Abstract:

NEWTEC Services Group, Inc. (NEWTEC) has developed a new family of frangible projectiles that are able to penetrate both hard and soft targets, disintegrate into their original powder constituents during impact and/or penetration, and fracture/contaminate the fill of an explosive item. Penetrations are achieved without an exit hole with all projectile material dispersed within the target volume. The insertion of reactive materials, inert binders, and oxidizers into the explosive fill prevents and/or modifies a detonation by rapidly altering one or more of the elements of the explosive fuel, oxygen and temperature equation. NEWTEC has further explored the incorporation of reactive materials comprised of metastable interstitial composites (MICs) into its frangible projectiles to provide a new generation of munitions that exhibit scalable terminal effects with incendiary and overpressure properties. This capability provides options to apply both kinetic and thermal effects to multiple target sets using existing weapons platforms. Additionally, a small caliber MIC projectile could provide an agent defeat capability through high thermal impact against suspected biological agents or other threats of concern. NEWTEC's existing frangible projectile patent covers the application and blending of numerous reactive, inert and binding materials to further expand this utility and multiple fields of use.
