Abstract
To address the Army need for a non-lethal warhead for use on miniature organic precision munitions, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Malodorous Non-Lethal Grenade (MNLG) optimized for use on miniature munitions. This proposed grenade is based on a new design that utilizes both government developed and POC developed and tested components. The innovation in the grenade design and its delivery to the target will enable the accuracy and effective incapacitation of enemy personnel while assuring non-lethality and low probability of collateral damages. The grenade design satisfies stringent requirements on the size and weight of the non-lethal warhead as well as on manufacturing the warhead at low cost, thus directly addressing the Army requirements. In Phase I, POC will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed grenade design and its capability of interfacing with munitions systems. In Phase II, POC will demonstrate and test the breadboard warhead prototype and prepare it for the flight test in Phase III.
