Chimera ATF
Image

Overview:
The Chimera ATF was a child of the X-17 and X-19 concepts put forth during the fighter trials that led to the adoption of the Valkyrie IDS. In that competition the X-17 and X-19 both took the path of high stealth and capable electronic suites while the Valkyrie IDS took the path of maneuverability and low observability. The Valkyrie won that competition due to its exceptional dog fighting characteristics, its powerful electronics and its overall survivability.

The governments parameters for the Advanced Tactical Fighter were to develop an aircraft with the ability to operate from carriers and take the fight to the enemy. This meant that the aircraft would often be forced to penetrate heavily defended enemy areas. The ability to conducted lengthy combat air patrols were also an important consideration. The aircraft needed all weather operation, an effective strike ability with the use of stand off weapons preferred and the ability to penetrate heavily defended enemy air defenses.

Rushing Aircraft Company borrowed from its X-17. Rushing married a slippery high stealth airframe to the electronics package, including LPI radar and multi-spectral sensors, used in the Valkyrie thus cutting development cost. Rushing also developed a digital electronic warfare ability by attached wing pods. Though Rushing would go far beyond an updated X-17 by taking a look at a test craft called the Hummingbird.

The Hummingbird was a tailless research aircraft designed to determine the feasibility of thrust vectoring and tailless design that flew in the early 90's. The Hummingbird had proven its design in over 500 test flights and managed to achieve controlled flight at a 70° angle of attack.

The Hummingbird design had an inherently lower RCS then aircraft with tails. Therefore, Rushing decided to build their ATF from the ground up to be a tailless stealth aircraft. In initial test and comparisons the Chimera ATF showed a superior ability to penetrate enemy air defense. Stealth, super maneuverability and electronics give the Chimera respectable air to air capability.

Airframe:
There are two broad aspects of RCS minimization techniques. One falls under the effort to restructure the frame, and covers the geometric design considerations that are taken into account when aiming for a low RCS. The other principle is referred to as “radar absorbent materials” and is concerned with the materials that help to reduce the reflectivity of the airframe, as well as the structures that will support these materials and integrate them into the airframe often referred to as “Radar-absorbent structures”. These two path are of course not taken in isolation during the design; trade-offs have to be made between them in the design of the Chimera.

The most efficient way to reflect radar waves back to the transmitting radar is with orthogonal metal plates, forming a corner reflector consisting of either a dihedral or a trihedral. This configuration occurs in the tail of a conventional aircraft, where the vertical and horizontal components of the tail are set at right angles. To reduce this effect the Chimera was designed as a tailless airplane.

This tailless design results in an exceptionally maneuverable aircraft with outstanding low observability features. The fuselage and canopy have sloping sides. The canopy seam, bay doors and other surface interfaces are saw-toothed. The engine face is deeply hidden by a serpentine inlet duct and weapons are carried internally.

The tailless design utilizes a modified Lambda wing design mounted at the rear of the aircraft and supported by a slight delta shaping which moves towards the aircraft cockpit. The wing is constructed of nearly 90% composites reinforced with carbon nanotube doped carbon fiber reinforced plastic. The Chimera can maintain a constant angle of attack of over 60° and utilizes split ailerons, deflectable slats on the leading edge, thrust vectoring and a powerful fly by optics system.

The Chimera was designed with low observance throughout the entire spectrum of sensors including radar signature, visual, infrared signature, acoustic, and radio frequency as primary considerations. The low radar signature is due to a combination of factors which include special shaping techniques that include double curvature surfaces, the use of radar absorbent material, and attention to detail such as hinges and pilot helmets that could provide a radar return.

The engines use radar-absorbent material-coated S-shaped intake ducts that shield the compressor fan from reflecting radar waves. The intakes are designed through careful shaping of the airflow to prevent engine surge resulting in a compressor stall to enhance the top speed of the aircraft and performance at high angles of attack.

To disguise its infrared emissions and make it harder to detect by infrared homing surface-to-air or air-to-air missiles the Chimera uses a new ceramic-matrix RAM on its engine exhaust nozzles that is designed to reduce both the radar and IR signatures. Additionally, the aircraft uses a complicated series of paints and coatings. A new type of paint, or topcoat, first used to increase the Valkyrie's stealthiness by reducing its vulnerability to infrared threats is also applied to the Chimera. The topcoat protects the aircraft against a broad range of wavelengths and uses metal oxides for optimal radar cross section compatibility.

The Chimera is 40% titanium, 30% composite, 20% aluminum and 1% thermoplastic by weight. Titanium is used for its high strength-to-weight ratio in critical stress areas, including some of the bulkheads, and also for its heat-resistant qualities in the hot sections of the aircraft where it is combined with thermal coatings. Carbon-fiber composites have been used for the fuselage frame, the doors, the wings, and for the honeycomb sandwich construction of its skin panels.

The Chimera with its inherently unstable tailless design and 3D thrust vectoring is more maneuverable and agile than other fighters. In addition, the tailless design reduces the weight, drag and radar cross section of the aircraft. The Chimera includes a tailhook, concealed in a bay when not in use, to effect carrier landings.

The Chimera is tough and resistant to engine surge even during extreme maneuvers like classic, inverted and flat spins. This results in an aircraft capable of greater reliability and maneuverability. The Chimera is capable of performing a 180 degree turn. With such a high angle of attack the plane retains control and can perform such maneuvers as the Herbst maneuver, Pugachev's Cobra, and the Kulbit. The Chimera thrust vectoring nozzles, fly by optic system and tailless design allow the aircraft to turn tightly, and perform extremely high alpha (angle of attack) maneuvers.

Engine:
Thrust is provided by two ALTECH 30 low bypass turbofans with afterburning. The ALTECH 30 features 3D thrust vectoring technology. These engines allow the Chimera to fly in a different direction to where the nose is pointing. The nozzles can be pointed 32 degrees in either direction on the y axis, and 15 degrees in either direction on the x axis. The engine generates a larger thrust and has a complex automation system, to facilitate flight modes such as maneuverability. Each engine can independently vector its thrust upwards, downward or side to side. Vectoring one engine up with the other one down can produce a twisting force. Each ALTECH 30 produces 30,550 lbf (135.89 kN) of dry thrust and 42,000lbs lbf (186.82 kN) of thrust with afterburner.

The fuel is cooled to reduced temperatures which are substantially less than ambient temperature so that the volume of the fuel is reduced. The fuel is then stored in the fuel tanks while the fuel is at the reduced temperatures with the reduced volume of the fuel thereby allowing more fuel to be held. A further benefit of this method of fueling is that the energy value of the fuel per unit volume is increased. The onboard fuel cooling system uses liquid nitrogen as a fuel coolant. The refrigerated fuel system provides for more power and increased range through enhanced efficiency and greater fuel volume.

The refrigerated fuel is used to actively cool the aircraft leading edges and its engines tail pipes. This active cooling increases the aircraft resistance to infra-red tracking substantially. Not only does the aircraft have a very low RCS but it is much harder to track by heat seeking weapons. Both factors contribute to an aircraft that can get closer to the enemy and deeper into enemy air space.

Avionics:
The Chimera ATF shares the AN/APG-7 Active Electronically Scanned Array designed by Nemesis Electronic Systems for the Valkyrie IDS. The AN/APG-7 provides positive target identification, autonomous tracking of all targets in range, coordinate generation, and precise weapons guidance from extended standoff ranges as great as 200 miles (321 km). The radar features 15 kw of peak power and 120° Azimuth and elevation.

Designed for air superiority and strike operations, the AN/APG-7 features a low-observable, active-aperture, electronically-scanned array that can track 100 targets in any weather. The AN/APG-7 changes frequencies more than 2,000 times per second to reduce the chance of being intercepted. The radar can also use complicated search patterns that reduce the chance of detection.

The AN/APG-77 has a dedicated high resolution Synthetic-aperture radar mode. The radar can also focus its emissions to overload enemy sensors, giving the Chimera an electronic-attack capability. The AN/APG-7 transmits data at the rate of 600 Megabit per second while receiving data at 1 gigabit per second. This is the Chimera's primary connection to the combat network system. The aircraft also contains a dedicated SATCOM module to provide for combat network connectivity even on deep strike missions.

Three Nemesis Electronic Systems Common Integrated Processing Units (CIPU) are the “brains” of the Chimera avionics. Each CIPU is composed of twin quad core processors, each with four cores on one die and an integrated memory controller, front side bus and 4 megabyte cache. Each core can process 13.1 billion instructions per second. Each CIPU has 8 gigabyte of memory. Each CIPU, which is the size of an oversized bread box, supports all signal and data processing for all sensors and mission avionics. Additionally, information can be gathered from the radar and other onboard and offboard systems, filtered by the CIPU, and offered in easy-to-digest ways on several cockpit displays, enabling the pilot to remain on top of complicated situations.

Each CIPU is a sealed unit that is actively cooled by the aircraft's refrigerated fuel system. Like any liquid cooled computer case the CIPU runs cooler and as designed provides for greater resistance to the elements.

The AN/ALR-9 radar warning receiver has been demonstrated detecting radars at ranges as long as 400 nmi (740 km). This radar warning receiver allows the Chimera ATF to limit its own radar emission to preserve its stealth. The AN/ALR-9 is composed of over 30 antennas smoothly blended into the wings and fuselage that provide all around coverage plus azimuth and elevation information. As a target approaches, the receiver can cue the AN/APG-7 radar to track the target with a narrow beam, which can be as focused down to 1° by 1° in azimuth and elevation.

The Electronic Optical Targeting System (EOTS) augments the AN/APG-7 and includes a laser designator and tracker (60,000' attitude) for guiding laser-guided bombs, cryogenically cooled FLIR receiver and CCD television cameras mounted under the nose of the aircraft.

Eight additional passive infrared/Ultra violet sensors are distributed over the aircraft as part of Nemesis Electronic Systems' AN/AAQ-7 distributed aperture system (DAS), which performs several important functions. The DAS acts as a missile warning system, reports missile launch locations, detects and tracks approaching aircraft spherically around the Chimera, and replaces traditional night vision goggles for night operations and navigation. DAS functions are performed simultaneously, in every direction, at all times.

Sensor fusion combines data from all onboard and offboard sensors into a common view to prevent the pilot from being overwhelmed. The Chimera cockpit is all glass without any conventional instrumentation. The centerpiece are four multi-function heads down displays which are manipulated by means of softkeys, touch screen, XY cursor and voice command. The Symmetriad AHG-1 helmet features the latest avionics systems, including a full projected helmet-mounted display, active noise cancellation, and a filtered microphone to improve the work of voice control systems and replaces the traditional heads up display.

