SIDEWINDER AIR INTERCEPT MISSILE
ABSTRACT
In the present age, a large effort is being made to prevent wars. But the lionâ„¢s share of any countries budget is devoted to defense. Various powerful weapons are used for eliminating the enemy planes, bunkers and tankers. Of this, the most commonly used and effective weapons are missiles. Unlike the old conventional missiles using radar technology which is expensive and problematic, a high level research and testing are going on for improving the accuracy and efficiency of weapons, maximum stress is given to prevent the failure keeping this in mind, an ingenious idea that came up was Heat Seeking Missiles. Side winder missiles are one such missile which was the heat sensing technology. This seminar and presentation will provide an overview of the specification working, parts and advantages of side winder missiles.

The AIM-9 (Air I ntercept Missile - 9) Sidewinder is an air-to-air short range
supersonic heat-seeking missile developed by the U.S. Navy. This weapon has been deployed since the 1950s and is presently used in its various advanced versions. The U.S. naval interceptor aircraft needed a heat seeking missile and the program to develop the AIM-9 was thus initiated. a desert rattlesnake 'Sidewinder' lent its name to the missile due to its ability to detect other animals from their heat emissions. The AIM-9B was one of the first ones in the league and it was readily adopted by the US army. The limitations of this versions included the range limit of 2.6 NM, the top speed of just 1.7 mach and uncooled seeker. Then Navy Sidewinders designated as AIM-9D, G and H were built to overcome these disadvantages.
The proposal to build a missile that would seek out the heat from an enemy aircraft's engine system was put forward by Naval physicist named Bill McLean. the pilot could "fire and forget". As compared to the radar systems, a small heat-sensing photovoltaic cell was all that was needed on the sensing side. This guaranteed a a much lower cost and also a much lower size.
An AIM 9M is 2.9 m long weighing 85kg and with 13cm diameter. It costs a whooping $84,000. It could attain a top speed of 2.9 mach(2.9 times the speed of sound. )
