Research Institution
The Army's SBIR Topic A04-010, Innovative Wall Penetration Munition, seeks a munition capable of penetrating an 8-inch concrete wall that also features a follow-through effect. DE Technologies Inc herein proposes to investigate the adaptation of their high performance small munitions designs to the M433 High Explosive Dual Purpose Grenade. Coupled with the advanced shaped charge liner design is the inclusion of an energetic material that follows the jet through the concrete wall to promote additional lethality or disorienting effects. This technology approach is highly desirable as it modifies an approved munition and works with the current M203 delivery system. This approach minimizes the impact on the training, integration, support and logistics associated with new weapon systems and provides the soldier a more effective MOUT tool in a shorter development cycle.
