Abstract:

An elongate fabric sleeve functions as the load bearing strength member for a rocket deployed line charge of explosive charges. The fabric sleeve is contoured by seams sewn to form pockets that separate and snugly cradle the explosive charges and to form passageways between adjacent charges which permit free, unhindered motion of a detonating cord in it. The fabric sleeve strength member flexes as the line charge is launched and emplaced to withstand the severe forces associated with deployment of the line charge and prevents damage to the detonating cord to assure reliable deployment and detonation of the explosive charges.
