Abstract
CURRENT FUZES FOR CARGO DISPENSING PROJECTILES CAN ALSO BE FITTED WITH A HIGH EXPLOSIVE (HE) BOOSTER PELLET AND USED TO INITIATE HE BURSTER TYPE PROJECTILES. ITI PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SHAPE CHARGE FUZE THAT WILL DETONATE BOTH PROJECTILES. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL INCLUDE ANALYSIS OF THE EXISTING PROJECTILE CONFIGURATIONS AND EXPLOSIVE/PROPELLANT CONTENT, SELECTION OF A SUITABLE SHAPE CHARGE CONFIGURATION AND LINER MATERIAL THROUGH TESTING AT DESIGN CHARGE SIZES, AND FABRICATION AND TESTING OF TWO PROTOTYPE FUZES. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SHAPE CHARGE FUZE FOR THIS APPLICATION WOULD BE COMPATIBLE WITH THE IMMINENT FUTURE UPGRADE OF PROJECTILE HE'S WITHIN THE INSENSITIVE MUNITIONS PROGRAM TO PLASTIC BONDED EXPLOSIVES.
