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


IV.I.09. Warheads for Armor Defeat. In FY96, develop and demonstrate a wide area shaped charge penetrator warhead to provide a 4 fold increase in lethal area against lightly armored target. In FY97, conduct evaluation of more lethal main charge warhead for heavy armor defeat utilizing more powerful explosive and advanced liner material. In FY98, demonstrate warhead design which has selective mode to either defeat a heavy armored target (15 to 20 percent increase in performance compared to Javelin) or a lightly armored target (4 fold increase in lethal area compared to standard Shaped Charge.)
