A method and apparatus is provided for increasing the effectiveness of destroying selected objects in a target cloud by prioritizing the objects detected in a large aperture IR detector aboard a carrier vehicle and sequentially illuminating the detected targets with coded laser radiation, followed by the launching of multiple miniature kill vehicles from the carrier vehicle, with each kill vehicle assigned to a differently-coded object in the target cloud due to the reflection back of the coded returns, thus to permit directing of individual miniature ki...
1. A method for increasing the efficiency of destroying selected objects in a target cloud produced by an incoming missile, comprising the steps of: detecting the presence and location of objects in a target cloud;illuminating selected objects in the target cloud with coded laser radiation, a selected code being assigned for a selected object;launching multiple kill vehicles from a carrier vehicle towards the target cloud each along a line-of-sight to a selected object based on returned coded laser radiation, whereby different objects in the cloud can be...
