Abstract
The overall objective of the project described in this proposal is to design and develop the technology for a non-lethal munition for area denial to personnel. This projectile delivers relatively the same quantity and quality of force to targets that range from just in front of the launcher to a target as far away as two kilometers. This is achieved by a carefully engineered projectile that flies at a nearly constant velocity and then changes its configuration just prior to impacting the target. This project is also designed to deliver secondary payloads as it performs its primary kinetic impact function. Secondary payloads will include electro-incapacitation systems. The proposed technology is a new application of existing civilian technology and hence can be manufactured at low cost. Eventually, the non-lethal weapon will be deployed from robotic platforms in order to automate the area denial to personnel mission. The proposed project will design, fabricate, flight test and finally demonstrate the ability strike simulated human target at a variety of ranges.
