Abstract
The technical approach for preventing obscurant agglomeration must be multi-pronged; studying not only particle structure, but also explosive impulse loading, grenade burst pressure and composite geometry. The solution to particle agglomeration reduction and improved obscurant performance will most likely be obtained through small advances in multiple areas. Computer modeling may also be utilized to predict particle scattering, density gradients, and compaction. However, considering the complex nature of modeling randomized elements, Capco has chosen a path primarily focused on Test and Evaluation. Considering the limited funds available for this effort, it is believed that a T&E approach will provide Army Edgewood Chemical and Biological Command (ECBC) with tangible knowledge and test results versus a more theoretical approach favoring simulations.
