Abstract : Work is summarized on a study of ballistic missile phenomenology of interest in the design of ballistic missile defense systems. Part one discusses electromagnetic scattering from plasma, atomic, and chemionization processes, simulation techniques, and theoretical missile phenomenology. Part two (AD-328 823) includes evaluation of terminal phase discrimination techniques, and a discussion of planning for the Woomera installation. (Author)
