Abstract : Complete design considerations for the AOMC 8,000-kw plasma facility are reviewed. Both facility requirements and performance characteristics are di cussed for typical minimum energy ICBM and IRBM reentry trajectories. Calculated stagnation conditions are shown to be in the realm f modern plasma arc technology. Capability of the installed electric generation system is shown to be adequate to meet requirements.
