Abstract:

BASED UPON EARLIER EXPERIMENTAL WORK, IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT ULTRASONIC RADIATION OF THE PROPER FREQUENCY WOULD PRECIPITATE SMOKE AND AEROSOLS WITHIN THE RADIATION PATTERN. THE PURPOSE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO EXPERIMENTALLY PROVE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE CONCEPT TO CLEAR SMOKE AND AEROSOLS FROM A BATTLEFIELD. TWO SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS WILL BE STUDIED, 1) TO CREATE A SMALL AREA OF CLEAR AIR TO TARGET TACTICAL WEAPONS, AND 2) TO PROVIDE A CLEAR PATH TO SAFELY MANEUVER BATTLEFIELD VEHICLES. SOME THEORETICAL WORK HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED BUT MANY YEARS AGO. WITH MODERN PIEZO-ELECTRIC TRANSDUCERS AND ELECTRONICS THE EFFECT MAY PROVIDE THE ARMY WITH A VERY USEFUL TACTICAL TOOL. LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED USING A SCALE MODEL OF AN ARRAY OF TRANSDUCERS TO DETERMINE OPTIMUM FREQUENCY, SCALE FACTORS, AND OVERALL EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CONCEPT. VISUAL PROOF OF CONCEPT IS EXPECTED.
