AbstractTests for missile defense systems are very complex, and present challenging issues for the extraction of target lethality data. Future tests will involve the use of multiple interceptors and targets with some of these assets following over-the-horizon (OTH) trajectories. The use of wireless local area network (WLAN) technologies for the acquisition of test data offers a novel approach to manage data bandwidths and link margins over-the-air (OTA) as functions of time and asset. Notional test scenarios are examined for the suitability of WLAN technologies to missile defense intercept testing.
