Abstract
DEVELOPMENT OF AN ARMOR PIERCING PROJECTILE DESIGNED TO PERFORATE DOUBLE-HULLED UNDERWATER SUBMARINE TARGETS IS PROPOSED. THE LIMITING VELOCITY NEEDED TO PERFORATE THE TARGET IS OBTAINED USING A UNIQUE CONCEPT. THE PROPELLER WILL BE DELIVERED WITH A STANDARD SIZE TORPEDO AND UPON INITIAL IMPACT, WILL BE ACCELERATED TO THE DESIRED TERMINAL VELOCITY. PHASE I OF THE PROJECT WILL CONSIST OF A DESIGN FEASIBILITY STUDY COMPLETE WITH DRAWINGS FOR INITIAL TESTING. PHASE II WILL CONSIST OF FURTHER DESIGN, PROTOTYPING AND TESTING OF THE WEAPON. THE CONCEPT WILL BE DEVELOPED IN COOPERATION WITH APPLIED ORDNANCE TECHNOLOGY, INC.
