AIAA Aircraft Design Team 2

Eric Fuchs & Nancy Fung

October 31, 2006

A/C Design Class


Weapons Control

Link between aircraft and weapons

Controls weapon release

Targeting Systems

Sensor & radars used to locate target

Introduction


Stores Management Systems (SMS)

  • Primary interface between aircraft and its weapons (stores)

  • Provides necessary power and control to safely release weapons

  • Tornado:

    • Weapon Programming Unit (WPU)

    • Weapon Control Panel (WCP-1)

    • Pilots Control Panel (WCP-2)

    • Pylon Decoder Unit (AAMU)

    • Intervallgerber (IVG)

    • Gun Electronic Unit (GEU)

Fire Control Radar Lockheed Martin

  • Searches, detects, locates, classifies, and prioritize multiple moving targets

  • Target data (i.e., azimuth, elevation, range and velocity) automatically transferred to other platforms

  • Used by Apache AH-64D Attack Helicopter
