Overview of Missile Design, Development, and System Engineering
Thursday, April 9, 2020 14:00 -15:00 EDT
Missiles provide the essential accuracy and standoff range capabilities that are required in modern warfare. Technologies for missiles are rapidly emerging, resulting in the frequent introduction of new missile systems. The capability to meet the requirements for performance, cost, risk, and launch platform integration of missile systems is driven by missile design, development, and system engineering.
This presentation provides an overview of the broad range of alternatives in satisfying missile requirements such as cost, performance, risk, and launch platform integration. The methods presented are generally physics-based, to provide insight into the primary driving parameters. Typical values of missile parameters and the characteristics of current operational missiles are discussed, as well as the enabling subsystems and technologies for missiles and the current/projected state-of-the-art. Videos are presented to illustrate missile development tests and facilities and missile performance.
What you will learn:
• Key drivers in the missile design, development, and system engineering process
• System-of-systems considerations
• Critical trade-offs and technologies in aerodynamic, propulsion, structure, seeker, warhead, fuzing, and subsystems sizing to meet flight performance and other requirements
• Robustness, lethality, guidance, navigation & control, accuracy, observables, survivability, safety, reliability, and cost considerations
• Launch platform-missile integration
• Climatic environment requirements
• Missile system and technology development process and facilities
• Flight test requirements
• Missile transformational technologies
Eugene Fleeman has 50+ years of government, industry, academia, and consulting experience in the design and development of missile systems. Formerly a manager of missile programs at the US Air Force Research Laboratory, Rockwell International, Boeing, and Georgia Tech, he is an international lecturer on missiles and the author of 200+ publications, including three textbooks. His textbooks and short courses on Missile Design, Development, and System Engineering emphasize physics-based prediction methods, for enhanced insight, speed, and accuracy to the conceptual design process. Since the year 1999 his short course has been held over 100 times in fifteen countries and five continents.
