Paper Abstract

The considerations and tradeoffs for applying millimeter wave sensors to tactical missile guidance requirements are discussed. These sensors can operate in the active (radar) and passive (radiometric) modes for achieving a high degree of countermeasure immunity. The missile with its millimeter wave seeker is typically required to operate in an antonomous, lock-on-after-launch mode. This implies precise acquisition and track capabilities in the RF head as well as the signal processor such that competing clutter can be rejected and likely target candidates detected and classified.
