During the land operations, the enemy`s gunnery is the primary threat. For the military vehicle, the bulletproof effect is the one of the important issues regarding the safety of soldiers on duty. Recently, the advanced military vehicles have planned to install armor plates. However, due to the budget problem, it is difficult to equip the protection systems. Hence, the optimum approach to increase bulletproof capability is essential. In this paper, the optimum thickness and component of the armor of military vehicles were evaluated by using finite element analysis for bullet impact effects. To achieve this aim, 7.62mm NATO bullet, 1.6mm steel and Kevlar-29 composite have been modeled and the simulations were conducted with various thickness cases by using MSC Nastran sol 700. Consequently, it was revealed that Kevlar-29 45 Layer is appropriate thickness for 7.62 bulletproof. Furthermore, Kevlar-29 in front of steel was effective by comparison with the back of steel for bulletproof.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 422~429
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.422
MIL-STD-1553B communication is globally used in the area of aerospace and defense which require safety and reliability in spite of its low communication speed. As recently increased requirements for high precision and robust guidance ability of missiles, missile sensor equipment needs more data to satisfy those requirements. Therefore, missile systems to adopt MIL-STD-1553B requires higher data transfer and processing capability than those of the current systems. In this paper, we describe the result of analysis and implementation of the existing methods that applied multi-message chain and double buffers to improve the current missile system.

Kim, Seok-Bong ; Yoo, Yo-Han ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 430~434
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.430
In this paper, we have investigated deformation of cup for EFI detonator in high velocity impact test. The experimental result shows that STS cup deformed 0.170 mm with the bulged shape. The numerical simulation result with static/dynamic material properties of SUS304 shows 0.166 mm of deformation. The main parameters to decrease the deformation of cup are stength, thickness and density of cup. The initial condition of SUS304 cup was strength of 215 MPa and thickness of 0.12 mm. As strength increases to 500 MPa, deformation of cup converges to 0 mm, and as thickness increases to 0.18 mm, deformation of cup converges to 0 mm. If the density of cup decreases from 8 to 2.7 g/cc, the deformation of cup decreases to 0.141 mm.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 435~440
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.435
In this paper, a design method of the simulation program for HILS(Hardware-In-the-Loop Simulation) system is proposed. The present method consists of definition of requirements for HILS, development of specifications, and implementation of the program to satisfy the specifications. In the implementation of the program, the application of hardware interface and the concept of structural modularization are proposed to satisfy the specifications. The concepts of CSCI(Computer Software Configuration Item) and encapsulation are used for structural modularization. The proposed method was practically applied to the development of the simulation program for the efficient operation in HILS of an anti-ship missile system.

Chung, Jae-Wook ; Shin, Sang-Mok ; Bae, Young-Gwan ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 449~455
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.449
When a missile is launched, a fracture-type canister cover should be properly broken by a collision with a missile or inner pressure of a canister. The fracture performance of a canister cover should be evaluated by a test using a real missile; however, it is unrealistic due to high cost and time restriction in a design stage. In this study, a test technique is newly developed to predict fracture performance of a canister cover. The test was design to have same kinetic energy with a real missile test when the cover is collide with a missile. The effectiveness of the suggested test technique was proved by comparing the test result with that of a real missile test.

Passive sonar in submarine can detect the target in long range and can attack using it. There are many noises which can be received at passive sonar of submarine. When noise received in the sonar it make diverse interference pattern depend on the ocean ambient and movement scenario. Interference pattern can be explained by theory of waveguide invariant. In this paper, analyze the interference pattern according to the relative motions of surface ship and submarine. And analyze the occurrence reason of 2 kinds of interference patterns those are usually display on the submarine console. The results show that if relative speed of submarine and target increase then gradient of interference pattern will increase. And closest point approach of submarine and target decrease then gradient of interference pattern will increase. Bathtube pattern usually appear when target pass though close to submarine and Pinetree pattern appear target pass though above of submarine.

Lee, Ki-Young ; Kim, Subum ; Song, Chan-Hee ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 473~480
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.473
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that the genetic algorithm can be useful for the global path planning when the obstacles and current field data are given. In particular, the possibilities for a novel type small AUV mission deployment in tidal regions, which experience vortical currents, were examined. Experimental simulations show feasibility and effective in generate the global path regardless of current and obstacles. By choosing an appropriate path in space, an AUV may both bypass adverse currents which are too fast to be overcome by the vehicle`s motor and also exploit favorable currents to achieve far greater speeds than motors could otherwise provide, while substantially saving energy.

