Abstract:

The objective of the engineering design study of the close air support weapon CASW was to provide design considerations for the new close air support missile CASM. The derivation of the missile was undertaken based on the modification of an existing missile. This study incorporates operational requirement and warhead effectiveness studies for various close air support targets leading to warhead and launch envelope recommendations. A thorough analysis of the system performance and terminal accuracy was conducted. Missile simulation models and a system description, including missile, launcher, avionics, and aerospace ground equipment AGE are provided.
