Enhanced Stability and Penetration Depth of Deep Earth Penetrators
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DTRA
Three concepts will be evaluated in order to achieve flow separation and penetration enhancement of Earth Penetrating Weapons (EPW). One concept addresses the merit of carrying fluid within the EPW. The other two describe new techniques addressing the generation of gases from the structure of the penetrator accompanied by energy release in the interface. Experimental as well as analytical efforts are proposed leading to the selection of best candidate materials and modeling predictions.
