Paper Abstract

Two capabilities that future generation cruise missiles may have include retargetting and damage assessment. This paper discusses three key areas required to implement these capabilities (missile-borne sensors, software and communications). It addresses the impact of a fixed versus a moveable or mobile target structure on the hardware and software needed, and provides a time estimate to implement these capabilities on cruise missiles. A brief discussion is also given on the extension of these techniques to (smaller) remotely piloted vehicles and ballistic missiles.
