Abstract:

QUANTIC PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE SEVERAL UNIQUE METHODS OF DIRECTLY DETONATING INSENSITIVE HIGH EXPLOSIVES WITH A SMALL, 750 MJ, 1.06 MICRON, Q-SWITCHED LASER. ONE TECHNIQUE USES MULTIPLE LASER PULSES WITH REFLECTED SHOCK AUGMENTATION. A SECOND TECHNIQUE USES SLAPPER INITIATION TECHNOLOGY, AND ANOTHER USES SHOCK INTERFERENCE EFFECTS. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT A TACTICAL MISSILE COMPATIBLE LASER CAN BE DEVELOPED TO DIRECTLY INITIATE DETONATION IN HIGHLY INSENSITIVE EXPLOSIVES.
