Abstract:

The program was to design, develop and test an operational downward ejected airstrike munition and marking material. These munitions are nonhazardous substitutes for munitions used in combat to be employed in joint field training exercise to produce air strike realism and provide tangible evidence of the air strike effects for evaluation. The munition designed, developed and tested was a munition configuration based on a barrel stave type canister employing a simple retardation device to actuate munition separation and to decelerate a rigid component to a nonhazardous impact velocity.
