Abstract:

New micro-electro-mechanical systems MEMS technologies are emerging in the research community as a low cost guidance solution for missiles. DARPA and AMCOM are currently investigating this emerging technology for weapon systems that should have positive impacts on the producibility, operations and support of future missile designs. It is essential to evaluate the U.S. manufacturing base to determine MEMS performance characteristics, design, trades, and manufacturing challenges to support research activities. AMCOM required engineering support in performing assessments on MEMS technologies. The Systems Management and Production Laboratory at The University of Alabama in Huntsville UAH Research institute RI was tasked to provide this engineering support and analytical capability.
