Abstract
COMBINED EFFECTS BOMBLETS (CEB) ARE CURRENTLY FABRICATED OF STEEL. STUDIES HAVE INDICATED THAT AN INCREASE IN LETHALITY WOULD BE ACHIEVED IF THE CEB WERE REDESIGNED TO HAVE A TUNGSTEN BODY. PREVIOUS INVESTIGATIONS USING POWER METALLURGY (P.M.) TUNGSTEN CEB'S WERE UNSUCCESSFUL DUE TO MATERIAL CONTROL PROBLEMS. ULTRAMET PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THAT TUNGSTEN CEB'S CAN BE FABRICATED BY CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) WHICH WILL OVERCOME THE P.M. PROBLEMS. ULTRAMET ALSO PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE CEB'S FABRICATED BY CVD CAN BE MORE COST EFFECTIVE THAN STEEL CEB'S.
