Event Brief

This series of online webinars provide a system-level, integrated method for missile design, development, and system engineering.

The webinar series will start with an overview of missile design, development, and system engineering. The successive webinars will provide more in-depth information, addressing the specialized areas of missile aerodynamics, missile propulsion, missile weight, missile flight performance, missile guidance, missile lethality, missile system engineering, and missile development.

The prediction methods presented in the webinars are generally simple closed-form analytical expressions that are physics-based, to provide better insight into the primary driving parameters. Typical values of missile parameters and the characteristics of current operational missiles are discussed, along with the enabling subsystems, technologies, and the current/projected state-of-the-art. Videos will be used to illustrate missile system and subsystems development activities.
