Air and Missile Defense Systems Engineering by Warren J. Boord, John B. Hoffman

By Warren J. Boord, John B. Hoffman

Air and Missile protection platforms Engineering fills a necessity for these looking perception into the layout tactics of the air and missile protection procedure engineering strategy. particularly geared toward coverage planners, engineers, researchers, and specialists, it offers a balanced method of negating a goal in either common and digital assault environments, and applies physics-based approach engineering to designing and constructing a balanced air and missile protection procedure. The publication offers an in-depth description of the missile protection layout improvement technique in addition to the underlying technical origin of air and missile security structures engineering.

Utilizing the authors’ a long time of mixed engineering adventure, this ebook considers new air missile safety process applied sciences and leading edge architectures that may be used to fulfill functionality necessities whereas additionally minimizing layout, improvement, and operational expenses over the lifecycle of a strive against approach. additionally it is the newest structures layout recommendations that may be utilized to new and present structures, and introduces structures engineering rules that may be mentioned and easily utilized to different missile security method scenarios.

Additionally, this book:

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

Air and Missile security structures Engineering provides an realizing of the physics of missile security structures and the most important functionality parameters that force the functions of those structures. This ebook serves as a necessary source for missile security engineers and different working towards pros, in addition to a educating reference for graduate-level courses.

Example text

Most defensive systems do not have the ability to engage multiple offensive missiles in azimuth simultaneously. This is due to several reasons. All offensive missiles in the raid will not be detected simultaneously due to radar search patterns and the stochastic nature of the detection process. Usually, weapons can only be launched one at a time at an interval determined by the missile launcher salvo time. 2 Air Defense Environment The environment can and will have significant performance impacts on a defense system.

Other techniques related to the offensive missile seeker involve tilting the seeker when it is not active and the use of a seeker radome constructed of a frequency selective ­surface (FSS). Tilting the seeker will reduce the in-band forward aspect radar cross section. In-band refers to the offensive missile seeker band, which may be different from the air defense radar band. This is essentially a simple shaping technique that directs most of the radar energy at bistatic angles to minimize the monostatic radar cross section.

This is simply not the metric that defines the trade space accurately. This comparison epitomizes the old saying—This is like comparing apples to oranges. The accurate cost-effectiveness trade space in engineering terms is 34 Air and Missile Defense Systems Engineering the cost ratio of expended engagement asset to the protected asset. This is an important distinction. The costs for the user nation to build, deploy, and expend the inbound missile are not a relevant factor. There is no correlation between how much it costs one nation to build a particular missile in terms of both real dollars and with respect to their gross domestic product and another nation to build and deploy the exact same missile and more importantly the AMD system necessary to defeat it.
