Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.I.04. Multi-Purpose Individual Munition (MPIM). By the end of FY96, demonstrate through an advanced warhead static firing and through all-up missile firings, the technologies capable of meeting the User’s ROC requirements for lethality and safely firing from enclosures. The challenge by the end of FY97 is to integrate the USMC SRAW flight module and MPIM warhead technologies into a system with a carry weight of 20 lbs., meet the lethality and fire from enclosure requirements, and be affordable. Measure of performance is lethality against a variety of diverse targets, thus requiring the soldier to carry only one weapon in lieu of three weapons.

Supports: MPIM ROC, 21st Century Land Warrior, SRAW, and Congressional Direction in 94 Budget.
