Abstract:

SDI technologies may affect the concepts of weapons systems and reshape the battlefields of the future. In this research as few of the SDI systems were analyzed and modeled mathematically. The different models were gathered in a software package that may be run on a personal computer. The intention was to produce a handy tool for preliminary studies and designs. The following topics are covered aerodynamic design of hypervelocity projectiles, flight simulation of hypervelocity projectiles, railgun simulation, ground track of orbits, guidance and homing. A few case studies were analyzed to suggest and demonstrate potential use of these models. Author
