Tech Digest Vol.22 Num.4 Cover

Air Defense Part II—Combat Systems
Volume 22, Number 4 (October–December 2001)

This is the second of three Johns Hopkins APL Technical Digest issues featuring the Air Defense Systems Department (ADSD). In the first issue R. W. Constantine outlined the Department’s programs in area defense, self-defense, and battle force. Two articles then described ADSD’s systems engineering and technical approach to solving air defense and other technical problems. These were followed by articles relating primarily to surface-to-air missilery and to the science, technology, engineering, and operational requirements that drove the development of the Standard Missile variants (Fig. 1). The third Technical Digest issue in this Air and Missile Defense series will be devoted to battle force engi-neering. All three issues are in consonance with APL’s roles as the Navy’s Technical Direction Agent, Technical Advisor, and Trusted Agent for Air and Missile Defense matters. Each issue describes the engineering we do to provide defense against the spectrum of hard-to-hit, long-range, high-altitude ballistic missiles to close-in self-defense seaskimming cruise missiles.
