Abstract:

This note represents an extension of previous work on radar homing interceptors to include effects of multiple sensor interactions and the use of aimed warheads to compensate for large guidance miss-distances. Using simple graphical techniques, we treat combinations of data from handover, homing and fuzing sensors. We also consider various types of warheads including isotropic, aimed in one angle, fully aimable and fully aimable and chokable. Sensors are characterized by their accuracy and acquisition range interceptors by their maneuver capability and response time and warheads by their reach, coverage and response time. We consider some sample intercept engagements and discuss their component requirements.