The DVI system used by Nemesis Electronics is a speaker-dependent system that provides the pilot command and control of all non-critical cockpit functions. Confirmation of voice commands is either visual or aural. This system is capable of sending text based orders to other aircraft or facilities through the aircrafts AESA based datalink.

Emergency escape is provided by a Symmetriad Laertes IV Advanced Ejection Seat. Furthermore, the pilot wears a Symmetriad AMS-4 g-suits with built-in air management and health monitoring systems.

The Chimera uses combined radio frequency and infrared (SAIRST) situational awareness to track all nearby aircraft continually with the pilot's helmet-mounted display system (HMDS). The Chimera uses fibre optic cabling and circuitry is composed of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) for protection against electromagnetic interference or EMP attack where possible. Additional protections are provided by utilization of antennas and power connections with surge protectors designed specifically to defend against EMP attack, the cockpit is coated with a conductive coating, and all doors and wiring/tubing pathways through protective shielding is sealed with conductive gaskets.

Armaments:
Armaments include an internal 20 mm (0.787 in) M31A2 six-barreled, air-cooled, electrically fired Gatling-style cannon, which fires 20 mm rounds at 6600 rpm in starboard wing root with 480 rounds with a remotely operated door that shields the gun from radar when not in use. A bomb bay carries the Chimera's standard ordinance internally. Many more missiles, bombs and fuel tanks can be attached on wing pylons near wingtip positions at the expense of stealth.

Countermeasures:
Countermeasures include the Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radars which can act as an ECM device to track, locate and eventually jam enemy radar. The electronic attack capability is developed enough that a Chimera can burn out unshielded electronics. 60 flares and 60 chaff are carried in two side mounted dispensers.

Valkyrie IDS
Image

The Kirov Design Valkyrie IDS is a single-seat, twin-engine, low observability multirole fighter, that can perform close air support, tactical bombing, and air defense missions. The Valkyrie IDS is intended to be among the best dog fighters in the world with close and long-range air-to-air capability. The aircraft blends supercruise speed, super-agility, low observability and sensor fusion into a single air dominance platform. The Valkyrie IDS is capable of Mach 1.88 with a maximum service ceiling of 70,000'.

The Valkyrie is highly maneuverable, at both supersonic and subsonic speeds. It is extremely departure-resistant, enabling it to remain controllable at extreme pilot inputs. The Valkyrie's thrust vectoring nozzles allow the aircraft to turn tightly, and perform extremely high alpha (angle of attack) maneuvers such as the Herbst maneuver (or J-turn), Pugachev's Cobra, and the Kulbit, though the J-Turn is more useful in combat. The Valkyrie is also capable of maintaining a constant angle of attack of over 60°, yet still having some control of roll.

Airframe:
The Valkyrie has earned the nickname Devils Cross due to its wing design. A substantial part of the lift generated by the forward-swept wing occurs at the inner portion of the wingspan. The lift is not restricted by wingtip stall. The ailerons - the wing's control surfaces - remain effective at the highest angles of attack, and controllability of the aircraft is retained even in the event of airflow separating from the remainder of the wings' surface.

The wing panels are constructed of nearly 90% composites reinforced with carbon nanotube doped carbon fiber reinforced plastic. The forward-swept midwing has a low aspect ratio, which contributes to speed and maneuverability. The leading-edge root extensions blend smoothly to the wing panels, which are fitted with deflectable slats on the leading edge; flaps and ailerons on the trailing edge.

The downside of such a wing design is that it produces strong rotational forces that try to twist the wings off, especially at high speeds. This twisting necessitates the use of a large amount of composites in order to increase the strength and durability of the wing. The thrust vectoring of ±20° at in pitch and 5° yaw will greatly support the agility gained by the forward-swept-wings.

The Valkyrie has extremely high agility at subsonic speeds, enabling the aircraft to alter its angle of attack and its flight path very quickly while retaining maneuverability in supersonic flight. Maximum turn rates, and the upper and lower limits on airspeed for weapon launch, are important criteria in terms of combat superiority. The Valkyrie has very high levels of maneuverability with maintained stability and controllability at extreme angles of attack. Maximum turn rates are important in close combat and also at medium and long range, when the mission may involve engaging consecutive targets in different sectors of the airspace.

The swept-forward wing provides a number of advantages:
    Higher lift-to-drag ratio
    Higher capacity in dogfight maneuvers
    Higher range at subsonic speed
    Improved stall resistance and anti-spin characteristics
    Improved stability at high angles of attack
    A lower minimum flight speed
    A shorter take-off and landing distance
The Valkyrie IDS design places a much higher degree of importance on low observance throughout the entire spectrum of sensors including radar signature, visual, infrared, acoustic, and radio frequency then previous generation LGDS fighters. Consequently, the Valkyrie IDS has a low radar signature that is due to a combination of factors, including special shaping techniques that include double curvature surfaces, the use of radar absorbent material, and attention to detail such as hinges and pilot helmets that could provide a radar return.

The Valkyrie has been designed to disguise its infrared emissions to make it harder to detect by infrared homing ("heat seeking") surface-to-air or air-to-air missiles. For example, new ceramic-matrix RAM is utilized on the engine exhaust nozzles to reduce radar and IR signatures. Additionally, a complicated series of paints and coatings are used to meet both RCS and infra-red suppression requirements. A new type of paint, or topcoat, increases the Valkyrie’s stealthiness by reducing its vulnerability to infrared threats. The topcoat protects the aircraft against a broad range of wavelengths and uses metal oxides for optimal radar cross section compatibility.

Engine:
The Valkyrie IDS is powered by two ALTECH 25 thrust vectoring afterburning engines. Each ALTECH 25 produces 23,780 lbf (105.78 kN) of dry thrust and 35,000lbs lbf (155 kN) of thrust with afterburner. The 3D thrust vectoring gives the Valkyrie higher maneuverability with each nozzle capable of ±20° in the pitch and 5° yaw axis.

Avionics:
The Valkyrie shares the Chimera ATF sensor suite. It’s AN/APG-7 AESA look down shoot down radar, designed by Nemesis Electronic Systems is augmented by the Electro-Optical Targeting System (EOTS) mounted under the nose of the aircraft.

Storm Shadow B-1
Image
The Storm Shadow B-1is a heavy bomber designed to penetrate dense anti-aircraft defenses and deploy both conventional and nuclear weapons. It uses speed, its very high altitude and standoff weapons to devastate its targets. Capable of speeds of Mach 4.03 and an attitude of 160,000 feet this aircraft packs a formidable punch carrying 60,000 lbs of ordinance internally. Capable of air launching 12 Seahag Stealth Cruise Missiles.

The Storm Shadow has a range of 8000 nautical miles without refueling. Jointly developed by Rushing Aircraft and Kirov Design this Jet features an advanced engine design that increases efficiency and power over previous designs while lowering fuel cost significantly. It combines GPS Aided Targeting System (GATS) with GPS-aided bombs such as Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).

Its incorporated stealth features to avoid detection, such as retractable weapon stations and main gun, and stealth faceting and radar absorbent materials. The AH-3 Archangel's noise signature is noticeably smaller than others in its class being 10 times quieter than an AH-64 Apache.

The helicopter is armed with a case-less 30 mm automatic M230 Electric Cannon firing depleted uranium armor piercing rounds at the rate of 10,800 rounds per minute that can be slaved to the gunner's Helmet mounted display, fixed to a locked forward firing position, or controlled via the Target Acquisition and Designation System (TADS). The Archangel carries a range of external stores on its retractable weapon stations, typically a mixture of Aries ATGM, Cobra 7 general-purpose unguided 70 mm rockets, and Puma laser guided SAMs, Puma 2 fire and forget , IR homing SAMs for countermeasures defense.

TADS contains stabilized electro-optical sensors, a laser rangefinder and laser target designator. The TADS assembly can rotate +/- 120 degrees in azimuth, +30/-60 degrees in elevation and can move independently of the Pilot Night Vision System (PNVS). The movements of TADS can be 'slaved' to the head movements of the helicopter crew to point where they are looking. This allows images from TADS to be projected onto the crew helmet-mounted optical sights, overlaid upon their view of the cockpit and battle space.

TADS contains a thermal imaging infrared camera, a full color television camera and a directional laser microphone. The AN/APG-18 millimeter-wave Fire Control Radar (FCR) target acquisition system as well as the Radar Frequency Interferometer (RFI) is housed above the rotor. The elevated position of the radome allows detection and (arcing) missile engagement of targets even when the helicopter itself is concealed by an obstacle. The RFI has a highly sensitive 360 degree field of view and integration with the aircraft survivability equipment.

Mounted above the TADS, the PNVS contains an infrared camera slaved to the head movements of the pilot. PNVS can rotate +/- 90 degrees in azimuth and +20/-45 degrees in elevation. Pilot Night Vision System (PNVS) has a high rate of movement (120° per second) so as to accurately match the head movements of the pilot.

All Archangel feature a digital communication suite capable of utilizing and sharing data across the interconnected combat network. This allows the use of sensor data from air, ground, ships and satellites to target enemy forces.

The helicopter utilizes Black Hole OrcanaTM technology to move the engines heat signature to a point above and behind the helicopter. Utilizing aerodynamic shaping the aircraft concentrates engine heat signature up and behind the helicopter. The aircraft also carries flare and chaff dispensers.

UH-5 Wwvyn
Image
The UH-5 Wwvyn is a Advancing Blade system consisting of two rigid, contra-rotating rotors which make use of the aerodynamic lift of the advancing blades. At high speeds, the retreating blades are offloaded, as most of the load is supported by the advancing blades of both rotors and the penalty due to stall of the retreating blade is thus eliminated. This system does not even require a wing to be fitted for high speeds or to improve maneuverability, and also eliminates the need for an anti-torque rotor at the tail.

The UH-5 Wwvyn is optimized for low signatures (acoustic, radar, infrared). It is equipped with a night vision system (Forward Looking Infra-Red, Night Vision Goggles, Helmet Mounted Sight & Display). Other features include weather radar, digital mapping, Obstacle Warning System, cable cutters, armored to protect against 12.7mm armor piercing rounds, defensive weapons suite including two LMG-9 machine guns, passive and active counter measures and the addition of 76mm rocket pods, 30mm gun pods or Quad Aries ATGMs on each of two detachable stub wings. The UH-5 Wwvyn is equipped with the rear-loading ramp to facilitate fast loading.

