E S Klinke, E Rutzen: 1241. Aspects on the Configuration Optimization Process of Stike – RPVS. 1978.



In order to establish a reasonable Strike-RPV-concept, consideration is to be given to the sizing features such as:
– Navigational accuracy
– Weapon delivery accuracy
– Simplified Structural Design
An other important design requirement is mission flexibility, which results in a high degree of modularity.
Results of investigations carried out so far and their effects on mass and cost will be presented.
The strike mission is the most demanding task for remotely controlled vehicles. The integration of contradicting requirements such as:
– high speed low level flight to survive
– precise target acquisitation under bad weather conditions
– effective weapon delivery with small payloads
This paper outlines some aspects of how to attack the major problems o f the RPV in the strike role.
