Abstract:

Combat test and training ranges require simulated weapons firings for safety. For realism, these simulated firings must be computed in real time. This report investigates the feasibility of real-time simulation of self-guided weapons. The active weapon life is broken into five phases starting with the attacker and target trajectories before launch, and ending with target damage assessment. Jamming is considered. It is concluded by a comparison of these phases with 70 references that little analytical effort is required 1974 to describe the areas of weapons thrust, aerodynamics, stability, and trajectories for successful real-time computer simulation. Moderate effort is required to successfully describe jamming interactions with weapons guidance and, extensive efforts are required to successfully describe weapons blast and fragment effects, and to accurately assess target damages.
