Introduction to tactical missiles

OBJECTIVE :

This course will provide learners with an overview of tactical missile systems (technical solutions employed and performance capabilities).

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (30 hours) and includes:

  • Lectures
  • Video presentations

GENERAL APPROACH :

The theme of this introductory course is to present the main functions/roles involved in the design of tactical missiles and to give an overview of the concept of weapon systems. The priority is to emphasize the description and physical understanding of issues by minimizing mathematical developments. This course is intended for military or civilian personnel involved in the utilization or study of tactical missile systems.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Basic

Engineers or senior technicians with general scientific training. A further development course for engineers already initiated in existent missiles (see course AED 033).

COURSE DIRECTOR(S) :

Maurice MIRANDE:

Civil Engineer in Aeronautics - MS CALTECH
Former Technical Director at MBDF - Head of development of several in-service missiles.
