Abstract
General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) proposes to demonstrate the benefits of high density, reactive polymer based composites capable of surviving gun launch setbacks associated with velocities up to 8000 feet per second, penetrating a target and creating an internal pressure field sufficient to destroy the target. GSI will demonstrate materials with densities greater than 5 g/cm3 and quasi-static pressure generation levels in excess of the current baseline, RM-4. GSI will pursue materials development through incorporation of high density metals in polymer matrices, inclusion of high density metal hydrides in polymer matrices and inclusion of high density oxides in polymer matrices. Such benefits will be demonstrated on a multiphase, twenty four month program based on a) material sample development and characterization, b) ballistic testing and evaluation by NSWC-DD, Dahlgren, to demonstrate gun survivability, adequate target penetration and high quasi-static pressure generation behind steel targets of up to 0.5 inch thick, c) downselect the best material candidates, conduct mechanical property characterization, develop scale-up concepts and demonstrate such capability, d) modeling lethality enhancement due to the chemical energy term as well as provide Weaponization concepts supported by experiments and analytical predictions, and e) with support from government experts and in a team effort transition the technology into Ordnance Insertion and perform evaluation, demonstration and comparison to current ordnance.
