Electromagnetic Explosive Warhead (EMEW) for Scalable Lethal and Nonlethal Effects
Enig Associates, Inc., a woman-owned, small business providing advanced modeling and simulation capabilities to the DoD and DoE, is proposing an innovative and novel electrical approach, using explosive-driven flux compression generators (FCG) to convert explosive chemical energy to electromagnetic energy with very high current output and superb energy conversion efficiency and then enhance explosive load to augment reaction zone pressure and detonation speed with electromagnetic energy. Electrical conditioning can also be applied to munition casing to control fragmentation and blast pattern and directionality. The proposed program will use Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control (LMMFC) as our Phase I/II subcontractor and is complementary to our DARPA MAHEM Phase 3 program. Both theoretical and computational tools will be utilized in designing an integrated munition with augmented explosion, selectable fragmentation, and controlled blast to provide scalable and adaptive lethal effects against targets.
