MISSILE DEFENCE

Since the end of the Cold War the threat from inter-continental and intermediate range missiles has increased due to the proliferation of archaic ballistic missile technologies to rogue states, as well as the emergence of new stealth and hypersonic missile technologies among space superpowers.

The need for advanced technology for missile defence is proliferating in parallel with the offensive missile technology.

EOS missile defence products use high power laser beams to detect, track, characterise, manoeuvre and affect objects in space.  This can be achieved either from a space or near-space platform, or from the ground using advanced atmospheric correction technology for the laser beam.

EOS sensor technology can be applied at multiple points in a missile defence engagement process, including tracking and discrimination, terminal guidance, and damage assessment after conjunction.

  • EOS laser tracking is effective for 5 cm objects travelling at 10 km/sec at a range of 5,000 km, even for objects in close formation.  Accurate trajectory and intended-target data can quickly be determined.
  • EOS remote thrusting technology developed for space debris mitigation, can also be applied to move (not damage or destroy) space vehicles for missile defence.
  • EOS laser trackers can designate targets for defensive kinetic kill vehicles (KVs) even while tracking.
  • High resolution tracking systems provide battle damage assessment with high fidelity if a tracked target fragments or breaks up.
