Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce lethal fire and casualties which translates well to that of CBW threat. Often, it is possible to cause release of an active CBW from the confining structure of a production due to blast and overpressure if a tradition high explosive weapon is used. The resulting facility or containment vessel breech can result in a CBW laced plume which can have disastrous consequences. To combat this risk, Hyperion Technology Group (Hyperion) in partnership with Battelle propose to further expand the successful work completed under the Phase I SBIR High Power Munitions to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction contract number HDTRA-1-15-P-0058 to develop a second generation X-ray system and conduct a series of static arena test against targets of interest to demonstrate the utility of a fully developed weaponized X-ray source for use as a Directed Energy Weapon on
