Research Institution
Physical Sciences Inc. proposes to demonstrate and quantify a unique high performance, insensitive munition compliant, structural combustible cartridge case for ammunitions that would significantly augment the ballistic performance. This new formulation will increase the ballistic energy, impetus, and muzzle velocity, while simultaneously eliminating combustion residue and providing insensitivity munition compliancy. This unique low cost combustible ordnance will provide the structural integrity to ensure reliable gun operation. In Phase I, the combustible cartridge cases ballistic and mechanical integrity will be quantified to define specific performance metrics to demonstrate operational feasibility. The results from this activity will serve to define critical system level parameters of the targeted prototype ammunition demonstration in Phase II.
