Kim, Seongjoon ; Yang, Dongwon ; Kim, Sujin ; Jung, Younghun ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 711~720
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.711
Recently many studies of Radar systems mounted on ground vehicles for autonomous driving, SLAM (Simultaneous localization and mapping) and collision avoidance have been reported. Since several pixels per an object may be generated in a close-range radar application, a width of an object can be estimated automatically by various signal processing techniques. In this paper, we tried to attempt to develop an algorithm to estimate obstacle width using Radar images. The proposed method consists of 5 steps - 1) background clutter reduction, 2) local peak pixel detection, 3) region growing, 4) contour extraction and 5)width calculation. For the performance validation of our method, we performed the test width estimation using a real data of two cars acquired by commercial radar system - I200 manufactured by Navtech. As a result, we verified that the proposed method can estimate the widths of targets.

Kim, Sungkyung ; Kim, Chandong ; HUR, Jangwook ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 721~727

The improvement of the reliability of weapon systems and the reduction of the total life-cycle cost based on the improving of the DT&E system for Company Organized weapon systems research and development are urgently required. The major advanced countries operate test and evaluation centers for military (U.S.), manage a large scale organization of IPT personnel (England) or conduct management of DT&E through a third party organization (France). Based on a survey of experts, an improvement of the DT&E policy in terms of reliability and objectiveness is needed, and management through a third party national defense agency and civilian agency such as the Surion development case is required. In addition, although it appears that efficiency improves when management of DT&E is performed by national defence agencies rather than civilian agencies, it is necessary to proceed by selecting a civilian agency based on competition in the case that it is difficult to select a national defence agency.

Lee, Youngki ; Park, Sungtaek ; Song, Yihwa ; Choi, Minsu ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 728~735
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.728
A gas gun system to replicate the flight motions of large caliber spin-stabilized ammunition has been investigated experimentally and numerically. The system is specially designed to study aerodynamic characteristics and dynamics of a flight body ejected from a cargo shell or a subsonic projectile itself at up to 2,000 rpm and 100 m/s. Raynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations with a overset mesh technique and 6-DOF dynamics were solved to decide the chamber pressure according to the muzzle velocity input by users. The predicted velocity values show less than 6 % of discrepancies compared to experimental data. The system has successfully been tested for the simulation of deployment of a parafoil for a 155 mm gun-launched projectile.

Kwon, Jinju ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 736~742
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.736
The effect of pressure on 1,3-dipolar cycloaddtion has been studied by means of FT-IR and NMR spectroscopy. Pressure accelerates 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition without solvent or catalyst. This simple and inexpensive method eliminates the need for work-up or purification. The method is expected to be applied to the synthesis of binders for solid rocket propellants.

Kim, Taegu ; Suh, Sungchul ; Jung, Gyungwon ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 743~754
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.743
FASCAM is a newly introduced mean against enemy fire power and supposed to be scattered on base areas in front of a tunnel so as to deter maneuver and shooting of enemy artilleries. However, for its characteristics different from conventional munitions, only a few studies have been undertaken on operations system using this new measure. In this research, we propose a procedure to describe and analyze mathematically an operation system for suppression of enemy fire power using FASCAM. Two suggested simulation methods, impact point generation and density integration, both can describe the actual operation rationally and each has advantages of its own respectively. Further, we demonstrated an example analysis to derive an optimal suppression plan based on the proposed procedure.

DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.755
Satellite Air-defence Warning System receives the aircraft/ballistic track information and air defense control command obtained from Master Control & Reporting Center (MCRC) and Air Missile Defence Cell (AMD Cell) Systems. It consists of terminal and control system to propagate track information and air defense control command control via the military satellite communications. In this paper, there were described track information, air defense control command, the frame structure of modem to transmit a voice information and modulation/demodulator design, network synchronization methods via the satellite network.

Kim, Taehyon ; Bae, Jungil ; Shin, Jinbeom ; Cho, Kilseok ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 762~770
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.762
Fault tolerance is a crucial design for a mission-critical computer such as engagement control computer that has to maintain its operation for long mission time. In recent years, software fault-tolerant design is becoming important in terms of cost-effectiveness and high-efficiency. In this paper, we propose MPCMCC which is a model-based software component to implement fault tolerance in mission-critical computers. MPCMCC is a fault tolerance design that synchronizes shared data between two computers by using the one-way message-passing scheme which is easy to use and more stable than the shared memory scheme. In addition, MPCMCC can be easily reused for future work by employing the model based development methodology. We verified the functions of the software component and analyzed its performance in the simulation environment by using two mission-critical computers. The results show that MPCMCC is a suitable software component for fault tolerance in mission-critical computers.

Shin, JinBeom ; Bae, JungIl ; Lee, DongGowan ; Koh, Hye-Seung ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 771~778
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.771
In this paper, we have proposed a design method for standardization of weapon information exchange between a weapon control computer of guided missile system and a high echelon command and control system. Because the weapon control computer based on diverse combat platforms is operated with several kinds of a high echelon system, it is necessary to provide a standardized design method for weapon information exchange between mutual system. In fact, it is possible to standardize a interface design specification of weapon information message because weapon information message is closely related to standard tactical data link message. It is essential that the interface design specification of weapon information is submitted to that of tactical data link information. It seems that this interface design specification is very useful in development process of the future weapon system.

