Abstract : A ground-based Portable Miniature Interceptor weapon system has been conceptualized to fulfill the important mission of killing/negating cruise missiles in flight. A preliminary PMI design concept offers a weapon weighing under 150 pounds with an approximately hemispherical intercept volume having a diameter of about 10 miles. The paper describes the CONOPS, PMI design, component characteristics and packaging, and performance against cruise missiles in a representative mission scenario.
