The report describes the design and preliminary development of a self-consuming, colored smoke grenade. This consumable grenade effort was a continuation of the LWL Midi Smoke Grenade program as reported in Technical Report No. LWL-CR-09F70. The consumable grenade retrains the basic size and output of the Midi Grenade, and provides the additional feature of self- destruction so that the grenade components become unusable by an enemy as booby trap hardware. A quantity of one-hundred consumable grenades of smoke colors red, green, and violet, were fabricated. These units were evaluated and were found satisfactory for smoke quality, output and consumability.
