This project required the design of an anti-ballistic missile that is air-launched from a UAV. The UAV would be operating between 30000 to 50000 feet and Mach 0.15. This missile needs to travel at least 200 nm and is able to engage ballistic missiles both inside and outside the atmosphere. As the missile is air-launched, the missile is limited to a maximum weight of 1000 pounds. The maximum diameter of the missile is limited to 12 inches. The designed team approached this task using "adaptive" engineering and divided the team into various sub-components. These sub-components include sections covering propulsion, structure, aerodynamics, warhead, seeker, guidance & Control and Communications & Power. Each sub-component designed their individual area using both hand calculations and simulation software. However, close collaborations exist between each sub-component to ensure the final missile design will meet the specifications. The design team is able to meet all the required specifications. The final weight of the missile is 914 pounds which is 91.4% of the maximum weight. The missile was able to meet all the flight and engagement requirements during simulations.
