By sharing tasks between the CV and the KVs, the MKV interceptor provides a cost-effective missile defense system capable of intercepting and killing multiple targets. The placement of the acquisition and discrimination sensor and control sensor on the CV to provide target acquisition and discrimination and mid-course guidance for all the KVs avoids the weight and complexity issues associated with trying to "miniaturize" unitary interceptors. The placement of a short-band imaging sensor on each KV overcomes the latency, resolution and bandwidth problems...
We claim: 1. A multiple kill vehicle (MKV) interceptor for launch on a multi-stage rocket booster to intercept targets, comprising: A carrier vehicle (CV); and A plurality of kill vehicles (KVs) initially stored on said carrier vehicle for release to intercept the targets; Said CV including a first sensor subsystem for detecting a first signature off of the targets, a CV processor for processing the first signature to track said targets and issue guidance commands, and an external commlink for transmitting the respective guidance commands to the release...
