Abstract
Smart weapons are expected to autonomously seek out and attack a wide variety of strategic and tactical targets. These targets are assumed to be hidden, camouflaged, covered with foliage and at locations not accurately known in advance of the mission. To be effective, however, a sensor suite must be provided that is compatible with the constraints imposed by the smart weapons in terms of size, weight, power and cost limitations. The sensor suite must provide for navigation, target detection, acquisition, identification and verification under adverse (all) weather conditions. This study surveys the current and projected future status of a family of smart weapon sensors potentially capable of performing all the sensing tasks required by these weapons.
