Abstract:

There is a need to enhance the lethality of US interceptors against ballistic and cruise missiles especially those carrying chem/bio payload. The lethal radius of systems such as THAAD and others can be increased by the insertion of highly energetic composites as reactive materials of various densities. The proposed program describes several formulation approaches for property improvement and scale-up of compositions, which have already demonstrated superior performance is small-scale experiments. Several synthesis concepts are proposed for manufacturing and property evaluation in order to establish physical and reactive properties for consideration and insertion into the selective THAAD system as lethality enhancement options. As a Phase II program scale-up and ballistic evaluation is proposed of a miniature interceptor against a simulated missile target.
