A technique is provided that uses a dual mode seeker (IR and LADAR) for precise target dynamics measurement, which extends stripping to a much higher altitude than ground based radar. Initial results show that this approach works to altitudes in excess of 100 km. Stripping becomes a reliable way to discriminate lighter weight decoys from reentry vehicles at altitudes and ranges consistent with planned divert capabilities for terminal phase missile defense. It is a finding of this invention that the LADAR will improve the spatial resolution by a factor of...
1. A method for detecting the presence and location of a high altitude reentry vehicle in the presence of decoys in which the decoys have associated flight characteristics different from those of the reentry vehicle, comprising the steps of:detecting by a plurality of radar returns the existence of a number of objects constituting a threat cloud, which are generally on a trajectory towards a point; launching an intercept vehicle constituting a kill vehicle in the direction of said threat cloud; determining from the intercept vehicle in a high altitude st...
