Abstract:

Smart munitions deliver warfighter advantages in effective defeat of critical targets, the reduction of logistics burdens, and total force survivability. Brilliant munitions, delivered by Army, Navy, Marine, and Air Force platforms offer further warfighter advantages and shifts some target attack processes from delivery platforms to the munition munitions centrality. This paper addresses the basis for current smart and brilliant munitions programs. The spectrum of target recognition capabilities is presented as a roadmap towards munitions centrality. Based on key battlefield targets, the benefits of brilliant munitions are shown through selected computer scenarios. Finally, an approach to managing the technology is offered.