Jang, Ji Sung ; Chung, In Jae ; Lee, Duck Joo ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 481~485
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.481
Rotor wake causes unsteady aerodynamics of rotor blade. So, accurate prediction of wake is very important and vortex method is good solution for this problem. Aerodynamic force of the rotor blade is calculated by potential panel method and the rotor wake is simulated by vortex particle method. The vortex particle method is easier to treat wake-body interaction and has better performance to expect the effect of ground and fuselage interaction. Rotor in hovering and forward flight condition is simulated through these methods. Thrust and surface pressure of rotor are compared with experiment data.

Hong, Jungwan ; Park, Sang C. ; Kwon, Yongjin ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 501~506
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.501
This research is to develop a simulation framework to gauge the mission effectiveness of the rotorcraft system that will be a part of Korean future combat system. The rotorcraft system comprises of many subsystems that are very time-consuming and tedious to model. Each subsystem and its characteristics have been modeled using component-based modeling techniques, which enhances its reusability. The entire system is then constructed from the individually modeled component, which significantly reduces the modelling time. The mission effectiveness of the rotorcraft system is simulated using the developed models, and the output indicates that the methodology proposed in this study is useful, which will be suitable for the modeling and simulation of Korean future combat system.

Shim, Gyu-In ; Eom, Hyengwoo ; Choi, Se-Young ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 507~513
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.507
Transparent bulletproof windows play an important role in the munitions industry. The thickness of bulletproof windows including soda-lime silicate(SLS) glass, polyvinyl butyral, poly urethane, main defense(200MD), and safety film was reduced from 40mm to 29mm by adjustment of SLS glass laminated array. Borosilicate glasses generally have lower surface density and more excellent mechanical properties than SLS glass. Borosilicate glass was strengthened by ion exchange in the
powder. The maximum mechanical properties were observed at
for 10min. The Vickers hardness, fracture toughness and 3-point bending strength of ion exchanged samples were about
and 764MPa each, which are about 27%, 149% and 249% higher than parent borosilicate glass, respectively. The penetration depth of K+ ion at
for 10min was
. As a result, the transparent bulletproof windows were predicted to be more lightweight by ion exchange of borosilicate glass. If the SLS glass for bulletproof windows is replaced by ion exchanged borosilicate glass, the bulletproof windows can be expected to be lightweight and thinner.

In this paper, we present signal processing procedure and carry out performance analysis of FMCW(Frequency Modulation Continuous Wave) radar for Autonomous Unmanned Vehicle(AUV). In order to detect range profile and velocity of the unknown target, we must implement two step FFT(Fast Fourier Transform) procedure. And the DBF(Digital Beam Forming) algorithm has to be performed to obtain the angle information of the unknown target. To verify the performance of manufactured autonomous unmanned ground vehicle FMCW radar, we use the data of the real corner reflecter target.

Lee, Dong-Gwan ; Cho, Kil-Seok ; Shin, Jin-Hwa ; Kim, Ji-Eun ; Kwon, Jae-Woo ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 523~536

