LV-2 IRBM Target TargeTs and CounTermeasures Maiden Mission FTG-06 LV-2 Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) Target: Ready for Test Payload Deployment Module (PDM) (Optional) Deploys canisters & provides scene generation; LV-2 can carry 0, 1 or 2 PDMs Avionics Control Module (ACM) Provides LV-2 avionics & post-boost attitude control Nth Stage Separation System (NSS) Separates boosters from front end Nth Stage Altitude Control System (NACS) (Optional) Allows for booster dynamics after powered flight Nth Stage Avionics Section (NAS) Houses booster avionics & mates C4SS to front end via NSS C4 Second Stage (C4SS) Includes modified raceway Interstage (IS) Mates C4FS to C4SS; stays with first stage C4 First Stage (C4FS) Includes modified raceway Aft Flare Shifts vehicle center of pressure aft OVERVIEW Supporting increasingly complex, threat-representative testing of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) LV-2 Target LV-2 Specifications 4 Next-generation threat- Range representative ballistic IRBM - 3000 - 5500km missile target. Measurements 4 Responsiveness in 45 feet long; 72-inch diameter; representing existing and 65,000 pounds emerging threats. Propulsion 4 Increase warfighters Trident I C4 missile first- and confidence in weapon second-stage rocket motors system performance. Ground Support Equipment Common Transporter and Erector System; Launch Control Van Centralized Production and Ship-and-Shoot CONOPS 4 Efficient production with standardized components. 4 Fully integrated LV-2 target system shipped to the range, ready to launch. Single Integration Capability: Putting It All Together The Missile Defense Agency’s Targets and Countermeasures Single Integration Capability in Courtland, Alabama, centralizes LV-2 fabrica- tion, integration, testing and shipment. This one-stop shop builds next-generation LV-2 target missiles and delivers them to test ranges with a Ship-and-Shoot concept of operations (CONOPS). Here, common components are pulled from inventory to build mission-specific targets. Completed target systems then are shipped to the test range, fully integrated and ready for launch. This simplifies integration with the test range, reduces time at the range and helps to contain the overall cost for conducting Ballistic Missile Missile Assembly Building 2: Target Vehicle Integration InTEgRATIOn CApABIlITy SInglE Home of LV-2 Defense System tests. Allows efficient receipt, assembly, integration, test and storage of targets. • Flight hardware placed in inventory until receipt of mission order. • Inventoried hardware allows quick reaction to meet mission dates. Courtland, Alabama Single Integration Capability Ship-and-Shoot CONOPS: Integrate, Test, Transport and Launch Ship-and-Shoot CONOPS means that each target vehicle is shipped, fully integrated, from the Courtland Single Integration Capability to the test range. Flight hardware is integrated and tested with live boosters, and then each completed target vehicle is transferred to a shipping container and sent to the test range ready for launch. This approach: • Reduces range time and infrastructure