Transport and AWACS
C-7 Titan
Image
The C-7 Titan is an advanced VSTOL large military transport aircraft that is capable of being configured as an aerial refueling platform. A version of the aircraft designated E-7 Cats Eye serves as the AWACs platform for the Libertarian Governance Defense Force (LGDF). The aircraft features the extensive usage of carbon fibre and is equipped with 4 Rushing Aircraft J100 engines and two Ventner Ducted fan engines. The Rushing engines can direct their trust downward and with the two ducted fans can lift the aircraft vertically.

The nose and aft doors open the full width and height of the cargo compartment to permit faster and easier loading. Ramps are full width at each end for loading double rows of vehicles. The cargo floor has rollers (used for palletized cargo) that can be flipped to provide a flat floor suitable for rolling stock.The cockpit features a fly-by-wire flight control system with sidestick controllers and flight envelope protection. C-7 has a full glass cockpit with digital screens.

The aircraft is equipped with flare and chaff dispensers.

E-7 Cats Eye Awacs is a modified C-7 that has a MESA" Electronically Scanned Array radar mounted in a dorsal arrangement atop the C-7 rear fuselage. and designed to provide all-weather surveillance, command, control and communications. It has an increased range of 8000 km due to internal fuel cells placed in the cargo hold and it carries a crew of 28. The AN/APY-9 "MESA" Electronically Scanned Array radar system provides surveillance from the Earth's surface up into the stratosphere, over land or water.

The MESA radar has a range of more than 250 miles (400 km) for low-flying targets at its operating altitude (essentially to the radar horizon), and a range of approximately 400 miles (650 km) for aerospace vehicles flying at medium to high altitudes (essentially above the radar horizon). The electronically scanned array features three apertures sharing "L" band frequency transmit and receive modules to attain 360 degrees of coverage. The "L" band frequency is an optimum blend of range, detection capability, size and weight. The steerable beam, L-band electronically scanned array is designed to provide optimal performance in range, tracking, accuracy and growth. The radar is able to track air and sea targets simultaneously and can help the operator maintain control of high-performance aircraft while continuously scanning the operational area.

The AN/APY-9 radar can simultaneously track 6000 air, sea and ground targets. The system's variable track update rates and dedicated tracking modes allow the operator to track allied and hostile high performance aircraft while continuously scanning the area of operations.

The Cats Eye has ESM for passive detection of targets and an electronic surveillance capability to detect and identify air and surface-based radar, laser and infra red emitters. The Cats Eye can relay and receive data to/from aircraft, ships, ground personnel and vehicles and control UCAV vehicles.

The system SAR modes can produce images of stationary objects. Objects with many angles (for example, the interior of a pick-up bed) will give a much better radar signature (called specular returns). In addition to being able to detect, locate and track large numbers of ground vehicles, the radar has the capability to detect helicopters, rotating antennas and low, slow moving fixed wing aircraft.

Naval Vessels

Postby Libertarian Governance » Sat Oct 31, 2009 6:09 am

LG Defense Systems knows how to achieve the capacity for naval projection of power. In one operation recently far from the shores of Libertarian Governace a hand full of our attack submarines destroyed an entire fleet of 35 Yousefrian ships with one volley of Tigershark cruise missiles. None of our vessels were touched. The relentless demands of this world, manifested through numerous crises around the globe, continually require a strong navy to maintain a strong forward naval presence.

Krakon Class Attack Submarine
Image
Krakon class subs are designed to be larger, faster, more manueverable and significantly quieter then potential opponents; they also carry more weapons and have twice as many torpedo tubes, for a total of 8. As a result of their advanced design, however, Krakon subs are much more expensive. They are intended to combat the threat of large numbers of advanced enemy submarines.

The Krakon utilizes an advanced titanium alloy that gives it a depth of 4200 feet. That is about the depth of the Soviet submarine K-278 Komsomolets. Instead of periscopes, the subs have a pair of extendable photonics masts outside the pressure hull. Each contains several high-resolution cameras with light-intensification and infrared sensors, an infrared laser rangefinder, and an integrated Electronic Support Measures (ESM) array. Signals from the masts' sensors are transmitted to the control center. The subs also make use of pump-jet propulsors for quieter operations. The subs contain an advanced electromagnetic signature reduction system.

The advanced ARC-1 combat system includes a large Conformal active/passive bow array, a Conformal Acoustic Velocity Sonar (CAVES) WAA, and a towed-array sonar. CAVES is a "smart skin" sonar using numerous fiber-optic accelerometers buried in the submarine's anechoic coating. These sensors detect sound by their movement and combined with the Bow array and towed array provide the ARC-1 unparalleled ability to identify and pinpoint enemy positions with a highly accurate 3d image. The ARC-1 uses a optimal combination of low and medium wavelengths for maximum range and accuracy of data.

The Krakon uses 4 88-inch (2.2 m) diameter large vertical launch systems (VLS) to carry a wide array of missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles or other equipment. Each VLS system can carry a 7 tube cluster of Seahag Cruise Missiles for a total of 28 missiles or Tigershark Cruise Missiles or a variety of unmanned vehicles. The missile tubes can also carry ASROC or any other weapon available for standard VLS tubes.

For special operations, the Advanced Swimmer Delivery System and the Dry Deck Shelter can be mounted on the lock out chambers and the boat will be able to host up to 66 special operations soldiers. Improved communications equipment installed during the upgrade allows the submarines to serve as a forward-deployed, clandestine Small Combatant Joint Command Center.

The Mark-10 torpedo has a 300kg warhead. It is capable of operating with or without wire guidance and uses either or both active and passive homing. Range is 60km (active) and 40km (passive).

The Great White Class Missile Submarine is part of the Libertarian Governance Triad of nuclear forces. It is designed to be nearly impossible to defeat; they also carry more weapons and have twice as many torpedo tubes, for a total of 8. As a result of their advanced design, however, Great White Class Missile Submarines are much more expensive. They are intended to provide a nuclear cruise missile attack on enemy targets.

The Great White Class Missile Submarine utilizes an advanced alloy that gives it a depth of 6000 feet. Instead of periscopes, the subs have a pair of extendable photonics masts outside the pressure hull. Each contains several high-resolution cameras with light-intensification and infrared sensors, an infrared laser rangefinder, and an integrated Electronic Support Measures (ESM) array.

Littoral Combat Ship
Image
The LCS is a fast, highly maneuverable, networked surface combat ship. The design combines high-speed maneuverability with a comfortable seakeeping motion that supports launch and recovery operations, combat missions and optimal human performance from the crew. The ship can turn 360 degrees in less than eight lengths at its rated sprint speed and it can accelerate to full speed in less than two minutes. The ship uses a modular design to facilitate rapid mission configuration. The mission modules will be able to be changed, tested and working within 24 hours.The mission packages will be: mine warfare (MIW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (SUW). The mission modules may be integrated into standard-sized containers that can be installed in the ship and other systems will be transferred onto the ship on pallets. The mission systems will be connected to the ship's network and communicate with the other ship systems and other surface ships and aircraft.

The main armament on all modules is the 88mm naval gun system firing 220 rounds a minute to a range of 18km. This gun is guided by radar and FLIR. The MIW module includes: the AN/WLD-1 remote minehunting system, AN/AQS-20A sonar mine detecting set, organic airborne surface influence sweep, airborne laser mine detection system and airborne mine neutralization system.

The ASW module includes the Sea Snake undersea surveillance system, developed by Nemesis Electronics, which integrates a range of acoustic sensors with semi-submersible vehicles and network-centric communications. Passive sensors include the advanced deployable system (ADS), a rapidly deployable bottom array acoustic surveillance system. The semi-submersible, the AN/WLD-1 with an ASW mission system, tows a remote towed active source (RTAS), a multiband transducer with a remote towed array multi-function sonar. The ASW module also includes systems to be deployed from the Wwvyn S helicopter (mk10 torpedoes, sonobuoys, AN/AQS-12 airborne low-frequency sonar) and unmanned surface vehicles, USVs (dipping sonar, multi-static active sonar and ULITE ultra-lightweight towed array).

The SUW module includes a mk7 40 mm case-less cannon which fires at up to 420 rounds a minute, and 24 Tigershark Stealth ASM tubes. The Wwvyn S is armed with guns and Aries ATGM missiles. The Wwyvvn can also carry torpedoes and 60kg depth charges.

The Archer Class Nuclear Powered Carrier, the centerpiece of our next generation carrier Fleet, is a large-deck, nuclear-powered ship. Featuring newly designed and integrated combat systems that eliminates rotating antennas. Archer Nuclear Carrier incorporates new integrated combat systems, and advanced nuclear propulsion plant and a new electrical power and distribution system. Carriers will feature additional new technologies including an Electromagnetic Aircraft Launching System (EMALS), an Electromagnetic Aircraft Recovery System (EARS), improved crew habitability, survivability improvements, performance improvements, and new functional arrangements and distributed systems.

The Archer Nuclear Carrier is designed to deliver more combat power through its ability to arm and refuel, launch, and recover aircraft more rapidly and effectively than current ships. An advanced weapons-information management systems automates the process of weapons movement from magazines to aircraft. The electromagnetic aircraft launching and arresting systems require less wind across the deck for aircraft launch recovery, and significantly accelerates the process of "turning around" combat aircraft and generating high sortie rates. The Archer Nuclear Carrier is optimized to support the Chimera ATF.

The Archer Nuclear Carrier features a substantially smaller redesigned command "island" (the carrier superstructure) than current aircraft carriers, as well multifunction arrays that replace the forest of antennas that current ships sprout, making the carrier inherently harder to detect and attack. Finally, a redundant electrical grid system and advanced damage-control features make the ship more capable of surviving battle damage.

The weaponry in this section is without a doubt superior to any comparable system anywhere in the world. The more advanced weapons here enable countries to strike anywhere in the world within minutes with devastating accuracy. LG Defense Forces has many more weapons available by special export permit. If you do not see exactly what you may need please don't hesitate to ask for assistance.

HGM-RPG
Image
HGM-RPG was developed as an inexpensive anti-armor weapon for use by members of the Home Guard Militia. The HGM-RPG is intended to defeat most modern tanks fitted with ERA protection. The HGM-RPG is a shoulder fired, single-shot, smooth-bored, recoilless launcher. Unlike many RPG-type launchers, the HGM-RPG is a breech-loading weapon, with large caliber barrel, made from two quick-detachable parts, front and rear. The rear part of the barrel is fitted with folding mono-pod support. The front part of the barrel has the fire control module with pistol grip, trigger and manual safety, the folding iron sights, and 2.7X telescope sight.

