Abstract:

The objective of this initiative is to conduct a parametric study to quantify the improvements that will make smart projectiles compatible with the M119 system. The improvements can be conducted on, but not limited to, the platform, projectile designs and propellant. Projectile prototype metal parts will be fabricated and producibility will be evaluated and improved. The 105mm artillery platform M119A2 have shown deficiencies in meeting requirements set forth by various smart munitions design envelopes. The need to achieve improved accuracies by means of guidance systems has added mass to the complementary projectiles. The increased launch mass have increased operational stress levels on the weapon platform.
