Chinese Anti-Ship Ballistic Missile


Andrew S. Erickson, "Chinese Anti-Ship Ballistic Missile "
English | ISBN: 0983084262 | 2013 | 110 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
In 2015, the largest military parade in Chinese history displayed nearly a dozen operational ballistic missiles, including sixteen trucks carrying the world’s first anti-ship ballistic missile (ASBM), the Dong Feng-21D. Official commentary dubbed it "the assassin’s mace for maritime asymmetric warfare." China’s most advanced ASBM has a range of 1,500 km and a maneuverable warhead, giving the DF-21D the ability to hit ships far out into the Pacific.

Missile Guidance and Control Systems


George M. Siouris, "Missile Guidance and Control Systems"
English | 2004 | pages: 680 | ISBN: 0387007261, 1441918353 | PDF | 2,6 mb
Airborne Vehicle Guidance and Control Systems is a broad and wide- angled engineering and technological area for research, and continues to be important not only in military defense systems but also in industrial process control and in commercial transportation networks such as various Global Positioning Systems (GPS). The book fills a long-standing gap in the literature. The author is retired from the Air Force Institute and received the Air Force’s Outstanding Civilian Career Service Award.

Missile Design Guide


English | 2021 | ISBN: 9781624106187 | 485 pages | True PDF | 57.87 MB
In his latest book, Missile Design Guide, Eugene Fleeman presents a comprehensive compilation of the missile design process pulling from his 50+ years of experience in the design and development of missile systems. The handbook consists of full color figures with self-standing graphs, tables, charts, and diagrams. It is aimed toward the needs of missile engineers, system engineers, system analysts, program managers, aerospace engineering students, and professors. Readers have a quick reference for missile design, missile technologies, launch platform integration, targeting, fire control integration, missile system measures of merit, and the missile system development process.Topics DiscussedKey drivers in the missile design, development, and system engineering processCritical tradeoffs, methods, and technologies in aerodynamic, propulsion, structure, seeker, warhead, fuzing, and subsystems sizing to meet flight performance and other requirementsLaunch platform and fire control system integrationRobustness, lethality, guidance, navigation and control, accuracy, observables, survivability, safety, reliability, and cost considerationsMissile sizing examplesMissile system and missile technology development processSpecial FeaturesSimple, closed-form, physics-based analytical expressions that provide insight into primary driving parametersExample calculations of rocket-powered, ramjet-powered, and turbojet powered missiles as well as guided bombsExamples of the characteristics of current missilesEnabling subsystems and technologies of missiles, and the state of the art of missilesDetailed appendices, including homework problems/classroom exercises and quizzes.Access to the web site for this book – which includes over 100 missile videos, missile configuration design software, missile design studies by Georgia Tech graduate students, and a STEM project for students.Eugene L. Fleeman has 50+ years of government, industry, academia, and consulting experience in the design and development of missile systems. Formerly a manager of missile programs at the US Air Force Research Laboratory, Rockwell International, Boeing, and Georgia Tech, he is an international lecturer on missiles and the author of over 200 publications, including four textbooks.
