Research Area 11: Missile Carriage and Release Technologies

The objective of this work is to investigate high density carriage concepts for weapon bay applications. Topics of interest include weapon racks that use innovative carriage and ejection technologies capable of carrying and releasing multiple small missiles. Technologies of interest also include high data rate aircraft to weapon communications, pod architecture, and aircraft to weapon power conversion and distribution systems. Other topics of interest include blind mate or recessed aircraft to weapon or rack to weapon connectors.
