Physics and Mathematics of AMD Design and Analysis

9.1 Interceptors and Flight Analysis

Modern air and missile defense (AMD) systems are required to encounter targets at ranges beyond the horizon using multiple sensors and assets for prosecuting the engagement. Search, detection, transition to track, fire control, midcourse guidance, and terminal homing, all parts of the air defense interceptor engagement, may be performed from different assets that will most likely be separated by hundreds of kilometers. These engagements are made possible by accomplishing an accurate location of each asset that is part of the engagement and passing data. The precise relative instantaneous location of assets can be accomplished using satellite-aided ...
