Multipurpose Reactive Materials
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) will demonstrate the benefits of reactive material technology to the US Army and will demonstrate the potential methods of incorporation of reactive materials into current and next generation Army munitions systems, including the SCORPION projectile, Multiple Threat Objective Projectile (MTOP), enhanced thermobaric explosives and devices, Electromagnetic Gun capabilities, Scalable Effects warheads and other areas of interest. GSI has developed a casting method to incorporate suitable reactive materials within a support matrix, creating strong, reactive structures that can replace inert mass non-parasitically and lead to an increase in lethality. GSI formulations have been incorporated into thermobaric devices, agent defeat warheads, reactive fragments, reactive projectiles, anti-land mine systems, shaped charge liners, and several other areas of interest to the DoD. GSI will supply devices and technical knowledge to the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to increase the database of reactive materials and provide the US Army with next generation munitions payloads capable of enhanced lethality effects.
