Publication NumberUS 8001879Filing StatusIssued PatentAvailabilityUnknownFiling Date2011-01-05Publication Date2011-08-23
A method and apparatus for incorporating nanophase elemental materials and metastable interstitial composite materials into projectiles, projectile fragments, ordnance casings, warheads and structural components. The projectile, fragments and casings include an elemental material capable of oxidizing. A coating material that is capable of preventing oxidation of the elemental material and an oxidizing agent may be present and be capable of reacting with the elemental material so that a self-p…

The present invention discloses and claims an apparatus and method for delivering a wide array of selected agents to a target from stand-off distances. The apparatus includes a self-destruct frangible projectile made of primary, binding, and active components. The primary component generally has a specific gravity greater than lead, and the binding component generally has a specific gravity less than lead. The active component may be a metal for penetrating the target, a dye for optically mar…

A triacetone triperoxide cloud associated with a triacetone triperoxide explosive attached to a hard target is remotely detected by operating differential-absorption lidar lasers to transmit a laser beam toward the hard target at differing wavelengths. A backscattered laser beam reflected from the lidar target (hard target, person, aerosols, clouds, buildings) is detected because a cloud of triacetone triperoxide in front of the lidar target and between the lidar target and the differential-a…

The present invention discloses and claims a frangible projectile and method for delivering a wide array of selected agents to a target from stand-off distances. The frangible projectile may include fluorescent or optical powders and may provide a method for marking and detecting a target of interest. Alternately, the frangible projectile may include inert nano-powders and may provide a method for preventing a high-order detonation of a target containing explosive material from stand-off dist…

Small caliber projectiles, explosively driven fragments and micro-sized (cm3) warheads fabricated from Metastable Interstitial Composite (MIC) reactive materials are emerging as potential payloads for countermeasure systems against Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (RAM) threats. Some MIC composites have demonstrated energy values up to 10 kcal per gram, a level exceeding that of Tri-Nitro Toluene (TNT) by more than a factor of 10. The exploitation of such energies and the ability to apply it to …

Small caliber ballistically fired projectiles, explosively driven fragments and micro-sized (CM3) warheads fabricated from reactive materials are emerging as potential payloads for air, space, surface, and subterranean micro and larger scale delivery systems. Under laboratory and small scale testing platforms, various types of Metastable Intermolecular Composite (MIC) materials have demonstrated calculated energy densities up to 10 kcal per gram. This energy level exceeds that of Tri-Nitro …

NEWTEC Services Group, Inc. (NEWTEC) has developed a new family of frangible projectiles that are able to penetrate both hard and soft targets, disintegrate into their original powder constituents during impact and/or penetration, and fracture/contaminate the fill of an explosive item. Penetrations are achieved without an exit hole with all projectile material dispersed within the target volume. The insertion of reactive materials, inert binders, and oxidizers into the explosive fill prevents…