The rocket warhead is a tandem shaped charge HEAT and a rocket booster with eight folding stabilization fins at the rear. With this design, the smaller front warhead is intended to set off the ERA (Explosive Reactive Armor) block from the safe range, and then second larger warhead strikes the hull of the tank. When used against buildings or entrenchments, the rocket can penetrate more than 1.5 meter (5ft) of concrete or brick wall and then cause significant damage to troops beyond the wall.

Aries ATGM
Image
Aries ATGM is a fire-and-forget missile that will lock-on before launch and has automatic self-guidance. The system takes a top-attack flight profile against armored vehicles (attacking the top armor which is generally thinner) but can also take a direct-attack mode for use against buildings or fortifications. This missile also has the ability to engage helicopters in the direct attack mode. The missile reaches a peak altitude of 150m in top attack mode and 50m in direct fire mode. The missile is equipped with an imaging infrared seeker. The tandem warhead is fitted with two shaped charges: a precursor warhead to detonate any explosive reactive armor and a primary warhead to penetrate base armor.

The missile’s tandem warhead is a high-explosive antitank round. The Aries ATGM counters the advent of explosive reactive armor (ERA) by using two shaped-charge warheads in tandem. The precursor charge sets off the ERA and clears it from the path of the main charge, which then penetrates the target’s primary armor. A two-layered molybdenum liner is used for the precursor and a copper liner for the main charge.

The system uses a soft launch to eject the missile from the launch tube but the launcher also eliminates the backblast. The Aries ATGM has 1200 mm RHA armor penetration.

The Aries ATGM uses an advanced AI system that couples laser designation with Infra-red and video pattern recognition to score a 80% kill rate. The command launch unit allows tracking of targets with up to 12x magnification and day or thermal sites.

Puma Shoulder Fired Sam
Image

Overview:

The Puma SAM was designed to provide Libertarian Governance Defense Forces (LGDF) with a man portable missile capable of engaging and killing airborne threats. The Puma was designed to be light weight and counter measure resistant.

History:

Libertarian Governance Defense Forces saw the need for a man portable anti-aircraft missile during the mid sixties. LG Defense Systems was given a contract to produce an infra-red guided SAM that it called the Cricket. The Cricket was produced in the 1972 and quickly became an export favorite in the region.

Advancements in aircraft design and counter measures led to the need of a replacement to the Cricket. By 1988 the Cricket 3 was seen as a weapon that was on the verge of losing its ability to effect high probability interceptions of enemy airpower. The emergence of low observable designs and the industry focus on such technology meant that a new type of missile would be necessary to provide air defense at the squad level.

In 1992 LG Defense Systems was again contracted to produce a design with at its heart the ability to resist counter measures and insure a high probability of kills even on stealthy air frames. The company begin to develop missiles along two separate tracks. The first and the first to actually be fielded was the development of a laser guided weapon designated the Puma.

The Puma was accurate and largely immune to counter measures when it was released. In the Urstanian Conflict over 10 years after it was first released it destroyed large numbers of enemy aircraft and proved capable of surface to surface engagements. The Puma missile was supplemented in 2010 by a weapon designated Puma II which used a cutting edge QWIP Focal Plane Array to provide a fire and forget option.

Design:

The Puma and Puma 2 are identical in size and nearly so in weight. Both use a common launcher and as such are light to carry and easy to operate. The Puma is designed to be fired by a single operator. The Puma missile is transported in a sealed launch tube that is mated to a digital aiming unit (DAU) for firing. This unit provides up to 10x magnification and day and nightvision modes.

To start the launch process a battery coolant unit is attached to the missile tube. This battery provides power for the laser. In Puma 2 itineration the battery coolent unit also fills the seeker head with liquid nitrogen. The laser guided Puma requires the operator to paint the target with the DAU site on the missile tube. An integrated identify friend of foe antenna interrogates the aircraft automatically and will place a red dot over the cross hair if it is aimed at an aircraft broadcasting the proper code. Once an aircraft is in the cross hairs the operator activates the ultraviolet laser by depressing a button with his thumb. The weapon will respond with a green rectangle over the target and if desired, if its not switched off, an audio tone announcing weapon lock.

The missile is then fired by squeezing the trigger. The missile is launched by a small ejection motor that pushes it a safe distance from the operator before engaging the main two-stage solid-fuel sustainer, which accelerates the Puma to a maximum speed of Mach 2.2 (750 m/s). Variants of the Puma can also be fired from the Cougar Jeep, Lynx IFV, Panther MICV, Katana MBT, helicopters and ships.

After launch the Puma is gathered by the laser beam and flies into it. From this stage onwards, the missile attempts to keep itself inside the beam, while the aiming station keeps the beam pointing at the target. The missile, controlled by a computer inside it, rides the beam to the target. The Puma 2 also uses the laser but only to mark the targets range and speed. Lock on is provided by an imaging infra-red seeker using a C - QWIP Focal Plane Array.

The QWIP (Quantum Well Imaging Photodetector) allows a single chip to concurrently image targets in two infrared color bands while permitting the added benefit of allowing for tailored infrared color sensitivity. This allows the Puma 2 to utilize a focal plane array composed of 5 - 1024 x 1024 corrugated QWIPs (C-QWIPs) using inclined micromirrors on the detector sidewalls to reflect light into parallel propagation. This creates the necessary vertical field required for QWIP usage. With a wide range of wavelength bands and high quantum efficiency the Focal Plane Array is capable of highly detailed imaging.

In flight the infra-red imaging system compares the target image to the information in its targeting database which gives the missile a high probability to identify and disregard countermeasures. The missile makes use of proportional navigation to over correct for the targets course changes in order to achieve a high probability of intercept. In fact, the Puma being fully re-programmable by use of either a USB connection or flash drive connected to the transport tube, can have mission/theater specific targeting and counter measure data loaded into its database.

The Puma and Puma 2 both take advantage of a 3 kg directed energy blast fragmentation warhead. This warhead is composed of multiple detonators encased in a contoured fragmentation casing. This arrangement is designed to optimize the initial available explosive energy and efficiently transfer that energy into high velocity fragments.

An added benefit of the multiple detonators is that fragments can be focused more effectively. For example, when both ends are detonated the fragmentation pattern forms an isotropic annular disk and fragmentation occurs in a forward or aft conical disk when detonated on either end. During its terminal flight the Puma 2 will drop off the heat source and direct the missile towards the most vulnerable point of the target as directed by the onboard targeting database.

The Puma system includes a ring laser gyro to eliminate the need to super elevate prior to firing. Both the Puma and Puma 2 are extremely accurate and capable especially against low signature targets and in environments with high clutter or counter measures. Both the DAU and the IFF antenna are powered by rechargeable batteries.

With the focal plane array utilizing Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) it was determined that the Puma system should be hardened against EMP attack. All currently produced Puma systems, laser guided or infra-red guided, uses Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) circuitry while antenna and power supply wiring make use of surge protectors designed specifically to defend against EMP attack. The launch unit, DAU and missiles use fiber optic cabling where ever possible and are sealed with conductive gaskets.

Osiris Thermobaric Bomb
Image
The Osiris vacuum device yields the equivalent of 45 tons of TNT using 7.8 tons of a new high explosive called Brimstone and developed with the use of nanotechnology. Because of this, the bomb has the same destructive power as a small tactical nuclear weapon. The bomb is pulled out of the cargo hold of the aircraft by a parachute, the parachute releases, and the GPS guides the bomb to the target destination where the bomb detonates in mid-air. Most damage is inflicted by a supersonic shockwave and extremely high temperatures, which incinerate everything nearby. Thermobaric weapons differ from conventional explosive weapons by using oxygen from the atmosphere, rather than carrying an oxidizing agent in their explosives. They produce more energy than normal weapons with the Osiris producing a blast radius of 300 m (1000 ft). Delivery is by Stormshadow Bomber.

Seahag Hypersonic Cruise Missile
Image


The Seahag is a ramjet powered hypersonic cruise missile that can be launched from air, land or sea. The design is based upon the need to strike quickly and accurately with a high probability of success in order to destroy targets such as space launch facilities, power grids, communication facilities, command centers and time sensitive high value mobile targets. The range and response time inherent in a hypersonic weapon like the Seahag gives armed forces the ability to destroy any surface target in any theater within minutes.

Waverider Concept:
A waverider is a vehicle that uses its own shock wave to improve its overall performance. The concept is probably most familiar from the world of water sports-motorboats ride the bow wave they create to reduce friction drag and surfers similarly ride the crests of waves. An aircraft traveling at Mach 1 or higher also produces a wave, a shock wave of air The Seahag is tailored to ride this shock wave of air to produce greater lift, less drag, greater range, and overall improved performance.

The Seahag takes advantage of the characteristics of hypersonic flow by integrating in its design an aft portion of the vehicle that promotes expansion of the exhaust so that it is actually an extension of the ramjet nozzle. Thus, the entire undersurface of the vehicle can be considered to be part of the propulsion system. This has the effect of improving the vehicles engine thrust and performance.

Guidance, Networking and Artificial Intelligence:
Targeting information is first dumped into the missile. This is can be very detailed and can include not only current GPS coordinates along with target speed and direction of travel but can include, rules of engagement, scanned pictures of the target, target type, radar, laser or IR readings. Secondary targets can be identified and even prioritized by type or location. This information is loaded into an onboard targeting database and is constantly updated over the Seahag’s combat network link.

The missile then computes an intercept course for the target and once launched proceeds at hypersonic speed to the target area using inertial and GPS guidance. Terminal phase guidance includes a millimeter wave AESA radar which initially acquires the target. The radar has an elevation of +/- 120° and an azimuth of +/- 120°/120°. The radar features mapping capability using synthetic aperture radar (SAR), real beam and doppler beam narrowing modes with very high resolutions. The radar can detect and track with measurement of range and speed both moving and static ground and naval targets.

An imaging infrared (IIR) seeker located in a conformal low RCS pod at the bottom of the radar system scans the area for its target while comparing its data to the information in its strike profile database and off the combat network. The C - QWIP Focal Plane Array has elevation of +/- 12° and an azimuth of +/- 15°. The use of QWIP (Quantum Well Imaging Photodetector) allows a single chip to concurrently image targets in two infrared color bands while permitting the added benefit of allowing for tailored infrared color sensitivity. The focal plane array is composed of 5 - 1024 x 1024 corrugated QWIPs (C-QWIPs) using inclined micromirrors on the detector sidewalls to reflect light into parallel propagation thereby creating the necessary vertical field required for QWIP usage. Efficiency is enhanced due to the wide range of wavelength bands and high quantum efficiency of the array. This provides highly detailed imaging.

