Abstract:

The Air Force Research Laboratory, Munitions Directorate, established the Powered-Low Cost Autonomous Attack System Advanced Technology Demonstrator program to demonstrate an affordable, miniature, autonomous, powered submunition. The submunition was to provide the ability to search, detect, identify, track, and destroy ground mobile targets in different weather and terrain. The Advanced Technology Demonstrator program was to demonstrate its technical feasibility and military utility for suppression of enemy air defense and missile attack capabilities. On December 15, 1998, a 36-month, 33.2 million cost share other transaction agreement was awarded to Lockheed Martin Corporation, Vought Systems, for development of the advanced technology demonstrator.
