The U.S. Army aims to develop leap-ahead munitions, Improvised Explosive Device (IED)-defeat products, and towable artillery systems to increase the combat power of ground troops. Canard flight control surfaces are an effective technology to improve the overall performance and effectiveness of munitions systems. Embedded Canard Actuation Systems (CAS) require new actuation mechanisms that are scalable across multiple caliber systems and can be applied to new projectile designs. IAI, and its collaborators at the University of Maryland, will develop a Canard Actuation System design tool to facilitate the CAS system design process. The product of the program will be based on an integrated multidisciplinary approach that will couple aerodynamics, structures, dynamics, and controls considerations. This tool will enable an in-depth, physical understanding of CAS designs that are easily scalable, lightweight and affordable for munitions and other flight control applications.
