  • 6. UNCLASSIFIEDBallistic Missile Composition SIMPLE DESIGN: COMPLEX DESIGNS: SCUD variant MaRV MIRV PBV Warhead/RV Tankage: Oxidizer & Propellant Airframe Guidance Multiple Stages with Separating Warhead Motor UNCLASSIFIED
  • 7. UNCLASSIFIED Ballistic Missiles: Propellant Types Propellant = Fuel + Oxidizer which produces Thrust Solid Propellant Liquid Propellant•! Basically – combustion chamber tubes •! Combines separately stored liquid chemicals, packed with a propellant that contains a fuel and an oxidizer, to produce thrust. both fuel and oxidizer blended together •! May be either cryogenic or hypergolic: uniformly. For example Shuttle SRBs: •! Cryogenic Propellant : very cold, liquefied •! Oxidizer -- ammonium perchlorate gases as fuel and oxidizer; Typical uses: (69.93%) SLV •! Fuel – Powdered aluminum (16%) •! Hypergolic Propellant: fuel and oxidizer ignite on contact with each other. No spark •! Catalyzer -- Iron oxidizer powder is needed. (0.07%) •! SCUD B/Shahab/No Dong: Inhibited •! Remainder is an epoxy binder that Red Fuming Nitric Acid (IRFNA) also burns (oxidizer) + Unsymmetrical Dimethylhydrazine (UDMH)(fuel)•! Shape of chamber controls burn via exposed propellant surface •! Advantages: highest energy per unit of fuel mass, variable thrust, and a restart capability•! Advantages: Stable, storable; simple – •! Disadvantages: Complex storage/plumbing; enables mobility; Precise injection metering; High capacity•! Disadvantages: Low tolerance for error pumps; Limited mobility and long term in manufacture, cannot shut down & storage; HIGHLY TOXIC (hypergolics) restart UNCLASSIFIED
  • 8. UNCLASSIFIED Ballistic Missiles: Basing Mode - FixedBallistic missiles are deployed from either fixed or mobile bases•! Silo: Hardened, underground shelter for security and protection from elements •! Not immune to attack, difficult for liquid propellant missiles for long term storage•! Elevate to Launch: Semi-buried, better access to service missile, useful when terrain does not permit deeply buried facilities •! More vulnerable to attack•! Roll-out to Launch: Missiles stored in hard/deeply buried facility, rolled out to pre-surveyed launch pad for launch •! Missiles vulnerable until launch or returned to facility; gives away intentions (aids opponent I&W) and may lead to preemptive strike. UNCLASSIFIED
  • 9. UNCLASSIFIED Ballistic Missiles: Basing Mode - MobileBallistic missiles are deployed from either fixed or mobile bases•! Rail: Permits dispersal across broad area; organic support; deployment of “heavy” missiles •! Unique identifiers of train set, maintenance shelters a weak point, costly infrastructure to build/maintain•! TEL/MEL: Most mobile of land-based modes, self-sufficient for solid propellant missiles; easier for CCDD •! Limitations on size/weight of missile and supporting road infrastructure/terrain•! SHIP-BASED: Asymmetric threat concept but on the margins •! Vessel size/stability vs. sea state directly impacts ability to successfully elevate, service, launch missile•! SLBM: Most survivable, assured 2nd strike. Employed by US, Russia, with China and India in development •! Very expensive to develop, build and operate•! ALBM: Allows launch closer to threat territory decreasing flight and warning times •! Limited by carrier aircraft size UNCLASSIFIED
  • 10. UNCLASSIFIED Ballistic Missiles Defined•! Guided only during boost phase of flight•! Once powered flight is complete, only gravity affects remainder of trajectory •! Plus a little drag on reentry•! “Guided” has historically implied a relatively gentle means of controlling the state vector at thrust termination (Vbo) •! To a static target UNCLASSIFIED
  • 11. UNCLASSIFIED Ballistic Missiles Defined: RealityIn reality, ballistic missiles are not “ballistic” . . . there are many ways to change trajectory during and after boost •! Endo-atmospheric maneuvers •! Maneuvers in the atmosphere using aerodynamic surfaces on the booster or RV •! Used during boost, after boost or both •! Exo-atmospheric maneuvers •! Maneuvers outside the atmosphere using small liquid propellant thrusters or solid propellant motors •! Used after boost •! Generalized energy management system maneuvers •! Used on boosters that allow all stages to burn to depletion (i.e., solid fuel); missile pitches and yaws during boost phase to waste energy to control range •! Can result in a much less “gentle” guidance during boost phase Complicates Missile Warning And BMD Missions UNCLASSIFIED
