Abstract:

A system and method of disseminating lethal and non-lethal agent within a target to cause respiratory and ocular irritation to animals therein by the use of an agent carrying shaped charge munition. Agent is located in a disposer of special truncated cone shape. The disposer is located in the forward end of the projectile munition. As the projectile impacts and forces its way through a target wall, for example, the special shape of the disposer gives it temporary integrity to withstand external forces and contain this agent until target penetration is realized. The agent is loaded into the disposer and it is assembled to the munition.
