Abstract:

General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) will design, produce, evaluate and characterize reactive shaped charge liners (RSCL) that possess high density (9-16 g/cc), exothermicity (T>2000K), storage stability and the ability to defeat improvised explosive devices (IEDs), chemical and biological weapons and provide a wall breaching capability. GSI will use metal-metal composites that possess high density, high strength (>20,000 psi tensile, 50,000 psi compression), machinability, non-toxicity and safe handling characteristics. Machining of the liners will be done in-house and sample liners will be provided to the Army as requested. All supporting data demonstrating the performance of the GSI RSCL will be provided to the Army.
