Additionally, there are some Particle kinetic simulation of high altitude hypervelocity flight. A kinetic bombardment or a kinetic orbital strike is the hypothetical act of attacking a planetary surface with an inert projectile from orbit, where the destructive power comes from the kinetic energy of the projectile impacting at very high speeds. The concept originated during the Cold War.. Typical depictions of the tactic are of a satellite containing a magazine of tungsten rods and a. The largest known hypersonic light gas gun was the Lawrence Livermore SHARP Gun in the early 's, which reached 3 km/s with a 5 kg projectile, for a kinetic energy of MJ. The largest hypervelocity gun launcher was it's namesake predecessor, the High Altitude Research Project (HARP) in . The ability to measure lightning activity with high-altitude infrasound instruments has demonstrated the potential for using these platforms to image the full acoustic wavefield in the atmosphere.

Developmental Testing. Nearly hypervelocity impact tests were performed to (1) select the SDS configuration, (2) obtain data to characterize the response of the SDS to hypervelocity impacts as a function of projectile size, density, and impact velocity and angle, and (3) verify the response of the flight hardware including the data acquisition system. @article{osti_, title = {New HANE Fireball Physics: Implications for US Infrastructure Vulnerability}, author = {Hewett, D W and Larson, D J and Eng, C and Tarwater, A E and Brecht, S H}, abstractNote = {The vulnerability of the US infrastructure to High altitude Nuclear Explosions (HANEs) continues to be the object of studies by a number of blue-ribbon panels and commissions. If we define R as the dose rate at distance x 0, v as the missile speed, h as the flight altitude i.e. the minimum distance to the missile, t f as the time of flight above the horizon, and t=0 at overflight, is the slant range to the missile at each time t. the inverse-square-law scaling factor is. By limiting the size of the direct-simulation Monte Carlo region to only areas in collisional nonequilibrium, the modular particle-continuum method is able to reproduce full direct-simulation.

The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) was a proposed missile defense system intended to protect the United States from attack by ballistic strategic nuclear weapons (intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles).The concept was first announced publicly by President Ronald Reagan on Ma Reagan was a vocal critic of the doctrine of mutual assured Jurisdiction: Federal government of the United States. altitude dynamics of atmospheric impact thus rotation atmosphere magnitude terms density zero entry vehicle term flight value entry body center angular velocity relative guidance pressure aerodynamic velocity vector Post a Review You. Finding 1: High confidence in the validity of (1) assessments of the response of spacecraft components and shield configurations to debris impacts and (2) component and shield qualification and acceptance tests can presently be provided only by hypervelocity impact testing, but current hypervelocity impact facilities cannot simulate the full.
