Abstract:

RECENTLY, TO AVOID THE DIFFICULTIES OF FRONTAL ATTACK OF MODERN ARMOR VEHICLES, FLY-OVER-SHOOT-DOWN MISSILES HAVE BEEN PROPOSED. HOWEVER, TESTS HAVE SHOWN THAT THE RESULTING CROSSING VELOCITY CAN REDUCE THE PENETRATION OF CONVENTIONAL SHAPED-CHARGE WARHEADS BY UP TO 60%. THEREFORE, A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP AN IMPROVED WARHEAD FOR TOP-ATTACK APPLICATION. FIRST, THE FEASIBILITY OF TWO NOVEL ADVANCED CONCEPTS WILL BE EXAMINED. THEN, A PENETRATION COMPUTER CODE, MODIFIED TO ACCOUNT FOR CROSSING VELOCITY, WILL BE USED TO GENERATE AN IMPROVED WARHEAD DESIGN, FROM AN ADVANCED CONCEPT OR A MORE CONVENTIONAL TYPE. IN PHASE II, THE WARHEAD WILL BE FURTHER OPTIMIZED THROUGH AN ITERATIVE PROCESS OF DESIGN, FABRICATION, TESTING, AND ANALYSIS.
