Abstract:

Aerosol sprays of paint, epoxy, and other substances can be dispensed by mines and other munitions to disable hostile sensors, vehicles, and weapon systesm. For example, a paint-filled aerosol mine could be designed to detect an approaching vehicle, pop into the air, and eject and aerosol mist of opaque, brightly colored, slovent resistive, electrically conductive paint at the vehicle. The resulting coating would disable perisccopes, vision blocks, windshields, headlamps, lasers, and night vision devices as well as destroy vehicle camouflage. The electrically conductive nature of the paint would serve to ground out communications antennae and disrupt or incapacitate radar/dishes. Tanks and armored vehicles with paint-coated optical surfaces would be hazardous to occupy and their weapon systems would be difficult to employ. Adrosol munitions could be tailored to fit existing mines, mortar rounds, artillery shells, UAV's or missile warheads, thus making them an inexpensive addition to existing inventories. DCS proposes to list and categorize all such aerosol munitions, determine Army requirements, formulate concepts for specific aerosol munitions, and devise optimized functional specifications for at least two types of non-lethal aerosol munitions.