The weapon is able to estimate damage and effect from the strikes of other weapons by counting the numbers of missiles that successfully strike its designated targets. This is accomplished by each Seahag being programmed to transmit a high-power signal prior to detonation. Thus a Seahag can re-target itself on nearby secondary targets according to previously set parameters should its primary target be determined to have been sufficiently damaged by other weapons. This gives the Seahag the capacity for independent detection, recognition, and discrimination of targets at sea or on land.

The networking of the Seahag with systems sharing the combat network is coupled with the ability of the missiles to communicate with each other and other weapon packages. The AI can share and utilize sensor data with other networked systems, determine what weapons hit their targets and using such information can effectively deliver the most devastating strike on enemy forces. Like all networked systems the Seahag uses unique hardware encoded keyfiles and a launcher generated keyfile coupled with cascaded ciphers using individual randomly generated keys.

Seahag uses fibre optic cabling and circuitry composed of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) for protection against electromagnetic interference or EMP attack where possible. Additional protections are provided by utilization of antennas and power connections with surge protectors designed specifically to defend against EMP attack, the optical inputs have conductive coatings over them and all doors and wiring/tubing pathways through protective shielding is sealed with conductive gaskets.

Counter Measures System:
A missile warning system is capable of deploying both chaff and flares. Each Seahag carries flare and chaff dispensers on both sides of the weapon. Forty flare and forty chaff packages are carried for deployment. In addition the Seahag will deploy chaff and flares in its terminal phase.

The Seahag is capable of carrying in place of its warhead a sophisticated digital electronic warfare suite. With sophisticated adaptable jamming capabilities, the system is programmed to activate under a number of preset parameters determined prior to launch. This allows only a few missiles to attempt jamming of enemy systems at a time. This provides a defense against home on jam weapons through the cascaded activation of EW systems.

The Seahag can carry a modified SWARM warhead called the SWARM - B. This warhead deploys 16 SWARM munitions that have been modified to act as decoys that confuse CIWS and point defense missile systems. The Swarm B mimic the infra-red and radar signature of the Seahag perfectly.

Ramjet Engine:
Twin liquid-fueled ramjets are responsible for sustained hypersonic cruise.

Flight Profile:
Both the surface launched and air launched versions of the weapon use a detachable booster rocket. The rocket varies in size and burn duration for each application. The rocket will boost the missile to 120,000 feet and mach 4 before being jettisoned. The ramjet then ignites and pushes the missile to a cruising speed of mach 5.35. This cruise phase brings the missile 508 nautical miles down range. Finally, the missile pitches over into the descent phase. This phase lasts for 5 minutes and allows a target that is an additional 253 nautical miles away to be destroyed. While in decent phase the missile travels a minimum of mach 4.

Submarine launched missiles are fired from VLS tubes using a buoyant launch capsule. The missile glides to the surface where the capsule lid blows and the missile's booster ignites launching the missile. The capsule is launched by pressure.

Warheads:
MK-3 - 1000 lbs (454 kg) Thermobaric

Tigershark Stealth Cruise Missile
Image


Overview:

The Tigershark cruise missile is a state of the art design marrying composite materials, low observable design, advanced guidance system and artificial intelligence. Designed as a cruise missile capable of being launched from air, land and sea, the Tigershark is capable of attacking a wide range of targets. It is designed to provide a high probability of mission success and pinpoint accuracy against technically sophisticated enemies.

Tigershark cruise missiles have been used by the Libertarian Governance Defense Forces and by countries around the world to conduct devastating air or sea launched attacks on shipping and land based targets. Targets available to the Tigershark include airfields, command and control facilities, anti-aircraft batteries, infrastructure and mobile targets such as armored columns.

The Tigershark is all the more lethal due to the large number of launch platforms available. The Tigershark can be fitted to most fighter, attack and bomber aircraft. Additionally, the missile can be launched by ship, submarine and the Spartan Multiple Launch Rocket System.

Airframe:

The airframe of the Tigershark is a designed taking into account low observance throughout the entire spectrum of sensors systems available to a potential enemy. The airframe makes use of radar absorbent materials, carbon fiber and stealth shaping techniques so as not to compromise its aerodynamics while lowering the RCS.

The airframe is a blended semi-cylindrical body blended to allow good area ruling and low drag. The wings and V tail are kept folded during transport and extend as the missile leaves the launcher. The missile utilizes a conformal S-shaped intake duct that uses radar-absorbent material to shield the compressor fan from reflecting radar waves. The engine flows through a cylindrical trough lined with heat ablating tiles to shield the exhaust from infrared (IR) missile detection. A series of paints and coatings with a metal oxide based topcoat protect the missile against a broad range of infra-red and laser wavelengths. Radar cross section reduction is aided as well.

Guidance, Networking and Artificial Intelligence:

The Tigershark uses a sophisticated guidance system designed to provide exceptionally high accuracy. It begins with a GPS guidance system that is aided by inertial navigation. The GPS uses an anti-jam null steering antenna system. Targeting information is dumped into the missile during the programming phase where GPS coordinates from the launch vehicle to the target are generated. Immediately after a GPS path is chosen TERCOM maps are loaded into the system.

Due to the network centric design the weapon can utilize other platform and sensor information to identify, track and strike a target and receives constant updating of targeting information. During flight the Tigershark updates its targeting database constantly through encrypted network link.

A wide range of targeting information can be entered into the missiles strike profile database. This includes scans of the target, vulnerable areas, areas of least resistance (like flying into windows or doors), air defense systems in place and steps to defeat them, secondary targets. which can be identified and prioritized by type or location. The missile can be directed to any of 15 pre-programmed alternate targets autonomously through parameters assigned to the strike profile or by direction over two way combat network link.

During its flight to target the Tigershark uses a sophisticated laser altimeter system to allow it to hug the surface. As the missile travels the laser altimeter system scans the area forward, under and to the sides of the missile. The system is accurate enough to distinguish between the surface and vegetation and can keep the missile at a height of 3 to 5 meters above the surface.

The unique side scan is designed to allow the missile to take better advantage of terrain features to conceal its flight. A Tigershark can be programmed to fly through a canyon or a tunnel and then pop out and attack a target.

Terminal phase guidance includes a millimeter wave AESA radar which initially acquires the target. The radar has an elevation of +/- 120° and an azimuth of +/- 120°/120°. The radar features mapping capability using synthetic aperture radar (SAR), real beam and doppler beam narrowing modes with very high resolutions. The radar can detect and track with measurement of range and speed both moving and static ground and naval targets.

An imaging infrared (IIR) seeker located in a conformal low RCS pod at the bottom of the radar system scans the area for its target while comparing its data to the information in its strike profile database and off the combat network. The C - QWIP Focal Plane Array has elevation of +/- 12° and an azimuth of +/- 15°. The use of QWIP (Quantum Well Imaging Photodetector) allows a single chip to concurrently image targets in two infrared color bands while permitting the added benefit of allowing for tailored infrared color sensitivity. The focal plane array is composed of 5 - 1024 x 1024 corrugated QWIPs (C-QWIPs) using inclined micromirrors on the detector sidewalls to reflect light into parallel propagation thereby creating the necessary vertical field required for QWIP usage. Efficiency is enhanced due to the wide range of wavelength bands and high quantum efficiency of the array. This provides highly detailed imaging.

The Tigershark makes a comparison of the information from both sensor systems to execute its kill. This gives the Tigershark the capacity for independent detection, recognition, and discrimination of targets at sea or on land and pinpoint accuracy.

The weapon is able to estimate damage and effect from the strikes of other weapons by counting the numbers of missiles that successfully strike designated targets. This is accomplished by each Tigershark being programmed to transmit a high-power signal prior to detonation. Thus a Tigershark can re-target itself on nearby secondary targets according to previously set parameters should its primary target be determined to have been sufficiently damaged by other weapons.

Submarine launched missiles are fired from VLS tubes using a buoyant launch capsule. The missile glides to the surface where the capsule lid blows and the missile's booster ignites launching the missile. The capsule is launched by pressure.

The Tigershark uses fibre optic cabling and circuitry composed of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) for protection against electromagnetic interference or EMP attack where possible. Additional protections are provided by utilization of antennas and power connections with surge protectors designed specifically to defend against EMP attack, the optical inputs have conductive coatings over them and all doors and wiring/tubing pathways through protective shielding is sealed with conductive gaskets.

Flight Profile:

After being launched into the air by a solid rocket booster which is jettisoned upon burning out or dropped from its carrier aircraft the missile is propelled to its target in high subsonic speed by a liquid-fueled turbojet. The missile immediately takes up an attitude of 3 to 5 meters above the surface and proceeds by GPS/Inertial and TERCOM guidance to its target area.

The Tigershark utilizes bank and turn flight and as it approaches the target area it enters terminal phase. In terminal phase the Tigershark will switch to its radar and IIR guidance system. If it is programmed to attack a mobile target or deliver SWARM munitions it will pop up to 45 meters. Here it has a wider field of view for its sensors to acquire the target and execute the attack.

If it is attacking a ship or a static position then it remains at its low altitude during its attack run. However, there are a couple of options available and still others that are warhead specific. First, it can be set to either impact a ship at the waterline or to top attack a ship. This can be programmed during the strike profile to leave the missile an autonomous choice. For example, if a missile detected that there were two top attacks on a cruiser it was targeting it could decide based on mission parameters to send its warhead in at the waterline.

During top attack mode at a range of 1500 meters the missile will climb to an attitude of 30 meters before tipping over and diving onto the the target. This often has the effect of throwing off CIWS as well as hitting sections of ships carrying lighter armor. Top attack mode can be utilized on other targets as well. During its last 10 km the missile will execute a series of random maneuvers to make it harder for CIWS to engage.

ASP HARM
Image
The ASP HARM (High Speed Anti-Radiation Missile) is designed to destroy surface to air missile radars and can detect, attack and destroy a radar antenna or transmitter with minimal aircrew input. The proportional guidance system that homes in on enemy radar emissions has a fixed antenna and seeker head in the missile's nose. A smokeless, solid-propellant, dual-thrust rocket motor propels the missile at Mach 3.0. Weapon features passive radar homing with the ability to home-on-jamming sources and backup active radar homing. 68 kilograms (150 lb) direct fragmentation warhead is detonated either by contact or laser proximity fuse.

The ASP has autonomous detection (not dependent on aircraft radar warning receivers) and target recognition (Target ID) capability. The seeker supports a conformal antenna and Millimeter Wave (MMW) seeker as well. With the two seekers ASP supports 'blended strike solutions', implementing INS/GPS for midcourse navigation and active or passive RF techniques for the terminal phase (active MMW or passive RF seeker).

