Abstract
In the interest of promoting precision strike and persistent area dominance, both key factors in the Global War on Terror, there is a need to develop novel means to control the explosive yield of compact munitions. We propose to develop state-of-the-art computational tools to model, design, and deploy advanced initiation technology to control the deflagration-to-detonation transition of high energy density materials, offering the flexibility to package said materials on a variety of platforms while retaining the capability to strike a range of targets with the low collateral damage needed for MOUT enviroments.
