  • Challenges facing developers of systems for water impact scoring of advanced weapons

    Testing of advanced "smart" weapons being developed by the Army, Navy, and Air Force are presenting an interesting challenge to test designers. Many of these weapons have ranges in excess of the maximum range of existing test ranges. Several examples exist of gun fired weapons currently under development for the Army and Navy with maximum ranges greater than 75 miles. Additionally, unlike existing artillery and naval guns, these weapons include on board guidance packages. These must be evaluated as a part of their testing. This represents a significant departure from traditional gun fired weapons which contain no guidance in the weapon itself. The accuracy of a traditional weapon is determined entirely by the accuracy with which the gun is aimed and the inherent variables in the fall of shot. Additionally these new weapons will be significantly more costly than traditional gun fired weapons. The Air Force is also developing many extended range weapons that exceed the range of existing test ranges. The above factors have led to the need to test these weapons to full range and provide for a "soft impact" such that the test article can be recovered for post-test analysis. NUWC Division, Newport has recognized this need. NUWC has performed preliminary investigations into the feasibility of testing these weapons by firing them into relatively shallow water. Advanced signal processing and localization algorithms could determine the point of impact. These algorithms must detect and process the acoustic signature generated by the impact. These studies have demonstrated that the intact recovery by divers of gun fired weapons from water depths less than 100 feet is feasible. Over the last 25 years NUWC has demonstrated the feasibility of accurately determining the point of impact acoustically for a wide variety of weapons including both missiles and guns. All of these previous projects however have focussed on impacts occurring in deep water. Typical water depths have been in excess of 1000 feet. A preliminary test conducted several years ago off of Wallops Island Maryland in shallow water demonstrated that the deep water algorithms previously developed are not directly applicable to impact scoring in shallow water. As a result of these tests NUWC has initiated the Soft Impact Location Capability (SILC) project to develop suitable algorithms for acoustically scoring impacts in shallow water. This paper presents an overview of past impact scoring efforts and discusses the objectives, plans, and status of the SILC project. Concepts for applying this technology to future T&E and Training requirements are also discussed.

  • Manufacturing optimization for improved AT crystal aging: preliminary results

    The military's focus on affordable "smart weapons" using GPS has put new emphasis on an age old problem: Is it possible to control or bound the aging of oscillators? These new weapons are expected to be in storage for up to 20 years with minimal performance degradation regarding initial acquisition of the GPS signal used for primary navigation. Advances in signal processing are just beginning to help address the frequency drift problem, but jamming and other considerations still make it advantageous to minimize long term aging of the GPS frequency standard. The focus of this study is intended to investigate tailored manufacturing processes to optimise long term storage of any product using GPS such as PGM weapons, at an affordable cost. An equally important consideration is to evaluate how excursions to cold temperatures affect the preaging process and if possible characterize these effects for one distinct manufacturing process.

  • Design, fabrication and testing of coplanar waveguide transmission lines for use in RF MEMS switches

    The purpose of the paper is to discuss the design, fabrication, and testing of a set of coplanar waveguide (CPW) transmission lines being developed for use in RF MEMS (radio frequency microelectromechanical systems) with possible applications in seeker systems used in smart weapons. The waveguides were developed by the Weapon Sciences Directorate of the US Army Aviation and Missile Command, Aviation and Missile, Research, Development and Engineering Center and tested by the RF Technology Branch of the Applied Sensors, Guidance, and Electronics Directorate.

  • Breaking the millimeter-wave frequency barrier

    It is predicted that antimonide-barrier HEMTs (high electron mobility transistors) with 100% InAs channels will exhibit terahertz maximum operating frequencies and significantly lower noise figures for the same dimensions. Device structures with n-AlSb barriers and undoped InAs channels have been grown by molecular beam epitaxy on GaAs and InP substrates. The larger saturated drift velocity of InAs and less scattering than InGaAs provides higher cutoff frequency and lower noise figure. The advantage is much greater than can be achieved by shrinking dimensions and/or parasitic losses of PM InP devices. Potential applications include the next generation of advanced MMICs (monolithic microwave integrated circuits) for use in smart weapons, deep space communication, earth sensing, and imaging systems operating at deep mm- wave and sub-mm-wavelengths.<<ETX>>

  • Parallel algebraic logic (PAL): a dual use technology

    Addresses an emerging technology that is applicable to biomedical digital imagery in general. The author specifically addresses mammography as a first application. Researchers in every major university medical center and several national laboratories are experimenting with diagnostic methods in digital mammography that show promise for earlier detection. In most cases, these advanced methods are computationally intensive. Without the aid of advanced, real-time, computing technology such methods are not suitable for a screening system. What is needed is a hardware and software combination that is capable of evaluating all of these promising methodologies. Theoretical studies at the Armament Directorate have shown that the high-speed computing technology being developed for smart weapons may be able to meet the challenge.

  • Space-variant active vision and visually guided robotics: design and construction of a high-performance miniature vehicle

    In this paper, the design and implementation of a miniature visually guided robot vehicle are described. The design principle underlying this vehicle, which is called CORTEX-II, is the space-variant visual architecture of visual cortex. This allows a wide visual field and high resolution to be maintained in a small and relatively inexpensive system. With a total weight of under twenty kg and size of about .5 meters, CORTEX-II incorporates a three degree of freedom active vision system (pan, tilt and zoom) mounted on a 1 degree of freedom "neck", 160 Mflops (loosely coupled array of four TI320C40 parallel DSP's) and 48 megabytes of memory. Topics discussed here are modification of a stock RC vehicle platform, integration of the parallel DSP platform, active vision system, battery and power systems, communications, and a programming environment for development of the real-time parallel tasks that is transparently portable between simulation and robot run time contexts. Potential applications for systems of this type include traffic monitoring, autonomous driving research, security and surveillance, space-exploration, smart weapons systems, and other application domains in which small, low-cost, high performance visually guided robots are required.

  • Conference banquet

    The Internet of Things is creeping into ever more critical areas of our lives. From drug pumps to aircraft, connected cars and even smart weapons - there are few products coming off the production line today which don't have an added element of `intelligence' and connectivity. There's just one problem: they are fundamentally flawed. And in this brave new world, that could result not just in data theft and privacy challenges but actual loss of life. In this keynote, prpl Foundation president Art Swift will present some high profile IoT security flaws which have already emerged, and pick out the common attack patterns linking them all. He'll go on to make the case for a new, hardware backed approach which can overcome these challenges by engineering security into these embedded devices from the ground up. You will learn how open source and interoperable standards can address serious IoT security flaws thanks to SoC virtualization and security through separation.

  • Biomedical application of high-resolution infrared and parallel processing technologies

    The Armament Directorate is developing a high-resolution infrared focal plane array and massively parallel image processor for smart weapons technology. This paper addresses the emergent applicability of these technologies to biomedical digital imagery in general. The authors specifically address this infrared data acquisition and processing combination for its potential application in the areas of intervention surgery, pathology, thermography, and anesthesiology. Researchers in major university medical centers and several national laboratories are experimenting with diagnostic methods involving digital infrared systems. In many cases, these advanced methods are computationally intensive. Without the aid of advanced, real-time, computing technology such methods are not suitable for real-time operative procedures. A hardware and software combination capable of evaluating all of these promising methodologies is needed.
