Abstract
AS A RESULT OF EXTENSIVE WORK SUPPORTED BY THE AIR FORCE, CASED TELESCOPED AMMUNITION (CTA) HAS SUCCESSFULLY BEEN DEMONSTRATED. UNDER THE SPONSORSHIP OF THE NAVY, THE TROUND AMMUNITION CONCEPT, NOTED FOR ITS UNIQUE TRIANGULAR CROSS-SECTION, HAS ALSO BEEN SUCCESSFULLY DEMONSTRATED. THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO INCORPORATE CERTAIN FEATURES OF CASED TELESCOPED AMMUNITION AND DESIGN IMPROVEMENTS INTO THE 25MM TROUND AMMUNITION CONCEPT, RESULTING IN A HYPERVELOCITY 25MM ROUND. CURRENT ESTIMATES INDICATE THAT IT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE TO DEVELOP PROJECTILE MUZZLE VELOCITIES IN EXCESS OF 5000 FEET PER SECONDUSING THE "CASED TELESCOPED TROUND" (CTT) CONFIGURATION. THE PROPOSING COMPANY, VERITAY TECHNOLOGY, IS IN A UNIQUE POSITION TO PERFORM THE PROPOSED EFFORT BASED ON ITS WORK IN SUPPORT OF BOTH THE CURRENT 20 AND 25MM TROUND AMMUNITION CONFIGURATIONS AND ADVANCED DEVELOPMENT OF THE AIR FORCE-S CASED TELESCOPED AMMUNITION.
