Abstract
Reactive Warheads increase lethality by igniting propellants and fuel, by melting and destroying electronic components, by providing blast overpressure inside of a target after impact, and by providing thermal energy to destroy chemical and bilogical agents. In the Phase I program, Powdermet demonstrated the production and fabrication of Metal-Polymer-salt micro/nano-scale engineered composites with tailorable high energy release, density, and the ability to be fabricated into structural shapes. This proposed Phase II SBIR program will continue the development effort to optimize these reactive composites for fragmenting case and structural components.
