Abstract:

A solid propellant gas generator operating with a calibrated tunable resonator produces a strong sonic field capable of affecting particle coagulation in an aerosol. The resonator is calibrated to produce a sonic field at the optimum frequency for a given aerosol and can be changed according to the aerosol involved. The resultant coagulation increases visibility andor electromagnetic transmissibility within the sonic field. The device can be used to reduce obscuration during battlefield operations. Author
