR plans to address the Phase I objectives. Target motion will affect factors such as detection and acquisition by a seeker and this dependence must be addressed. Motion will also affect the Target Location Error (TLE) and characterizing this will be a major part of the Phase I effort. BENEFIT: The end product for this program will be a software product that provides the best standard conventional loads for air craft involved in close ground support against moving targets. A successful Phase II effort would lead to a Phase III effort where the product is integrated into JWS. This would potentially expand ATR"s customer base; providing a new product area.
