Abstract:

Summary AIT is a technology testbed program to develop component technologies that could be applied to current acquisition programs as part of a P31 program. The payoffs of AIT technology are substantial providing technical solutions to theater missile defense interceptor capabilities for contingencies and against advanced threats not currently addressed by the TMD systems programs and reducing technical risks and costs in support of current acquisition programs through direct technology insertions. To date, AIT has made excellent progress in developing component and subsystem technologies that support high velocity interceptors. MT is continuing to implement its strategy of developing and validating components and integrated subsystems through extensive ground testing and simulation activities and then providing the technologies for infusion into multi-service system applications.
