  • Target Detection Device incorporating ARL technology passes second flight test

    Apr 10, 2012

    Recently, the Target Detection Device (TDD) successfully passed its second flight test at Eglin Air Force base on the U.S Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) Kinetic Energy Active Protection System (KEAPS) interceptor. The TDD is an Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) hardened version of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's (ARL) Passive Infrared Proximity Sensor designed by the Weapons and Materials Research Directorate (WMRD). The technology employed by the TDD was developed by WMRD from 2001 to 2006 during the Infrared Proximity Sensor for Active Protection Countermunitions program. The device used an innovative optic design to exploit the infrared signatures of KE projectiles in a potentially compact sensor. There is one more flight test set for May 2012, followed by the interceptor demonstrations in August and September of 2012.
