Abstract:

The proposed program addresses novel materials to fabricate small and medium caliber projectiles. General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) proposes the use of highly exothermic, high density structural reactive materials (RM) to fabricate projectiles that exhibit improved target damage, improved lethality and improved battle damage indications. GSI has several candidate RM that are suitable for evaluation against these goals, one in particular has a density of 7.2 g/cm3, tensile strength of 20,000 psi, compressive strength of 50,000 psi, is easily machined and is ideal for adding chemical energy to the kinetic energy component of standard, inert projectiles.
