BAYERN-CHEMIE supports NATO-ATV activities

On behalf of the NATO Standard and Training Organisation we would like to invite you and your
colleges to the 2019 Technical Course Unified Tactical Missile Kinetic Performance Model.

A task group formed by the Applied Vehicle Technology Panel of NATO’s Science and
Technology Organization has leveraged the expertise of defence contractors, research
organizations and governmental agencies from five NATO nations to create a unified tactical
missile kinetic performance model.

The model provides consistency and interoperability in defence planning studies and can
eliminate barriers for collaboration. It allows the user to create basic design of a tactical
missile with a choice of different propulsion subsystems. In addition, the code offers an
option to apply Thrust Vector Control and has an easy to use Graphical User Interface.

The participants learn how to select a surface or air-launched mission trajectory and define
the size and shape of a missile body. They learn how to define the appropriate propulsion
choosing between

  • a Solid Propellant Rocket motor, which is still the most common choice today.
  • a Throttleable Ducted Rocket, an advanced air-breathing system for missions
    demanding long range and sustained high speed
  • or potential future candidates for tactical missile propulsion like a rocket motor with
    gelled propellant, a hybrid rocket motor or a Solid Fuel Ramjet
