Abstract:

The U.S. Army, as well as other national military services, requires new and innovative energetic/reactive materials to produce next generation munitions. Munitions of today contain a high amount of inert material, usually steel, that serves as structural elements and fragment generation. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) proposes to replace steel with reactive material that is capable of supporting a load, forming reactive fragments when the munition is detonated, produces temperatures in excess of 2000 K and has an exothermic energy output greater than 2000 cal/g. GSI has produced many reactive materials and currently has two candidates that are very likely to meet and exceed these goals. This approach is based on exploiting reactive materials (developed by GSI) which have shown a high degree of promise in meeting the Army's goals.
