DUAL MODE Ka-BAND/IR SEEKER FOR HIGH ENDO INTERCEPTORS

microVection employees developed a dual mode seeker concept for the US Army Ballistic Missile Defense Organization in the 1991-1992 time frame. Future Technologies, Inc. and MetroLaser, Inc. were teammates in the development, with FTI designing the Ka-band system, and MetroLaser designing the IR sensor. microVection employees were involved with the thermofluid design of the thermal management system.

The figure below shows an arcjet test model of the concept during testing at the USAF Arnold Engineering Development Center.
