Abstract:

A new concept for the explosive generation and rapid dispersal of chaff for electronic countermeasures has been investigated. Promising results were obtained in static tests but these and theoretical estimates of radar cross section conflicted with the very low values actually obtained in experiments monitored by radar. Very short bloom times were realized in these experiments. Author
