Research Institution

General Sciences, Inc. (GSI) proposes to incorporate highly exothermic composite reactive materials into the warhead of a Hyper Velocity Projectile (HVP) to provide lethality enhancement in a non-hit-to-kill option. These materials (some developed, improved and tested in the Phase I program) can be used in a non-hit-to-kill option by proper packaging. The proposed concepts, will be subjected to several risk reduction ballistic experiments demonstrating projectile survival at 30,000 g using representitive target materials, components, and structures. Approved for Public Release 19-MDA-10203 (4 Sep 19)
