This report summarizes the work accomplished in the development, fabrication, and testing of an improved castable colored smoke and flame marker composition for use in the LUU-2B Target Marker and in the 2.75-Inch Target Marking Warhead. A red flame, a yellow flame, and a red flame and smoke were developed for the LUU-2B Target Marker, while red, yellow, and orange smokes, along with red and yellow flames, were developed for the 2.75-Inch Target Marking Warhead. Development effort included composition ingredients, insulation, and ignition systems. LUU-2B tests were conducted from a tower and from aircraft, while the 2.75-Inch Target Marking Warhead was tested using a launcher to simulate actual warhead conditions. The development program was successful. The systems are ready for engineering development and pilot production. Author