  • 12. UNCLASSIFIED Endo-Atmospheric ManeuversBooster Mounted•! Uses aerodynamic surfaces for lift Booster •! Takes advantage of atmosphere and missile’s velocity to “fly” further down range •! Can increase range by 100s of km over “basic” ballistic missileRV Mounted (MaRV)•! Ballistic missile performance and accuracy decrease as MaRV ranges >500 km if payload remains attached to booster •! Booster needs to be strengthened for re-entry •! Easier to separate payload after boost•! To make a MaRV, add moveable fins to separating payload •! Then maneuver in atmosphere during re-entry to: Avoid defenses; aero range extensions; add terminal guidance maneuvers•! All at large ranges UNCLASSIFIED
  • 13. UNCLASSIFIED Boost-Phase ManeuveringGeneralized Energy Management Steering (GEMS)•! Many solid propellant missiles don’t shut down to control range, instead their motors burn to depletion•! Since thrust is constant, boosters pitch/yaw during powered flight to “waste” energy as required to make planned range. •! Examples: Trident I C4 SLBM and THAAD•! May be as simple as corkscrews or more complex maneuvers This is an example of GEMS …and this is not (THAAD launch) (failed BULAVA SLBM launch) UNCLASSIFIED
  • 14. UNCLASSIFIED Exo-Atmospheric ManeuversPost-Boost Vehicles (PBVs)•! Use a small (typically restartable liquid propellant) upper stage motor •! Deploy MIRVs from a single booster •! Targets may be 100s of kms apart •! Deploy BMD countermeasures •! Correct boost phase errors during mid- course flight Inflatable decoy for Minuteman III UNCLASSIFIED
  • 15. UNCLASSIFIED Ballistic Missile Threat•! Ballistic missile threat will continue to proliferate and grow in capacity and capability•! Increasingly seen as both an asymmetric threat and economical log-range/deep strike alternative to manned aircraft•! Threat countries are pursuing WMD warheads despite international sanctions and counter-proliferation efforts•! Future systems will incorporate active and passive countermeasures and a reduced logistical footprint•! Mobility and underground facilities will protect deployed missiles•! Growing mobile force using deception and denial Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures which complicate I&W and counter- targeting UNCLASSIFIED

  • 24. UNCLASSIFIED BMD Doctrine UNDER RE-WRITEGuiding Pub: “Countering Air and Missile Threats” (JP 3-01, 5 Feb 2007)BMD included under Counterair Mission:!! “The counterair mission integrates both offensive and defensive operations, by all capable joint force components, to counter the air and missile threat by attaining and maintaining air superiority” (Chp 1)!! Counterair mission consists of Offensive Counterair (OCA) and Defensive Counterair (DCA) missions. !! Offensive Counterair: “The goal of OCA operations is to prevent the launch of enemy aircraft and missiles by destroying them and their overall supporting infrastructure prior to employment. This could mean preemptive action against an adversary” !! As applied to BMD – Attack Operations to include “attacks on missile sites,…,command and control (and) infrastructure” !! Defensive Counterair: “(A)ll defensive measures designed to detect, identify, intercept, and destroy or negate enemy forces attempting to penetrate or attack through friendly airspace” Includes active and passive measures !! As applied to BMD: !! Active Defense: “…direct defensive action taken to destroy, nullify, or reduce the effectiveness of air and missile threats against friendly forces and assets. It includes the use of aircraft, air defense weapons, missile defense weapons, electronic warfare (EW), sensors, and other available weapons/capabilities.” !! Passive Defense: “…all measures, other than active AMD, taken to minimize the effectiveness of hostile air and missile threats against friendly forces and assets. These measures include detection, warning, camouflage, concealment, deception, dispersion, and the use of protective construction.” Sometimes Referred To As “The Three Pillars of Missile Defense UNCLASSIFIED
