The capabilities of the HEMi compact hypervelocity kinetic energy missile technologies were integrated using modelling and simulation to provide overall missile system performance including kill probability, velocity at the target, flight velocity profile, accuracy, size, mass, launch environment, etc. To achieve this task efficiently, tools were developed for the management of simulation parameter sets, subsystem models, documentation and automatic generation of reports on simulation results. A preliminary concept definition study was performed during the project definition phase. The objective of this study was to verify the feasibility of achieving the massspeed- distance specification with five different airframe/thrust management configurations. Then, a series of parametric studies were done to determine the most appropriate booster shape to achieve the kinematic objective within the stated mass and length constraints. To expedite the HEMi concept refinement process, an effort was made to integrate in a single architecture many of the engineering analysis codes used to analyze and define the model parameter sets of HEMi. The integration of the analysis codes permitted the interdependent variables to be linked, thereby allowing multidisciplinary analysis and optimization of the HEMi concept. The performance of the latest version of HEMi was analyzed through engagement modelling and simulation.
