It is required for UGV(Unmanned Ground Vehicle) to have a LPP(Local Path Plan) component which generate a local path via the center of road by analyzing binary map to travel autonomously unpaved road in rough environment. In this paper, we present the method of boundary estimation for unpaved road and a local path planning method based on RANGER algorithm using the estimated boundary. In specially, the paper presents an approach to estimate road boundary and the selection method of candidate path to minimize the problem of zigzag driving based on Bayesian probability reasoning. Field test is conducted with scenarios in rough environment in which bush, tree and unpaved road are included and the performance of proposed method is validated.

Lee, Yong-In ; Choe, Dong-Gyun ; Hwang, Tae-Won ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 6, 2013, Pages 739~744
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.6.739
In this paper, we propose a method of generating pitch commands for consistent initial trajectories irrelevant to flight conditions in the initial boosting phase of a thrust-vector-controlled vehicle. After shape assumption of the pitch command profile, parameters of the profile are determined in real time in order for the summit height of the trajectory to be a desired value by deriving the summit height considering thrust performance, gravity, and other flight conditions. Computer simulation results demonstrate good performance of the proposed method.
Study on Analyzing and Correction of Dynamic Battery Alignment Error in Naval Gun Fire Control System by using Image of Boresight Telescope
Kim, Eui-Jin ; Suh, Tae Il ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 6, 2013, Pages 745~751
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.6.745
In naval gun firing, firing accuracy comes from the combination of each component`s accuracy in CFCS (Command and Fire Control System) like tracking sensors and gun. Generally, battery alignment is done to correct the error between gun and tracking sensor by using boresight telescope on harbor and sea. But normally, the battery alignment can compensate only the static alignment error and ignore dynamic alignment error which is caused by own ship movement. There was no research on this dynamic alignment error until now. We propose a new way to analyze dynamic arrangement error by using image of boresight telescope. In case of the dynamic alignment error was due to time delay of own ship attitude information, we propose the way to compensate it.

DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.6.752
A new gun fire control system has been developed for the Korean next generation frigate class. The engineering requirement was far more tightened than the PKG-A class for the firing range availability and gun control function since 5 inch gun is adopted for the new ship. We mention about the principal technologies required to build a generic gun fire control system and proposed methods for the new gun fire control system. The new system has been designed based on the proposed methods in order to satisfy the requirement and functionality has been proved to be acceptable through the sea trial by Korean navy.
Feasibility Study on Domestic Development of a Precision-Landing System for Korean Military Based on GNSS
Lee, Keehoon ; Ahn, Jongsun ; Lee, Young Jae ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 6, 2013, Pages 762~770
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.6.762
Korean military is currently using and operating a precision approach and landing system, called RAPCON (ASR/PAR), which is imported from overseas. However, drawbacks of this system are operational and cost problems that come along, e.g. straightness of the radio waves, limited ability of narrow searching, lack of interoperability, and high cost of installation and maintenance. Moreover, as the civilian air traffic control uses a similar system compared to the military, the so called DME/VOR/ILS, disturbance between these two systems triggered the consideration of GNSS as alternative system. In this paper, we conduct a research on trends in the field of precise approach and landing systems based on GNSS, analyze weaknesses of GNSS(jamming, fault) and consider possible solutions. Furthermore, we propose the precise approach and landing system based on GNSS to be used by the Korean military as we found it to be also suitable for military purposes. Finally, we examine the benefits of a domestic development with different focuses(development/cost of mass production/operational advantages and potential for increased performance).

Transmission is a core component of helicopter to transmit power from engine to rotor and must have a endurance to be able to show satisfactorily its performance required during its life time. When developing a new helicopter, both military and civil airworthiness authorities require a tie-down test to verify its endurance. Procedure for transmission endurance test is described in FAR part 29 or US military specification but its details are more or less ambiguous. In this paper, we have proposed a proper procedure for transmission endurance test by giving KUH transmission endurance test example including determination of applicable torque, load and test profile.

DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.6.779
The load requirements should be known to design mechanical structure. This paper proposes a generation method of load requirements using U.S. military specification to design the external mounting structure of the helicopters of which the flight environments such as aerodynamic forces and inertia forces are unknown. In this study, the load requirements which were applied at the design of the pod structure for helicopter captive flight test could be computed by using this method. The validation of proposed method was confirmed from the test flight using developed pod system.

Tae, Won-Seok ; Kim, Gun-In ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 6, 2013, Pages 803~810
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.6.803
In this paper, we have verified the performance of ballistic resistance material on wet condition. Considering Korea terrain, soldiers may face many rivers and streams. However, bullet-proof jacket has no waterproofing and there`s no water-proof standard in Military. Wearing wet bullet-proof jacket, soldiers can`t be protected properly because of the decrement of jacket. Thus, we measure the performance of existing material on wet condition and analyze failure mechanism in order to indicate factors to improve bullet-proof jacket.

In this paper, we have designed the elliptical dual offset gregorian antenna which can use Ka band earth station antennas in the fixed-satellite service. The structure of antenna is increasing the antenna gain by decreasing blockage areas and decreasing wind effects by shortening height of the antenna. The corrugate horn antenna for this antenna has symmetric radiation patterns and low side lobe levels that can meet ITU-R envelope. The distribution of electric field on a aperture of main reflector is calculated by an ray-tracing method that use the radiation pattern of the feed horn. The final geometric of antena is decided by choosing the distribution that comply with antenna requirement. The FEKO analysed electrical performance of this antenna. The fabricated antenna has 45.0dBi(@30.0GHz)/41.7dBi(@20.2GHz), high efficiency and low side lobe level that meet ITU-R S. 580-6 envelope.

Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 16, issue 6, 2013, Pages 847~856
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2013.16.6.847
In this study, thermal performance of recuperators with plain and offset strip fins is investigated to enhance the thermal efficiency of a micro gas turbine. Thermal cycle analysis is conducted to determine major design parameters of a single-pass counterflow recuperator. In order to evaluate the performance of the recuperator, the effectiveness and the pressure drop in the recuperators are chosen as the objective function and the design constraint, respectively. The optimized geometries for internal structure of the recuperators with plain and offset strip fins are obtained with varying the fin spacing and height. From the result, the recuperator with offset strip fins has better thermal performance when the fin spacing, s, is smaller than 1.45mm and the thermal performance of the recuperator with plain rectangular fins is higher than that with offset strip fins in the region of
. In addition, it is found that the entrance region effect and the longitudinal wall heat conduction effect should be taken into account for accurately predicting the thermal performance of the recuperators with both plain and offset strip fins.
