1 Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) Program Public Overview Briefing Current As of: 24 August 2001
Air Armament Center Lethal Strike JPO Eglin Air Force Base, FL

2 Disclosure & Disclaimer Statements
DISTRIBUTION A: This briefing has been cleared by AAC/PA (Public Affairs) for public release. This is briefing is UNCLASSIFIED. This presentation is for information only. No US Government commitment to sell, loan, lease, co-develop or co-produce defense articles or services is implied or intended.


4 Program Background MMC Mission Need Statement, ACAT Level II, Oct 97
Increase kills per sortie Increase aircraft loadout Accommodate current and future aircraft Kill fixed, relocatable and mobiles targets Milestone 0 decision Feb 98 Perform concept and trade studies Evaluate both weapons and carriage systems HQ ACC, AAC, and AFRL performed Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) 22 approaches evaluated Government and Industry proposed methods

5 Program Background (con’t)
Air Force Research Lab Munitions Directorate (Eglin AFB FL) demonstrated technologies Four Concept Study Contracts awarded 1999 ($250K each) Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon Conducted trade studies, defined concepts Four contracts modified 2000 (adding $1.3M each) Develop and tested seeker and ATR algorithms Characterized seeker/ATR in operational environment Continue algorithm development


7 Miniaturized Munitions Concept SDB Program Covers Phase I and Phase II
MMC Umbrella Future Phase I Wide Area Search Autonomous Attack Miniature Munition (WASAAMM) SDB Fixed Phase II Let’s start by talking about where SDB fits in to the big picture. Miniturized Munitions Capability is a term we will use to define overarching requirements. Under the MMC umbrella, we have a Phase I requirement for a Small Diameter Bomb capable against fixed targets and a common carriage system which will evolve into a phase 2 weapon capable against mobile targets. There is a future requirement that is TBD for a wide area search and standoff weapon that could be a totally separate weapon system although the idea is to use the common carriage system. This acquisition strategy only addresses Phase 1 and 2. SDB Mobile Common Carriage System SDB Program Covers Phase I and Phase II

8 Requirements Schedule #1 Priority: field systems soonest
Cost #2: Affordability, obtain price commitments Performance #3 Phase I: GPS/INS-like accuracy (fixed/stationary) Phase II: Seeker/ATR-like accuracy (mobile/relocatable) 2 KPPs: Loadout 4 weapons per 1760 aircraft station is threshold Interoperability Common carriage system & interface across aircraft Compatible with C4ISR infrastructure

9 Requirements (con’t) Evolutionary approach to fielding systems
Phase I: Effective in GPS Jammed Environment Phase II: Target Recognition for Autonomous Engagement in Limited Search Area ORD Will Remain DRAFT until Milestone B decision KPPs are only non-tradables CAIV : performance trades between MS A and MS B HQ ACC finalize performance “thresholds” after seeing cost & schedule impacts to program

10 Requirements (con’t) Aircraft Integration Threshold Aircraft:
Phase I: F-15E Phase II: F-15E, F-16C/D and B-1B Objective Aircraft: Phase I: A-10, F-16, F-117, F-22, JSF, B-1, B-52, B-2, UCAV Phase II: A-10, F-117, F-22, JSF, B-52, B-2, UCAV Aircraft Loadouts A F-15E F-16 F-22 F JSF B-1 B-2 B-52 UCAV Stations TBD Threshold* TBD Objective TBD *Threshold: 4 SDB weapons per 1760 interface

11 Carriage System Requirements
Commonality across all threshold and objective aircraft Standard test equipment, training, containers, loading procedures, etc. Compatibility with B-2 Smart BRA MIL-STD-1760 interface Minimize aircraft OFP impact, single update Must support individual weapon targeting, fuze programming, weapon release initialization, weapon status reporting and weapon software reprogramming Individual and ripple release against one or more targets No single use devices for weapon ejection system


13 SDB Program Schedule FY01 FY02 FY03 FY04 FY05 FY06 FY07 FY08 MS B MS A
OCT JAN APR JUL MS B MS A MS C1 MS C2 RFP CA System Development & Demo – 1 Phase 1 Fixed Target SDB Common Carriage System GPS/INS Variant LRIP Production CAD Development & System Integration Downselect Phase 2 Mobile Target SDB Seeker/ATR Advanced Development Sys Int Seeker Design & Maturation System Development & Demo – 2 LRIP = Decision Review LRIP Prod

14 Development & System Integration
2 Contractors = 24 months Design and test warhead, fuze, GPS/INS guidance, carriage for fixed target SDB Develop common aircraft ICD Verify system level performance requirements are achievable for fixed target variant Concurrent development and maturation of seeker/ATR algorithms Develop and test Seeker/ATR Verify costs are below threshold amount for fixed target SDB and delta for mobile target variant