The missile can 'memorize' a target signature and location, therefore pursuing the attack even when the target ceases to emit (switched off). It also has the ability to employ a selective aimpoint, by attacking the target's most vulnerable parts (i.e. the processor) rather than the emitting elements (radar antennae). The weapon's geolocation capability enables the ASP to memorize Impact Avoidance Zones (IAZ), eliminating much of the risks of fratricides and collateral damage typically restricting the use of standoff weapons in close proximity to friendly forces or in situations where the risk of collateral damage is too high. As a fully netted weapon, the ASP's uses an Integrated Broadcast Service Receiver (IBS-R) enabling the missile to receive target updates from remote sources throughout its flight.

Spectre BVRAAM
Image
Spectre is an active radar guided beyond-visual-range air to air missile with three to six times the kinematic performance of air/air missiles of its type due to its throttleable ducted rocket (ramjet) motor. Spectre is designed to offer a multi-shot capability against long range maneuvering targets in a heavy electronic countermeasures (ECM) environment and provide air superiority against a range of fixed and rotary wing targets including UAVs, stealth aircraft and cruise missiles.

A single fighter, equipped with an operational load of Spectre BVRAAM missiles, has the potential to destroy even the most maneuverable of fighters well before they reach combat range, and simultaneously engage bombers at long range. Targets are prioritized prior to launch, and the missiles are fired towards the predicted interception points. The Spectre uses active radar target tracking, proportional navigation guidance, and active Radio Frequency (RF) target detection coupled with an active LADAR seeker. It employs active, semi-active, and inertial navigational methods of guidance to provide an autonomous launch and leave capability against single and multiple targets in all environments. Targeting information can be updated, via the data-link, throughout the entire flight - either from the launch aircraft or from third party sources such as AWACs, surface radar or satellites. At the appropriate time, the Spectre’s active LADAR seeker autonomously searches for and locks onto the target. The missile is now fully autonomous, making its own decisions to home in on the target, despite any evasive maneuvers, decoys or sophisticated electronic countermeasures. Capable of 60 G maneuvers.

Spike AMRAAM
Image
The Spike AMRAAM is a sophisticated short and medium ranged air to air infrared-guided (heat-seeking) missile with a sensitive, cryogenic cooled seeker with a substantial "off-boresight" capability: the seeker can "see" targets up to 60° off the missile's centerline. It can be targeted by a helmet-mounted sight (HMS) allowing pilots to designate targets by looking at them. Minimum engagement range is about 300 meters, with maximum range of nearly 48.28 km (30 mi) at altitude.

The Spike has a simple but highly effective thrust vectoring system allowing 45 G maneuvers. It is equipped with advanced improved IRCCM (Infra red counter counter measures) and at long range is targeted by the aircraft's sensors using inertial data on the targets speed and course to proceed towards the predicted interception points. Once it closes the infra-red seeker takes over with the ability to monitor and utilize the aircraft target data as well as third party data from AWACs, satellites and surface units. Lock on is provided by an imaging infra-red seeker using a C - QWIP Focal Plane Array.

The QWIP (Quantum Well Imaging Photodetector) allows a single chip to concurrently image targets in two infrared color bands while permitting the added benefit of allowing for tailored infrared color sensitivity. This is the same seeker used on the fire and forget version of the Puma 2 and uses a focal plane array composed of 5 - 1024 x 1024 corrugated QWIPs (C-QWIPs) using inclined micromirrors on the detector sidewalls to reflect light into parallel propagation. This creates the necessary vertical field required for QWIP usage. With a wide range of wavelength bands and high quantum efficiency the Focal Plane Array is capable of highly detailed imaging.

In flight the infra-red imaging system compares the target image to the information in its targeting database which gives the missile a high probability to identify and disregard countermeasures. The missile makes use of proportional navigation to over correct for the targets course changes in order to achieve a high probability of intercept. The Spike is fully re-programmable by use of either a USB connection or flash drive or through information relayed over the combat network and can have mission/theater specific targeting and counter measure data loaded into its database.

The Spike uses a 11.34 kg (25 lbs) directed energy blast fragmentation warhead. This warhead is composed of multiple detonators encased in a contoured fragmentation casing. This arrangement is designed to optimize the initial available explosive energy and efficiently transfer that energy into high velocity fragments.

An added benefit of the multiple detonators is that fragments can be focused more effectively. For example, when both ends are detonated the fragmentation pattern forms an isotropic annular disk and fragmentation occurs in a forward or aft conical disk when detonated on either end. During its terminal flight the Spike will drop off the heat source and direct the missile towards the most vulnerable point of the target as directed by the onboard targeting database.

The Spike system is extremely accurate and capable especially against low signature targets and in environments with high clutter or counter measures. The missile is designed to image low observable aircraft and missile.

With the focal plane array utilizing Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) it was determined that the system should be hardened against EMP attack. All Spike missiles uses Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) circuitry while antenna and power supply wiring make use of surge protectors designed specifically to defend against EMP attack. The launch unit, DAU and missiles use fiber optic cabling where ever possible and are sealed with conductive gaskets.

A navalized version of the weapon is used for point, short and medium range defense by naval vessels. The missiles are designated Spike - S and are launched from rotating rolling airframe defense turrets composed of 12 missile tubes each. The naval version can be guided by external sensors.

Cerebus ATGM
Image
The Cerebus ATGM is an advanced air-launched anti-tank guided missile designed to meet the LGDF's requirement for a long range anti-armor weapon, allowing strike aircraft to attack tanks and armored vehicles at stand-off range. Cerebus is a fire and forget missile, which is loaded with targeting data by the launch aircraft prior to launch. It is programmable to adapt to particular mission requirements. This capability includes the ability to find targets within a certain area (such as those near friendly forces), and to self-destruct if it is unable to find a target within the designated area. This information is provided by network link by AWACS, aircraft, surface units and troops.

The missile's advanced sensors and artificial intelligence package includes its millimeter wave radar (MMW), which allows the weapon to image the target and find the most effective location on the target to impact. The bandwidth of the MMW radar gives Cerebus an all weather capability. In addition to the semi-autonomous ability to decide its own targets, the Cerebus has the capacity to determine where on a target to best impact causing the most damage to eliminate the target. The seeker incorporates a terrain avoidance capability, allowing it to cruise at a fixed height above the ground.

A Tandem Shaped Charge warhead employs a smaller initial charge, designed to defeat reactive armor, followed by a larger, more destructive charge, designed to penetrate and defeat the base armor.

Nova Anti-Satellite Missile
Image
The Nova Anti-Satellite Missile designed to destroy satellites for strategic military purposes. The Nova features a three stage missile with an infrared homing kinetic energy warhead. The Nova is carried to an altitude of 60,000 feet by a modified Valkyrie IDS. The Valkyrie is out fitted with a set of mission specific sensors that through their networked capability can determine the location, speed and orbital path of an enemy satellite. Once that information is gathered it is transferred to the Nova missile and a launch occurs. The missile uses inertial navigation to proceed to an intercept point at which time a cryogenic cooled infra red seeker takes over.

The MHV guidance system tracks targets in a 60 degree field of view of the infrared sensor and uses information from the detector to maneuver and null out any course changes by the target. A Bang-bang control system is used to fire 80 full charge maneuvering rocket motors arranged around the circumference of the MHV. Additionally four pods at the rear of the MHV contain small attitude control rocket motors. These motors are used to dampen off center rotation by the MHV.

SWARM Munition
LG Defense prides itself on highly lethal systems that enable small armies to kill large numbers of enemy troops with efficiency and utmost prejudice. One key component of our systems has always been their smart nature. The ability to independently determine the best target and through networking to maximize their impact on the degradation of enemy forces.

Image


SWARM Munitions take that intelligence to new heights as they are designed to be delivered deep behind enemy lines by a variety of aircraft dispensers, artillery dispensers and missile dispensers where they loiter then autonomously track and kill the enemy. The SWARM munition is designed to provide capability to attack deep, high-payoff and time critical targets such as armored units, self propelled artillery, supply convoys and other high value targets.

Warhead:
The primary warhead is the SWARM’s 8.4 kg (18.5lbs) Hellraiser. This warhead combines the ability to take out tanks, Soft stationary and soft mobile targets. Hellraiser utilizes a reactive jet-shaped charge. The result is a high velocity jet that can penetrate and utterly destroy armor while providing a cluster bomb effect on surrounding equipment and personnel.

In a conventional shaped charge explosive surround a hollow cone made of copper. When the explosive detonates, the cone is converted into a high-speed jet that does the damage. In the SWARM we have replaced the copper with a reactive material, which releases energy as it is driven forward. This jet has a much greater destructive power. Although penetration is not increased damage to the penetrated material and lethality are greatly enhanced.

The SWARM counters the advent of explosive reactive armor (ERA). ERA panels lie over a vehicle’s main armor and explode when struck by a warhead. This explosion does not harm the vehicle’s main armor, but causes steel panels to fly into the path of the antitank round’s jet, so that the jet expends its most potent energy cutting through the panels, rather than through the main armor. The SWARM uses two shaped-charge warheads in tandem. The conventional precursor charge sets off the ERA and clears it from the path of the main Hellraiser charge, which then penetrates the target’s primary armor. A two-layered molybdenum liner is used for the precursor and a reactive nanoparticle composition of aluminum in a polytetrafluroethylene matrix for the main charge.

To protect the main charge from the explosive blast, shock, and debris caused by the impact of the missile's nose and the detonation of the precursor charge, a blast shield of composite material is used between the main and precursor charge. The second charge causes the SWARM casing and its reactive material liner to detonate in a cloud of fragmentation. The fragments ignite on impact, releasing their energy inside the target. This gives a corresponding increase in the chance of causing catastrophic damage.

The destructive power of reactive fragments are similar to a cluster bomb attack with the exception that there is no danger afterward. This makes the warhead exceptionally lethal when used on structures or personnel in the area of effect. The SWARM can kill heavily armored vehicles and tanks and is effective on softer targets as well.

Image


Guidance:
The advanced sensors and artificial intelligence package includes a combination of millimeter wave radar (MMW) coupled with an imaging infrared (IIR) seeker using a QWIP (Quantum Well Imaging Photodetector) and an onboard target database, which allows the weapon to image the target and find the most effective location on the target to impact. The bandwidth of the MMW radar gives SWARM an all weather capability. In addition to the capacity for independent detection, recognition, and discrimination of targets, the SWARM has the capacity to determine where on a target to best impact causing the most damage to eliminate the target.

