Intercept Detection System
Battelle addressed this challenge by developing an intercept detection system utilizing an original design to determine the location of impact and analyze how damage is propagated during missile intercept tests. The system has been successful in every test and includes rapid data transmission from missile to ground station.

Additional capabilities:

Payload Design
Battelle also offers expertise in the development of threat-representative payloads, such as high explosive, chemical and biological warfare stimulants, to provide realistic test results.
