Abstract This paper will discuss the progress of the Army Lightweight Exo-Atmospheric Projectile (LEAP) Program in the development and demonstration of light weight technologies for kinetic energy kill vehicles. The Army LEAP program is demonstrating these advanced technologies by integrating them into the smallest and lightest interceptor technology demonstrator being developed for the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization. The LEAP design and the results of the final two tests in the ground test program, a full up strapdown test and a free flight hover test, will be discussed as well as future design enhancements and test plans.
