Abstract:

Free flight and impact pattern data were obtained for three types of S-curve bomblets launched singly and in clusters from a low pressure air gun. The tests were conducted to check impact patterns and possible interaction among bomblets when fired in groups. The air gun was used as an economical means of simulating air drops. The bomblets were designed to obtain an S-shaped pitching moment versus angle of attack curve where the bomblet trims at a non-zero angle of attack. This produces a radial lift force which increases the amount of dispersion. Control groups of ballistic bomblets were used to compare the impact patterns.
