The United States is increasingly involved in conflicts occurring in urban areas, with the resultant increased possibility for unwanted collateral damage, to both civilians and infrastructure, such as buildings, by projectiles that miss their intended targets. General Sciences, Incorporated (GSI) proposes to address the need for safe, effective projectiles by designing and evaluating several versions of reactive projectiles that will have a pre-determined lifetime before self-destruct so as to prevent damage downrange given a miss on target. GSI will investigate several different approaches in the design of this type of projectile, including concepts involving high density modified metal composites and other concepts which will provide enhanced penetration of RAM cases and enhanced destruction of the target contents.
