Abstract:

Upon successful completion of the proposed program, an accelerant payload concept shall be developed and evaluated. The use of an accelerant payload allows the munitions system designer the capability to exploit a thermal target defeat mechanism, inaddition to coupling to traditional high explosive/fragmentation defeat mechanisms, to increase the overall target lethality. The use of a thermal accelerant payload allows for the enhanced defeat of combustible materiel within a target volume includingthat located outside the primary area of weapon effects due to fire start and fire spread. Additionally, the selection of the accelerant payload composition can result in the actual structure of the target (ex., iron and steel girders and beams, concrete)contributing to the degree of target defeat which are not usually thought to be considered a
