Abstract
The primary purpose of this proposal is to study and demonstrate the feasibility of building a fast-running physics based simulation of a warhead that dispenses several independent submunitions from the warhead using a Windows based PC to host the simulation. In the simulation system to be designed, each submunition will "guide" itself independently to a representative above ground (or hard) target. The collection of dispensed submunitions will penetrate into dispersed target void spaces in the target model, which will allow each submunition to interact with target subcomponents such as barrels, computers, etc. To couple the evolving forces and moments on objects in the simulation, the simulation system must be designed to employ a basic 6-DOF integrator that will accurately and efficiently estimate the new state of multiple colliding, interacting objects.
