The need for novel weapons to defeat urban targets and rapidly immobalize enemy combatants hiding in bunkers, caves, and basements requires new weapons and tactics. Thermobaric warheads can provide tailored blast response optimized for the defeat of these targets with low collateral damage. In this Phase I SBIR program, Powdermet will develop surface-coated metallic particles that can deliver tailored blast, sustained pressure, and controlled thermal effects enabled by controlling particle composition, size, and shape. In addition, a 20-L high pressure dust bomb energetic materials screeing test facility will be established, analyzed, coupled to the CFX (ANSYS) code, and validated as a screening and development tool to support solid fuel combustion and thermobaric charge development efforts.
