Paper Abstract

Integrated optics and millimeter and microwave circuit technology has potential of providing the Army with precision guided munitions equipment that is more survivable, affordable, and transportable, and the opportunities for these improvements include close combat, air defense, and indirect fire weapons. Successful achievement of objectives for these applications is contingent on a strong supporting research program in electronic materials, and early identification of producibility problems for solution under the manufacturing methods and technology program. Manufacturing methods analyses have shown that this technology has the potential for reducing the fabrication costs of selected subsystems by eliminating some of the labor - intensive steps in the processes. Several pivotal subsystems have been identified for research and development efforts. Integrated optics and millimeter and microwave circuits is one of several emerging technologies that will provide the Army with self-contained munitions with a high degree of automatic operation for operation on the extended battlefield.
