AbstractThe Range Commanders Council (RCC) Range Safety Group (RSG) is conducting a study into the next generation of ground-based flight termination technology, known as the Enhanced Flight Termination System (EFTS) study. The study was initiated by the RCC in April 2000 with a scheduled completion of March 2002. The Government is performing the study with support from contractors and academia. This paper will discuss specific details of phase II and III of the EFTS study. The description of phase II will include details on the down-selected approaches and reason for the selection. The phase III description will include the methods of analysis, simulation, experimentation, and verification that are used to refine the phase II recommendations.
