Abstract:

A shoulder held man transportable rocket launcher for launching a warhead at an initial angle and velocity such that the trajectory would take the warhead above the target for an overhead kill. Once the warhead is above the target an 1R sensor detects the target and ignites a self forging fragmentation projectile to kill the target. Author
