Abstract:

Under funding from DARPA, Nomadics has demonstrated the potential for deploying multi-gun fixtures as a means of defeating rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs). These early tests have created a database that will be invaluable in advancing the work toward optimization of the initial concept through enhancements in both the gun fixture and the projectiles as well as in the defeat strategies based on this approach. Under the currently proposed work, we will focus on optimization of the projectiles. By designing novel projectiles one can increase the probability of disrupting the warhead of an RPG or destroy the fuzing system such that the warhead does not high order. During Phase I, optimization enhancements will be demonstrated to show that these early prototypes should be further refined in Phase II. Nomadics' initial work in this area as well as the company's rapid prototyping efforts will help to ensure that the envisioned system moves quickly toward acquisition and deployment to meet this urgent need.
