Abstract:

This report discusses the design and development of the BLU-30B23 bomblet. The BLU-30B23 is a submunition cluster bomblet designed for delivery from the SUU-13A dispenser. It provides, upon ground impact, thermal dissemination of agents CS or BZ. Theoretical area coverage and effectiveness of this bomblet for use in various counterinsurgency situations are also presented. Submunition dissemination tests conducted at Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute IITRI during this program demonstrated efficiencies as high as 76 percent for CS and 40 percent for BZ.