  • 25. UNCLASSIFIED BMD: Attack Operations “…to prevent the launch of enemy . . . missiles by destroying them and their overall supporting infrastructure prior to employment. This could mean preemptive action against an adversary”In Theory: Preferred method of countering missile threats by reducing level of threat defensive forces face; AO range throughoutenemy territory, are conducted at initiative of friendly forces, and normally are a high priority.In Practice: Not very successful where ballistic missile forces are concerned:•! Operation CROSSBOW (Dec 43 – Jun 44): Allied bombing campaign against V-1 and V-2 •! >25,000 sorties with > 36,000 tons of bombs dropped against production and support facilities including fixed launch pads •! Net result – V-1 strikes continued and V-2 strikes began against London summer ’44•! Operation DESERT STORM (1992): Dedicated A-10 & SOF assigned to seek/destroy SCUD MEL/TEL •! 1/3 of the 2,000 daily sorties dedicated to SCUD hunting •! Net result – SOF team captured, 0 MEL/TEL struck, launches continued against Israel and single largest US casualty event of DS was via SCUD strikeMajor challenges to AO: ROE and real-time, actionable intelligence. Peenemunde V-2 test site UNCLASSIFIED
  • 26. UNCLASSIFIED BMD: Passive Defense“…all measures, other than active AMD, taken to minimize the effectiveness of hostile missile threats against friendly forces and assets.”•!Passive BMD improves survivability by reducing the likelihood of detection and targeting of friendly assets and thereby minimizing the potential effects of adversary reconnaissance, surveillance, and attack. •!Passive measures include detection, warning, camouflage, concealment, deception, dispersion, and the use of protective construction. •!Treaties and export control regimes may also be considered a form of passive defense UNCLASSIFIED
  • 27. UNCLASSIFIED BMD: Active Defense“…direct defensive action taken to destroy, nullify, or reduce the effectiveness of hostile missile threats against friendly forces and assets.” •! Active BMD includes the use of aircraft, air defense weapons, missile defense weapons, electronic warfare sensors, and other available weapons/capabilities. •! Missile defense is defined as “defensive measures designed to destroy attacking enemy missiles, or to nullify or reduce the effectiveness of such an attack.” •! Integration of systems enables defense in depth, with the potential for multiple engagements that increase the probability for success. •! AMD assets normally provide overlapping coverage, however, not all anti-air DCA assets have organic capability against BM; likewise, not all anti-BM DCA have anti-air and CM defense capabilities. •! Offensive counterair and defensive counterair operations use many of the same sensors, weapons, and command and control systems. UNCLASSIFIED

  • 30. UNCLASSIFIED BMD By Flight Phase: AscentASCENT PHASE: begins right after the missile’s poweredflight and ends just prior to apogee. Benefits include: •! Earlier intercept in the battle space •! Optimizes a “shoot-look-shoot” tactic to defeat threat before countermeasure deployment •! Enables debris mitigation •! Reduces number of interceptors required to defeat a raid of threat missiles •! Reduces loading on remainder of BMDS architecture by not eliminating need to track and kill a threat reentry vehicle and associated objects, •! Reduces costs of maintaining significant number of expensive interceptors to destroy advanced countermeasures in a later phase of a threat missile’s flight•! Places a premium on early launch detection and tracking, emphasis on launch/engage on remote and need for longer- range interceptors•! Mostly PPT and paper CONOPS – if funded, capability won’t be fielded until late this decade/early 2020’s •! Significant technical, engineering, C2 and fiscal challenges Boost Phase + Ascent Phase = “Early Intercept” UNCLASSIFIED
