Abstract
TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C. THE CURRENT TLAM-C USES A TERRAIN MAPPING RADAR ALTIMETER AND CORRELATES THE SENSED AREA AT KEY WAYPOINTS WITH A STORED DIGITAL REPRESENTATION OF THE TERRAIN AREA AT THE WAYPOINTS TO PROVIDE MID-COURSE AND TERMINAL GUIDANCE CORRECTION TO THE INERTIAL NAVIGATION SYSTEM. CRITICAL HIGH VALUE TARGETS FOR THE CONVENTIONAL WARHEAD WEAPON INCLUDE BOTH STATIONARY AND LAND-MOBILE TARGETS. THE EXISTING TERMINAL SYSTEM IS EFFECTIVE AGAINST STATIONARY OR NEAR-STATIONARY TARGETS IN AN AREA BOMBARDMENT SENSE PROVIDED A SUFFICIENTLY UNIQUE (HIGH CORRELATION OF FEATURES) TERMINAL SCENE IS AVAILABLE FOR THEATRE MISSION PLANNING. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDY WILL BE TO PROVIDE A QUANTITATIVE COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF TERMINAL HOMING INCORPORATINGFORWARD-LOOKING SENSORS IN THE TLAM-C AS A FUNCTION OF THE TYPE SENSOR, REPRESENTATIVE TARGET CHARACTERISTICS AND IMPROVED TERMINAL GUIDANCE ALGORITHMS. THESE WOULD THEN BE TRANSFORMED TO MISSION PLANNING REQUIREMENTS, TARGETING ASSETS NECESSARY AND ACHIEVABLE QUICK RESPONSE TIME IN TARGETING AND RE-TARGETING IN BOTH A TACTICAL JAM-FREE AND COUNTER-MEASURES ENVIRONMENT IN THE TARGET AREA. THE STUDY IS ENVISIONED AS A SIX MONTH EFFORT CONSISTING OF THREE PHASES - A LITERATURE REVIEW, COORDINATION AND INITIAL ANALYSIS OF THE PROBLEM TO BOUND THE STUDY REQUIREMENTS WITH JCMP (START TO 2 MOS), A SYNTHESIS OF THE EVALUATIVE COMPARISON MODEL (1ST TO 4TH MO) AND THE COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS (2ND TO 6TH MO) CULMINATING IN A FINAL REPORT.
