Abstract
Veritay proposes to develop a preliminary design of a kinetic energy (KE) payload and expulsion system for the EX172 Cargo round. The payload will consist of numerous KE penetrators. One of the most important aspects of the design is devising a systemfor effectively dispensing the payload from inside the round. To be effective, the individual penetrators of the payload must be dispersed in a uniform pattern over a large footprint. Additionally, they must be dispersed at a high-velocity in acontrolled manner to ensure maximum penetration. If after dispersal the velocity drops too much or the penetrators begin to tumble, their penetrating capability will be diminished.The specific objectives for the Phase I effort are to: 1) Ascertain appropriate design criteria for the payload and expulsion system, 2) Develop a preliminary design of the payload and expulsion system, and 3) Conduct a limited number of experimentsdemonstrating the expulsion system. If provided by the Navy, we will use government furnished Cargo hardware (bodies and base plugs) to conduct expulsion tests. The concepts formulated and developed during the proposed program may be incorporated into ammunition designed to provide a high level of lethality while limiting unintended hazards.