The SONAR waterfall image(SWI) is used typically to target detection in SONAR operation and is managed with additional data linked in the naval combat system. The SWI and additional data are very important to classify a kind of target. Although additional data of the SWI is essential and must be kept together with the SWI, it was stored separately in the current system. In this paper, we propose an improved information management method in the naval combat system, where additional data can be contained in the SWI together by using information hiding techniques. The experimental results show that the effectiveness of information hiding techniques in the naval combat system. It is demonstrated that the information hiding techniques can be applied to the SWI that can make the naval combat system to be robust and secure.
Development of Evaluation System for Aviation Mission Suitability Depending on Pilot's Alertness and Physiological Stability Level
Kim, Dongsoo ; Lee, Wooil ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 789~796
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.789
Fighter pilot's ability to maintain both mental and physical capabilities in highly stressful situations is important for aviation safety as well as mission performance because pilot may confront frequently unexpected physical and psychological stimulation. Cumulative psychological stress and physical fatigue can be causes of mood distortion, declined alertness, and can lead to reduction of combat capability. We have investigated bio-signals and performance tests to monitor stress and fatigue levels, and developed a system to evaluate aviation mission suitability before flight. This study elucidated that stress and fatigue level of pilot can be monitored by psychomotor cognitive test(PCT) and heart rate variability(HRV), and that the best of reference for aviation mission suitability was confidential interval obtained from cumulative data of individuals. The system to evaluate aviation mission suitability was constructed with measuring part with PCT and HRV and control part with DB and algorithm.

Yunn, Seunghwan ; Kim, Suhwan ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 797~807

The low-altitude PAC-2 Patriot missile system is the backbone of ROK air defense for intercepting enemy aircraft. Currently there is no missile interceptor which can defend against the relatively high velocity ballistic missile from North Korea which may carry nuclear, biological or chemical warheads. For ballistic missile defense, Korea's air defense systems are being evaluated. In attempting to intercept ballistic missiles at high altitude the most effective means is through a multi-layered missile defense system. The missile defense problem has been studied considering a single interception system or any additional capability. In this study, we seek to establish a mathematical model that's available for multi-layered missile defense and minimize total interception fail probability and proposes a solution based on genetic algorithms. We perform computational tests to evaluate the relative speed and solution of our GA algorithm in comparison with the commercial optimization tool GAMS.

For performance improving of C-band radar altimeter used in a missile system, Ku-band radar altimeter is developed. To utilize the time delay devices which are used in testing C-band radar altimeter, we proposed C-band and Ku-band frequency conversion method and implemented it as a part of missile system test equipment. In this paper we present design contents, development results and test application results of radar altimeter test equipments.
In-Flight Prediction of Solid Rocket Motor Performance for Flight Control
Lee, Yong-In ; Cho, Sungjin ; Choe, Dong-Gyun ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 816~821
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.816
In this paper, an in-flight prediction method of thrust profiles for solid rocket motors is proposed. Actually, it is very difficult to have detailed information about the performance of the rocket motors beforehand because it is quite sensitive to combustion environments. To overcome this problem, we have developed an algorithm for generating in-flight prediction of rocket motor performance in realistic environments via a reference burnback profile and accelerations measured at a short time-interval just after launch. The performance is evaluated through a lot of flight test results.

Kah, Dong-Ha ; Shim, Woosup ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 822~828
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.822
This paper describes computer simulation program of high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP). The HEMP is produced by the gamma rays form high-altitude nuclear explosion. The gamma rays generate a current of compton electron that leads to the production of electromagnetic fields. In case of high altitude nuclear burst, the electrical fields at the earth's surface are strong enough to be damaged for electrical and electronic device over a very much larger area. Therefore, national infrastructure will be serious damage such as power grid and communication network. In this paper introduce simulation program for calculation of HEMP and present to simulation study results of high altitude nuclear explosion experiment from U.S. and U.S.S.R.

Kim, Kyungmin ; Kim, Kyung-pil ;
Journal of the Korea Institute of Military Science and Technology, volume 18, issue 6, 2015, Pages 829~834
DOI : 10.9766/KIMST.2015.18.6.829
A simple and sensitive hydrogel-based detecting gel has been presented for the qualitative determination of cyanogen chloride(CK) using Konig reaction. To optimize Konig reaction conditions, the effects of pyridine and barbituric acid concentration were investigated. Under the optimized conditions, CK gas concentration was directly related with absorbance change at 567 nm. Based on aqueous solution test results, we finally prepared CK detecting hydrogel by absorbing pyridine and barbituric acid solution. Color change of the prepared CK detecting hydrogel was clearly observed when the detecting gel was exposed to 10 ppm CK gas.
