By Warren J. Boord, John B. Hoffman

Air and Missile safeguard platforms Engineering fills a necessity for these looking perception into the layout systems of the air and missile safeguard procedure engineering approach. in particular aimed toward coverage planners, engineers, researchers, and experts, it offers a balanced method of negating a objective in either typical and digital assault environments, and applies physics-based approach engineering to designing and constructing a balanced air and missile protection process. The ebook presents an in-depth description of the missile safeguard layout improvement approach in addition to the underlying technical starting place of air and missile safeguard platforms engineering.

Utilizing the authors’ decades of mixed engineering event, this booklet considers new air missile safety approach applied sciences and leading edge architectures that may be used to fulfill functionality standards whereas additionally minimizing layout, improvement, and operational bills over the lifecycle of a wrestle approach. it is also the most recent platforms layout recommendations that may be utilized to new and latest structures, and introduces structures engineering rules that may be mentioned and quite simply utilized to different missile safeguard approach scenarios.

Additionally, this book:

  • Focuses on shipborne missile safety platforms that supply their very own send safeguard opposed to missiles and security of alternative within reach ships
  • Emphasizes the research and exchange area linked to generating a balanced air and missile protection approach (AMDS)
  • Addresses the significance of architectures and technologies
  • Traces specifications improvement via method functionality tradeoffs
  • Includes result of radar and missile functionality tradeoffs in a practical environment

Air and Missile safeguard platforms Engineering

provides an realizing of the physics of missile security structures and the main functionality parameters that force the functions of those platforms. This ebook serves as a invaluable source for missile protection engineers and different practising pros, in addition to a educating reference for graduate-level courses.

Sample text

If the offensive missile is inbound at Mach 3 and detected at the same range of 56 km or 30 nm, how much is the engagement timeline reduced for the same missile? 45 nm. 10 nm. 1 nm). 2 seconds after the first attempt. 16 seconds. Finally, if the offensive missile is inbound at Mach 1 and a Mach 3 missile interceptor is employed, how does the scenario change? 15 nm when the first missile is launched. 10 nm after a missile flyout time of 38 seconds. Now, the 3-to-1-speed mismatch increases the first intercept range by 13 km or 7 nm relative to the first example.

In general, smaller and lighter weight radars can be placed at higher locations on a ship. Another consideration for the placement of ship-borne radars is placing the radar antenna(s) to minimize obstruction zones, particularly at lower elevation angles. Radar cross-section reduction can be used to delay radar detection. In clear environments, the radar detection range is proportional to 1/r4 where r is radar slant ranges. This means that the radar must be 16 times (12 dB) more powerful to double the detection range against a fixed radar cross-sectional target.

Now, the 3-to-1-speed mismatch increases the first intercept range by 13 km or 7 nm relative to the first example. 8 seconds after the first attempt. 76 seconds. Clearly, mismatches in speed can be used to the advantage of the defensive or offensive weapon. The key is to stay technologically ahead of the offensive missile by developing higher speed weapons. The ultimate weapon in terms of speed is a directed energy weapon (DEW). DEWs, such as a high-power laser or a high-power microwave beam, travel at the speed of light.