A recent air defense missile system is required to have a capability to intercept short-range super-high speed targets such as tactical ballistic missile(TBMs) by performing engagement control efficiently. Since flight time and distance of TBM are very short, the missile defense system should be ready to engage a TBM as soon as it takes an indication of the TBM launch. As a result, it has to predict TBM trajectory accurately with cueing information received from an early warning system, and designate search direction and volume for own radar to detect/track TBM as fast as it can, and also generate necessary engagement information. In addition, it is needed to engage TBM accurately via transmitting tracked TBM position and velocity data to the corresponding intercept missiles. In this paper, we proposed a method to estimate TBM trajectory based on the Kepler`s law for the missile system to detect and track TBM using the cueing information received before the TBM arrives the apogee of the ballistic trajectory, and analyzed the bias of prediction error in terms of the transmission period of cueing data between the missile system and the early warning system.
EO/IR Images Registration using Recursive Localized Normalized Mutual Information and Implementation
Jeon, Yunho ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 537~544
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.537
This paper proposes a recursive localized Normalized Mutual Information(NMI) algorithm to overcome shortcomings of the conventional NMI algorithm and the localized NMI algorithm which proposed before. The localized NMI algorithm divides images into few fixed size segments and applies NMI algorithm to each segments. By extension, the proposed algorithm uses variable size segments using its characteristic. Dividing each segment recursively, the algorithm selects a suitable segment size and improves a performance of the image registration. Experimental result shows the performance of the proposed algorithm.
Study on the Seasonal IR Signature Characteristics of a Naval Ship with Plume Gas Effect
Han, Kuk-Il ; Kim, Dong-Geon ; Choi, Jun-Hyuk ; Kim, Tae-Kuk ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 545~552
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.545
This paper is a part of developing a computer code that can be used to generate IR images of a naval ship by considering the emitted and reflected infrared signals. The spectral radiance received by an IR sensor is consisted of the self-emitted component from the ship surface, the reflected component of the solar/sky irradiance at the ship surface, the emitted radiance from the ship surface and the exhaust plume gas, and the scattered radiance by the atmosphere. The plume gas radiance occupies a large part of the emitted radiance from a naval ship in operation. Therefore plume gas radiance must be taken into account when calculating the radiance from a naval ship for reliable IR images. In this paper, IR images of a naval ship with the exhaust gas effect in various environmental conditions are generated by using an exhaust gas prediction model called the JPL model. The contrast radiance (CR) values of the IR images are calculated to analyze the effect of the exhaust gas radiance quantitatively. The results obtained by quantitative analysis show that the IR signatures with the exhaust plume gas are 2.26 times larger than those neglecting the plume gas effect. The effect of the exhaust plume gas is shown to be more eminent in winter than in summer in the daytime.

We make several membranes with multilayer structure and characterize protective performance in various ways. Multilayer membrane is composed of shell fabric, support membrane, functional polymer membrane and liner fabric. In this research, we apply cellulose acetate derivatives as base polymer in functional polymer membrane and characterize water resistance, water vapor permeation, protective performance against DMMP and aerosol. Test results show that cellulose based polymer with polyethyleneimine possess performance with good water vapor permeation and excellent protective capability against DMMP equivalent to Saratoga type`s protective suits. Also, these materials possess aerosol protective performance and water resistance.

Biological decontamination means the removal of microorganisms from the inanimate object such as building or equipment. In this study, hydrogen peroxide vapor efficacy test using VHP 1000ED system(Steris LifeSciences) were conducted for G. stearothermophilus spore with agent materials(aluminum, stainless steel, poly-carbonate, viton, silicone, kapton and glass). Total recovered spores exposed to hydrogen peroxide vapor(1.0 g/min) during 7, 15, 30, 60 min were calculated. As a result, all agent materials were totally decontaminated within 60 min at 1.0 g/min concentration with 35% hydrogen peroxide vapor. Finally, we could confirmed that hydrogen peroxide vapor possess sporicidal capacity of G. stearothermophilus and found the optimum decontamination conditions with VHP1000ED system.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 566~574
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.566
In this paper, direct power control system for three-phase PFC AC/DC converter without the source voltage sensors is proposed. The sinusoidal input current and unity effective power factor are realised based on the estimated flux in the observer. Both active and reactive power calculated using estimated flux. The estimation of flux is performed based on the reduced-order virtual flux observer using the actual currents and the command control voltage. Moreover, source voltage sensors are replaced by a estimated flux. DC output voltage has been compensated by DC output ripple voltage estimation algorithm. The active and reactive powers estimation are performed based on the estimated flux and Phase angle. The proposed algorithm is verified through simulation and experiment.

Je, Du-Ho ; Lee, Jongwoo ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 4, 2013, Pages 575~581
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.4.575
In this paper, we experimentally investigated the effects of attached cylindrical tripwires on the aerodynamic performance. The research was carried out with a simple two-dimensional (2-D) rectangular airfoil fabricated from thin flat-plate aluminium, with elliptical leading and trailing edges. Tripwires of varying widths and thicknesses, and attack angles of
were used to investigate the aerodynamic characteristics (e.g. lift and drag forces) of the airfoil. We found that attaching the tripwires to the lower surface of the airfoil enhanced the lift force and increased the lift-to-drag ratio for low attack angles. However, attaching the tripwires to the upper surface tended to have the opposite effects. Moreover, we found that attaching the tripwires to the trailing edge had similar effects as a Gurney flap. The aerodynamic characteristics of the flat-plate airfoil with tripwires can be used to develop passive control devices for aircraft wings in order to increase their aerodynamic performance when gliding at low attack angles.
