Abstract:

In order to disperse CS-2 more effectively for terrain denial, pellets containing 75 CS-2 mixed with 25 calcium carbide have been formed. These pellets do not aerosolize directly when dropped from a fifty foot height nor do they aerosolize on impact with the ground. After impact with the ground, the carbide reacts with atmospheric moisture and the pellet disintegrates leaving CS-2 deposited on the ground in a readily aerosolizable form.
