Abstract:

Complete design considerations for the ARGMA 8,000-kw plasma facility are reviewed. Both facility requirements and performance characteristics are discussed for typical minimum energy ICBM and IRBM reentry trajectories. Calculated stagnation conditions are shown to be in the realm of modem plasma arc technology. Capability of the installed electric generation system is shown to be adequate to meet requirements.
