This Note describes in mathematical terms the dynamic geometry between a constellation of satellites deployed for ballistic missile defense (BMD) and the missiles the satellites are engaging. Formulas, readily translatable into computer code, are given for such engagement parameters as slant range, closing velocity, and line-of-sight incidence angle in terms of satellite and missile position and v......

To examine the capabilities satellites can bring to bear in a theater missile defense (TMD) environment, the authors describe a methodology, based on Kalman filtering, for the estimation and prediction of ballistic missile trajectories and then apply the methodology to a notional theater ballistic missile. One useful application is in estimating the uncertainty associated with the location of a mi......

A game-theoretic approach to determining the best strategy for both the attacker and the defender in a situation in which an ICBM plunges toward a target defended by one or more AICBM missiles. The problem treated is essentially that of determining the altitude at which the defender should detonate his AICBM warhead and at which the attacker should detonate his ICBM warhead. The problem depends on......

A continuation of RM-1741, which considered the optimal allocation of missiles against a given target system, assuming that dummy missiles are allowable. The present study deals with the same problem, first under the assumption that dummy missiles are to be used, and second under the assumption that the amount of fissile material available is limited. An attempt is made to present a computational ......

Publisher: DIANE PublishingPublished Time: DIANE PublishingPages: 111The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) has spent about $56 billion and will spend about $50 billion more through 2013 to develop a Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). This report assesses the annual progress MDA made in developing the BMDS as well as improvements in accountability and transparency in agency operations, and managem......

A description of the nuclear blast loading and response of some rail transport equipment that might be typical of that in a mobile rail ballistic missile system. The response of the rail vehicles is determined for several levels of blast "hardening," and the results are presented in terms of critical overpressures.......
