Abstract:

The objective of the proposed Phase II program is to leverage existing first-principle physics-based codes and improve our ability to predict lethality outcomes for hypervelocity missile intercepts using our Velodyne code. In particular, we will address deficiencies in our high explosive (HE) reaction modeling. The enhanced modeling capability will allow us to address specific OTA issues related to missile intercept lethality (311) and assess interceptor effectiveness against emerging threats. Beyond HE modeling we will address validation of the response of complex targets that include important engineering features such as bolted flanges and welded joints, and the resulting effects on lethality predictions. Once vetting of our enhanced reactive material model is included within the Velodyne tool, the focus will shift to inclusion of this improved lethality M & S capability into the MDA simulation architecture. In particular, we will look to improve the accuracy of lethality estimation for both the digital and real-time hardware-in-the-loop simulation frameworks.
