Abstract
We propose to develop an earth penetrator with improved shape for trajectory stability during high-speed penetration. Several promising penetrator shaping concepts have been identified in Phase I. Through further analysis, one or two of these will be selected for further development. Penetrator designs will be formulated and optimized, then tested through gun firings of scale-model penetrators into earth targets.
