Abstract:

This report documents the results of experiments conducted by the joint efforts of the United States U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center AMRDEC and Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center ARDEC in support of the Joint Insensitive Munitions Program JIMTP Tube-Launched, Optically Tracked, Wire-Guided TOW 2B Insensitive Munitions IM Warhead effort. The referenced experiments were conducted to determine the velocity reduction and fragmentation profile of barrier materials subjected to impact by the IM Fragment Impact FI test. Velocity reduction and the distribution in collected fragment sizes are presented for a total of 40 impact tests.