The QWIP (Quantum Well Imaging Photodetector) allow a single chip to concurrently image targets in two infrared color bands, and permit tailored infrared color sensitivity. This allows the SWARM to utilize a focal plane array composed of 5 - 1024 x 1024 corrugated QWIPs (C-QWIPs) using inclined micromirrors on the detector sidewalls to reflect light into parallel propagation, thus creating the vertical field. This FPA has a wide range of wavelength bands and high quantum efficiency.

A digital autopilot provides mid-course guidance using data from the network link. The digital autopilot with a high accuracy digital inertial measurement system provides the high precision navigation to locate targets at long range and in off-boresight operations. This is coupled with the ability of the bomblets to communicate with each other and other weapon packages. The AI can share sensor data with other bomblets and other platforms, determine what weapons hit their targets by having each bomblet emit a high pitched tone at impact and thereby effectively deliver devastating hits on enemy forces. Like all networked systems the SWARM uses unique hardware encoded keyfiles and a launcher generated keyfile coupled with cascaded ciphers using individual randomly generated keys.

Delivery Platform:
The SWARM is delivered by a variety of platforms with its primary delivery system being the Seahag Hypersonic Cruise missile. Each Seahag can carry 16 SWARM munitions to its target. Prior to dispense, the SWARM thermal battery is initiated, the flight software and mission parameters are downloaded, and the IMU is aligned. After dispense the SWARM stabilizes itself, slows to acquisition speeds, and deploys its aerodynamic surfaces. The SWARM acquires the target or target groups, glides to the immediate target area and selects an individual vehicle to be engaged, ensuring that not all SWARMs pick the same target. A top down, hit-to-kill terminal profile is prosecuted toward a selected vulnerable region of the targeted vehicle. On impact, the tandem conventional shaped-charge warhead is detonated, assuring an M, F, or K-kill and collectively securing delay, disruption or destruction of the targeted enemy unit.

The SWARM may be deployed by the following systems:

Seahag Hypersonic Cruise Missile: 16 SWARM munitions
Tigershark Cruise Missile: 8 SWARM munitions
300mm MLRS Rocket: 4 SWARM munitions
160mm Howitzer Round: 2 SWARM munitions

Advanced Robotics

Postby Libertarian Governance » Sat Oct 31, 2009 6:10 am

Advanced Robotics features our collection of advanced unmanned vehicles. Many leading technology firms assist with the development of the sophisticated AI systems and processors that power these incredible machines.

Insect Spy
Image
Micro air vehicles (MAVs), are able to buzz over enemy territory nearly unnoticed by the enemy troops below. These MAVs are designed to mimic the flying motions of insects, including flies, bees and dragonflies. At only 10 to 25 mm in width and weighing a scant 43mg this device can send back audio and video signals as far as 6.2 miles (10 km). Solar power runs a piezoelectric actuator that will push the wings to flap giving the bug movement or the system can operate on battery power.

This small flying vehicle can not only relay images of troop movements, but it can also be used to detect biological, chemical or nuclear weapons. Additionally, the robotic insect can land on an enemy vehicle, position or soldier and place an electronic tag on it so it could be more easily targeted. The Black version of the MAV is capable of injecting a chemical into enemy personnel, with a small needle much like a mosquito, to bring about incapacitation or death.

Pack of 12 MAVs and 1 controller : 1,200,000 NSD

Squid UUV
Image
The Squid UUV is the most advanced UUV in the LGDF arsenal. It is designed to conduct Mine Warfare (MIW); Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR); and undersea environmental sensing and mapping. It can achieve extremely deep depths of 10,000 feet (3048 m) and is nearly undetectable as a result of its design and battery powered propulsion. The Squid UUV can be deployed by Wwyvn S helecopters, E-7 aircraft, surface ships and submarines by their torpedo tubes. It is 12.5 feet (3.81 m) in lenght and 660mm in diameter.

The Squid UUV has an advanced AI system for autonomous operation or optionally can be tethered and controlled by fiber optic cable. Equipped with a variety of passive systems and no light video cameras. Electro-Magnetic (EM) sensors passively scan the radio frequency spectrum for intentional electronic transmissions from hostile forces. MAD sensors are used to detect the natural and manmade differences in the Earth's magnetic fields caused by large ferrous objects. Passive sonar is also used. The Squad can electronically tag enemy vessels and mines and be used to relay targeting information to aircraft, subs and ships.

The Squid UUV propels itself by wiggling like a fish. Metal muscles made of alloys that remember shapes are connected to evenly spaced vertebrae and shrink and expand as much as 8 percent as they're alternately heated and cooled, causing the sectioned hull to bend and flex. The result: No ripple evidence on the surface of the sub's presence, making it much quieter than today's vessels. Powered by advanced batteries with a life of 4 hours and a speed of 5 knots.

The Squid UUV can navigate using an underwater acoustic positioning system. When operating within a net of sea floor deployed baseline transponders; this is known as (LBL) navigation. When a surface reference such as a support ship is available, ultra-short baseline (USBL) or short-baseline (SBL) positioning is used to calculate where the subsea vehicle is relative to the known (GPS) position of the surface craft by means of acoustic range and bearing measurements. When it is operating completely autonomously, the The Squid UUV will surface and take its own GPS fix. Between position fixes and for precise maneuvering, an inertial navigation system onboard the The Squid UUV measures the acceleration of the vehicle and Doppler velocity technology is used to measure rate of travel. A pressure sensor measures the vertical position. These observations are filtered to determine a final navigation solution.

Shrec Advanced Weapon System

Postby Libertarian Governance » Sat Oct 31, 2009 6:11 am

Image


Overview:

The Shrec Advanced Weapon System comprises a family of weapons designed to address all of the needs of a modern infantry squad. The Shrec Advanced Weapon System includes a compact carbine, a standard carbine, a designated marksman and an automatic rifle. This goal was to develop a modular weapon system using the CL6.3 - 40 round that would be lighter weight, have improved reliability and greater lethality then existing systems.

The key advantages of The Shrec Advanced Weapon System include:

* Tactical flexibility. The Shrec Advanced Weapon System is designed to allow the use of different barrels and other modules that can be swapped quickly depending on operational requirements.
* Unified caliber. The same basic caliber (6.3mm x 40mm) is used throughout the entire weapon range, from compact carbines that function as PDWs to machineguns. This allows every soldier to use any magazine and greatly simplifies logistics.
* Lighter Weight. The Shrec Advanced Weapon System is on average 45% lighter than comparable weapon systems using cased ammunition. As a result soldiers can carry more ammunition into combat. Less weight means greater mobility and survivability for soldiers. Advanced materials further lower the weight of the weapon while increasing the weapons durability.
* Active recoil system. The Shrec Advanced Weapon System includes a gas-operated system that uses a floating rear recoil system. This makes the weapon extremely accurate and controllable even during automatic fire.
* A comprehensive accessory system. Shrec Advanced Weapon System has 3 to 6 Combat Accessory Attachment Points for external accessories. An appropriately wide selection of accessories is offered, ranging from electronic scopes to side loading grenade launchers.

Currently the Advanced Weapon System includes:

- AWS Designated Marksman Rifle
- AWS Tactical Carbine
- AWS Compact Carbine
- AWS Automatic Rifle

History
Shrec Ballistic Systems has been involved in a great deal of research involving monolithic-solid, liquid monopropellant and binary liquid propellants. Of particular interest was the work performed on the so called superguns for the Libertarian Governance nuclear weapons program and with advanced artillery rounds. Like many firearm designers it was evident that a major change in firearm capability and effectiveness was going to come about short term by a change in the ammunition.

Looking at the history of firearm development one could see the evolution from wheellocks to percussion caps to cartridges for example. Along with the improvement in the design of the round came a corresponding improvement in accuracy and lethality.

Shrec decided that it would move the Advanced Weapons System forward by utilizing a new case-less cartridge. The companies pioneering efforts had led to the development of a case-less propellant that was in fact a desensitized high explosive similar to Semtex, carefully formulated to generate progressive burning rather than a sudden pressure peak. The resulting monolithic-grain propellant was closer to a solid rocket propellant grain than a powder charge. This propellant, HITP3, showed great muzzle velocity but it had problems with moisture and handling when mated to the early rifle prototypes.

Numerous problems appeared during testing of the earliest prototypes. The high velocity of the rounds caused high wear on the barrels, heat in the chamber was another problem making the weapons prone to cooking off rounds, and the ammunition was both fragile and affected by moister making handling and storage a nightmare.

Gunther Janke, a senior engineer at Shrec who was involved in the companies rail gun development efforts at the time, came up with an extreme solution during a discussion with project leader Mark Meyers. According to Janke the problem wasn't using a case-less munition but it was using a case-less munition in what was still a largely conventional weapon and further trying to use an unconventional round in a conventional fashion. Janke advocated the use of exotic materials and processes coupled with a reformulation of the round to take advantage of plasma ignition with the goal of squeezing every bit of muzzle velocity out of the round.

Mark Meyers had Janke transferred to the Advanced Weapon Project and within six months the company fielded a revolutionary design as prototype 3. Prototype 3 was aided by the LGDF having captured a large number of Brotherhood of Steel R2 rifles during an attack on a slave state. These rifles were reversed engineered and the lessons learned from their design aided Gunther and his team in developing their own unique solutions.

The new design had a slightly redesigned action and used exotic materials and processes to take full advantage of the high muzzle velocities possible with monograin propellants. Utilizing barrels with refractory metal composite liners of molybdenum-rhenium (Mo-Re) and titanium overwrapping the AWS took the firearm to a new level of lethality and reliability.

The first public trials of prototype 3 left members of the Libertarian Governance government and military wide mouthed and shocked as Gunther Janke fired the AWS one handed on full auto. Not only did the weapon show an outstanding level of control but the exceptionally high fire rate and the high velocity of the rounds were so great that STANAG level II armored plate was literally cut to shreds.

Design

The materials used to build the AWS result in an extremely rugged weapon. The ergonomics are enhanced by placing the magazine at the weapons center of gravity. Integrated as standard equipment is a 3.5x electronic red dot scope which includes both an IR laser and pointer. Other improvements include an electronic bullet counter that shows the number of rounds available in a magazine at any given time and a dataport that allows for a hardwired connection by fiber optic cabling to a HUD type combat helmet or other device.

The AWS has fully ambidextrous operating controls to include a centrally located charging handle that doubles as an ambidextrous forward assist by insuring alignment of chamber, barrel and firing system when required, ambidextrous magazine release, safety/selector lever with safe, semi and full automatic 1 and full automatic 2 modes of fire and release lever for the multiple position collapsible stock.

