Development of Tuneable Effects Warheads

MARK REYNOLDS, WILLIAM HUNTINGTON-THRESHER

Abstract


The tuneable effects warhead concept is based on QinetiQ patented [1] technology, previously explored using bare explosive charges [2]. This work showed significant differences in peak blast pressures between two detonation modes (35%), while maintaining quasi-static pressure. The study reported here looked at developing a metal cased variant with the aim to demonstrate a tuneable fragmentation output, whilst maintaining the demonstrated blast performance.
