Paper Abstract

The engagement of penaided, nuclear armed Ballistic Missile Re-entry Vehicles (RVs) by a Theatre Missile Defence (TMD) system requires the use of a robust and adaptive discrimination system to identify warheads from accompanying decoys and other penetration aids. TMD systems will be characterised by their electronic countermeasure environments, and short flight times of the ballistic missile threat. In such environments time is of the essence for TMD commanders to make effective decisions about the allocation of defence weapon systems. The identification and classification, i.e the discrimination, of warheads in a theatre environment is therefore especially stressing requiring detailed analysis and quantification.