The operating controls allow the operator to keep the firing hand on the pistol grip and the weapon in the firing position at all times while the non-firing hand actuates the charging handle and magazine during loading and clearing. The floating rear active recoil system reduces the felt recoil from the high velocity rounds substantially resulting in improved accuracy across all firing modes.

The basic strength of the design is the ability to buy one weapon that performs every function needed by the infantry squad. By simply changing barrels, a few internal components and exterior accessories the basic Designated Marksman rifle can be configured as a compact carbine, a carbine or an automatic rifle. Not only does this allow greater tactical versatility but it also facilitates quick repairs in the field.

Mechanism

The AWS uses a twin chamber rotating breech. The entire action is powered by gas drive, which has annual gas piston, located around the barrel. With the chamber empty the rifle is manually cocked for the first shot. In this position the chamber block is in its lowest position, aligned with the topmost round in magazine. A loading piston feeds the first round rearward from the magazine and into the rotating breech. The breech then rotates 180 degrees clockwise and aligns itself with the barrel. This completes the chambering of the round and charging of the electric firing pin.

Once the trigger is pulled the electronic firing system ignites the high temperature propellant. As the bullet begins accelerating up the barrel, recoil forces drive the barrel, chamber and operating mechanism rearwards within the weapon. This begins to put a load on the twin recoil springs. Simultaneously the rearward travel presses against a plunger that drives a small though highly efficient electrical generator. This plunger captures kinetic energy, or the energy of motion, from the movement of the recoil system and charges the weapons electrical system. The rear floating recoil system dissipates energy for single shot and fully automatic modes.

Gas tapped off from the barrel rotates the breech and actuates the loading mechanism then rotates the breech 180 degrees clockwise until it is lined up with the feed mechanism and the process repeats.

During a jam or misfire the charging handle is used to load a new round and simultaneously, the misfired round is pushed rearward out of the chamber and when cleared from the chamber, the round simply falls down out of the rifle via the ejection port. The ejection port is located just behind the trigger and can be set to eject right or left.

Plasma Ignition System

A Plasma ignition system delivers energy to a small discharge cavity located in the tip of the igniter. When a discharge is initiated, the air within the cavity are ionized and expand. The pressure increase caused by the expanding ionized gas emits a jet of plasma from a small opening in the cavity. This plasma contacts the rear of the case-less round igniting the booster charge.

The use of Plasma as the ignition source has several advantages for a case-less weapon. First, the ammunition as is the case in the AWS can be made insensitive and will only ignite at very high temperatures. This is important due to the high heat inherent in case-less systems, especially on automatic fire. Other big improvements a lock time that is almost instant and a perfect and safe trigger with no creep, no perceptible travel and consistent break.

Electrical System

The electrical system of the Shrec Advanced Weapon System is designed to provide enough power internally to charge its electronic firing pin after each shot and to keep both the integrated scope and exhaust fan functioning. The Shrec does this by harnessing the wasted energy of the rifles recoil process to produce energy. As the rifle recoils the floating internal mechanism pushes against a spring loaded plunger. This plunger is attached to an internal generator and its movement causes a magnet to rotate inside of a coil of wires.

The resulting action is the generation of more energy than is consumed during the firing of the electronic ignition system. Surplus energy charges a matrix of supercapacitors that are installed within the weapon. Firing a magazine of CL6.3-40 rounds will produce enough stored energy to keep the weapon and its scope operating for a full day.

An auxiliary lithium-titanate battery can be installed into the bottom of the pistol grip. When installed this battery will be constantly charged by the internal generator. The system is designed so that battery power will operate the weapon even in the event of a failure elsewhere in the electrical system. The batteries are rapidly replaceable.
In addition to the batteries the AWS can be manually charged by using the charging handle. When the charging handle is pulled it compresses the charging systems plunger which in turn provides a charge to activate the firing system.

Weapon Construction

Carbon fiber is used in the weapons stock, receiver, handguards and pistol grip to reduce overall weight. The receiver while being largely composed of CFRP and uses low alloy steels in critical areas. The twin chamber rotating breech is composed of a low alloy chromium-molybdenum steel. The resulting chamber is fairly light weight, high strength and capable of handling the high heat environment of the case-less weapon system.

Standard gun steel and chromium plated gun steel barrels suffer from several disadvantages. They possess high weight, have poor thermal management, and suffer from microcracks and porosity in the electro deposited chromium that allow hot propellant gas to degrade the steel. The barrels and liners also suffer erosion effects when hyper velocity rounds and high rates of fire are present. These are major contributors to the cost of firearms ownership by any military.

The Shrec Advanced Weapon System in all configurations use heavy fluted barrels composed of a liner of molybdenum-rhenium (Mo-Re) which is mated to titanium. The barrel manufacturing process begins when molybdenum-rhenium rods composed of 47.5% Mo are deep hole drilled using electrical discharge machining. The drilling accomplishes two things. First it adds the cooling system to the barrel liner. This cooling system is composed of 25 half circle longitudinal channels drilled into the liner. The Titanium is then added to the Mo-Re rod by Plasma Transfer Arc Spray. The barrel is then deep hole drilled to form, the bore.

Image


The rifling is then added. The Shrec uses a polygonal rifling which provides a number of advantages, These include not compromising the barrel's thickness in the area of each groove, a better gas seal around the projectile as polygonal bores tend to have a slightly smaller bore area, which translates into more efficient use of the combustion gases trapped behind the bullet, greater consistency in muzzle velocities, less bullet deformation, resulting in reduced drag on the bullet when traveling through the barrel which helps to increase muzzle velocity, less buildup of debris in the barrel and prolonged barrel life due to lower barrel stress. An integrated flash suppressor is included.

The Shrec case features quick release bolts that remain in place when unlocked on many external components. This provides for very quick break down of the weapon into its separate components. Internally, replaceable systems are removable in modules. These modules can be replaced with other modules that make for fast configuration changes.

In order to mount attachments the Shrec AWS uses a proprietary rail system called Combat Attachment Points. The CAPs are designed for mounting auxiliary equipment such as telescopic sights, tactical lights, laser aiming modules, night vision devices, reflex sights, foregrips, bipods, and bayonets. CAPs uses the top surface of the rail for the alignment and reference of the accessory which provides excellent repeatability. Meaning that once a scope is zeroed, for example, it can be removed. When the scope is later replaced on the weapon there will be no need to re-zero the scope.

Active Cooling:

Heat is handled in several ways within the Shrec AWS. First there is the fluted barrel design. The fluted barrel will definitely dissipate heat quickly. This is due to the heat being allowed to reach the outside temperature at a faster rate by removing materials. But the real cooling is provided by a recirculating liquid cooling system filled with ethylene glycol. This may sound sophisticated but it is actually a miniature version of the integral midwall cooling systems used on heavy artillery guns such as the LG Defense Systems Warhammer.

Its simple, the circumferentially spaced cooling channels are drilled into the liner during the barrel build process using electrical discharge machining. The liner has a circumferentially located annular space front and rear that intersect the cooling channels. These are also placed by EDM and further connect to radially inwardly projecting ports extending from the titanium jacket.

This is an integrated assembly due to the application of titanium through the plasma transfer arc spray process. Titanium is further built up along the surface to form a fitting to which braided steel hose is attached. The hoses connect to the radiator/heat exchanger built into a space over the barrel and chamber. The heat exchanger features copper fins and a pump driven by the weapons recoil energy.

The Shrec then uses airflow optimization to supply cool air to the hot components as directly as possible. A near silent fluid bearing fan is mounted at the front of the radiator to blow extract hot air out the weapon and away at the front of the receiver. With the air flowing rear to front the hot chamber air is also evacuated by the exhaust fan. The exhaust fan activates by temperature sensor and it can be cut off by a switch at the bottom of the receiver. The weapons floating recoil system helps to evacuate propellant heat from the chambers of the rotating breech during its movement.

Finally, there are two finishing touches added to the rifle. The first is our patented AC-3 dry lubricant system that is used to coat all internal parts and the barrel. AC-3 is the controlled atmospheric application of a proprietary formulated, modified tungsten disulfide. When the tungsten disulfide is applied in lamellar form through our precision process it forms a thin, uniform coating that forms a molecular bond with the substrate, and will not chip, flake or peel. It is inert,inorganic, non-toxic, non-corrosive and resistant to most petrochemical fuels, solvents and acids. Yet it is compatible will all wet lubricants. The final addition to the rifle is the external finish which is a ceramic powder coating which can be matched to any camouflage pattern desired.

Available 6.3 x 40mm Ammunition

M901

The cartridge is intended for use against personnel and light armored targets. This is a training standard round used in both training and combat.The M901 cartridge uses a 120-grain bullet with gilded copper-jacket and a solid lead core behind a stacked-cone tungsten carbide penetrator. The round is excellent against light armored targets while still affording significant expansion in soft tissue. The HITP3A propellant is a formulation using 80% HMX with an elastomer binder in a hydrophobic polymer.

M903

The cartridge is intended for use against personnel and unarmored targets. This is a training standard round used in both training and combat. The M903 features a 120-grain skived tipped bullet with a progressively tapered copper jacket that is locked to a solid lead core to promote a perfectly controlled 2X expansion and high weight retention upon impact. The M903 bullet retains up to 95% of its original weight with maximum penetration and energy transfer. The HITP3A propellant is a formulation using 80% HMX with an elastomer binder in a hydrophobic polymer.

M905

The tracer is intended to permit visible observation of the bullet's in-flight path or trajectory to the point of impact. Its main uses are for observation of fire, incendiary effect, and signaling. This is a training standard round used in both training and combat. The M905 delivers a visible green light signature through its trajectory. The M905 features a 120-grain skived tipped bullet with a progressively tapered copper jacket that is locked to a solid lead core to promote a perfectly controlled 2X expansion and high weight retention upon impact. The M903 bullet retains up to 95% of its original weight with maximum penetration and energy transfer. The HITP3A propellant is a formulation using 80% HMX with an elastomer binder in a hydrophobic polymer.

M907

The cartridge is intended for use against personnel and unarmored targets. This is a training standard round used in both training and combat. The M907 features a 100 -grain bullet with a special thin-wall jacket, precision compressed lead shot core and soft polymer tip providing optimum balance between penetration and fragmentation. The round maximizes stopping power by the complete dispersal of the bullet energy into the intended target with immediate shock and tissue destroying trauma. This rapid fragmentation delivers the energy to a large area while eliminating the dangers of over penetration. The HITP3A propellant is a formulation using 80% HMX with an elastomer binder in a hydrophobic polymer.

Price: NS $12,000

DPR: NS $ 100,000,000,000

DPR includes DPR on caseless ammunition.
Orders of 100,000 rifles include DPR on all ammunition.
