How to use it? How does it work? How do you defend yourself?
Three questions one answer: algorithms.
When a missile is fired, the engine provides the energy necessary for its motion.
Guide algorithm pilots the missile and Control algorithm orientates it. The algorithms know that the missile must be pushed up and dropped on the enemies’ heads because the algorithms know where the enemies are. First the missile flies over sea or ground level, so that no one can notice it, and then increases its altitude. Image this missile is flying in the sky above our heads.
Now, what if we are the enemies? Still algorithm!
We deceive the missile through an algorithm telling him that the enemies are further away. Our algorithm misleads the guide one to go elsewhere and the control one to turn missile away from us.
This is where Kineton comes.
One of the activities supported by the “Aerospace Team” concerns the development of a system able to model the response of an object affected by a radar stimulation. The main goal is the identification of an object, representing a potential threat, in the airspace. Virtual simulations were used to test the developed code. Given the radar sensors, such simulations have shown that is possible to identify and classify approaching objects. Running the Kineton algorithms, the user obtains a real-time response of the model. Exhaustively, the simulations allow to set customized parameters:
- positioning, geographical location on land or in the air;
- installation, type of sensors present on the threat object;
- platform type, e.g. scattering shapes.
Furthermore, this developing process allows the optimization of time and costs for the construction of a defense infrastructure.
