Advanced Conventional Armaments Technology Panel Report Supplement: Cannon and Rocket Parametric Tradeoff Analyses
Technical rept. Jun-Jul 1988
SYSTEM PLANNING CORP ARLINGTON VA
Pagination or Media Count:
An Advanced Conventional Armaments Panel was formed as part of a DARPA-sponsored assessment of the utility of electric guns in the fire support, anti-armor, and air defense mission areas. This panel was assembled and tasked to focus on identifying the near and intermediate-term capabilities that advanced conventional nonelectric gun technologies could offer in each of the above mission areas. This supplemental report contains first order conventional launch system parametric tradeoffs in the form of carpet plots, which present the performance capabilities of cannon and rocket systems. The utility of these tradeoff relationships is that they permit both the non-electric and electric gun and projectile designers to consider the most cost effective approach to satisfying their mission area requirements. This report also contains a survey of existing system performance parameters, and two projectile point designs. Long range artillery cannons and rockets, Anti-tank guns, Interior ballistics, Trajectories, Payload.
