Engineers using missile intercept data for sensor-based research

AUBURN – Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering is actively engaged in developing technologies similar to those demonstrated in last Friday’s flight test conducted by the Missile Defense Agency. The Department of Defense agency announced last week that it successfully completed this exercise involving a ground-based interceptor missile.

The long-range ballistic target was tracked using integrated command and control with several land- and sea-based radars, which are critical for tracking objects accurately in space. Auburn researchers are participating in the development of a myriad of related technologies, including sensor-based technology for aviation and avionics projects. Continue reading
