We offer you a laser guided micro rocket, that is getting along without any built in electronic components, which immensely decreases cost per bullet, chance of failure due too high complexity of the system and which facilitates a longer storage, high functionality and overall one thing less to worry about. The target is locked into aim by a laser beam which will bring the fired bullet back to track as soon as it is about to leave the required course. Not only is this system easy to understand and operate, it also is groundbreaking in matters of cost and minimizes any undesired potential damage to infrastructure, civilians and assets.
The invention relates to a method and a device for the automated control of driven and unpowered flying objects in a beam tunnel preferably drawn by an X / Y galvanometer system, preferably laser-operated, without absolutely necessary return channel of the object. Non-Contact guidance with “soft” planks, which allows the object to change direction, preferably by changing object geometry when exposed to light.
A method to accurately control a flying object with minimal effort – preferably without on-board electronics (or the minimal number of components of smallest possible volume) – and to let it land pinpoint.
The invention relates to a method and a device for automated controlling of a projectile (21) which is at least on the lower side partially wrapped in a polymer film.
The projectile will be directed in a beam tunnel, which is preferably drawn from an X/Y galvanometer system(8) with sector-dependent different and rolling upcoded signal strength. The Beam tunnel varies signal strengths gradually increasing between tunnel center and outer diameter. At the projectile bottom a signal-reflecting triplesmirror (25) is mounted so that a control unit (4) can perform the projectile position detection. The system is preferably laser operated (6), without any incorporation of mechanical or electronic parts into the projectile (18).
It offers non-contact guidance with “soft” planks that allow the projectile to change direction through sidewall (21/19) differences (26) to achieve unprecedented accuracy up to one kilometer range.
The invention relates to a method for the automated control of a projectile, preferably by means of a galvanometer system in combination with a standing Tem00 beam, when the projectile is to fly beyond the usable range of the galvo system. To be used as projectiles we suggest conventional ammunition and missile projectiles which are provided with polymer walls and triple mirrors.
The invention represents a method and a device for the automated control of a projectile, preferably by means of a galvanometer system. As projectiles cylindrical rocket projectiles are proposed, which will have fins – that swing out after exiting the barrel – and control flaps – which are polymer-coated on the inner side. The projectile outer wall at the drive propulsion segment is mirrored.
A swivel nozzle that is connected to each of the four control flaps via ceramic threads will ensure maneuverability using vector thrust. Also advantageous is the thrust flow deflection by Coanda – or more simple – by vortex effects due to the air flow flowing between the fin and each control flap which will change their individual alignment under the influence of laser light.
The device consists of a 4mm diameter and 40mm long solid fuel containing cylinder with an electronic ignition mechanism incorporated in the conical head part and a steering section mounted on the rearmost part of the projectile.
The invention represents a method and three devices for the automated control of a rocket-propelled projectile. Guidance is provided by a galvanometer system, a MEMS mirror system or motorized camera-barrel-combination. The projectile is steered by a thrust reverser at the rear end of the projectile onto which an incident laser beam is impacting on and thus locally expanding the thrust jet due to airflow changes triggered by the generated surface roughness of said film in response to the laser action. The laser beam is incident from firing direction. It encounters the polymer film-cored domed part of the projectile. If the projectile emerges from the laser center, the jet – previously “compressed” by laminar flow – widens. This is due to the stall caused by the generated surface roughness of said film in response to the laser action. Said stall occurs due to pulsed irradiation in the kHz range on PVDF-based material. These surface roughness differences are induced by dimorphic actuators on a 50-100 μm thick film in that the stamped three-layer film produces “air bumps” proportional to the radiation dose with about 1-100 μN holding force. Frictional heat is negligible for the 50ms Mach3 flight with a melting point of the base material of > 170 ° C.
