round can detonate in two ways--upon impact of the intended target or in a delay mode where it will penetrate a target, then detonate at a pre-determined time.
Most rocket weapons and recoilless rifles are limited to HEAT or HEDP
Its Mercury HEDP
not only allows one to reach targets at ranges of 800 metres, but its bigger warhead with a fragmentation sleeve increased fragmentation by 45%.
Returning to Nammo, a disposable version of the Mk 153, known as M141 Smaw-D Bunker Defeat Munition using the same Mk 3 HEDP
round was produced in the 1990s, This opens man-sized breaches in concrete and triple brick walls, pictures showing openings of more than one metre in diameter.
These funds will be applied toward the joint HEDP
ST Kinetics Supply 40 mm HV HEDP
& HV F&B ammunition
He said the central question to both HEDP
and fusion is "How can heavy ion beams be compressed to the high intensities required for creating high energy density matter and fusion?
The CAS (Chemical Abstract Service) registry number for HEDP
Nammo Talley used the HEDP
rocket to develop the M141 Disposable Smaw (Smaw-D) to meet a US Army requirement for a Bunker Defeat Munition.
The resulting 4 nanosecond pulse puts heavy ion beams, for the first time, within range of the pulse lengths necessary for meaningful HEDP
experiments and for fusion power application.
Trainees can now engage simulated targets with air burst or impact using the simulated FFV441 HE round, impact and delay with the FFV502 HEDP
round, illuminate or obscure the battlefield with the FFV545 Illumination or FFV469 Smoke rounds and engage armoured vehicles with the FFV551 HEAT rounds.
The objective 40-mm Airburst Family comprises the Mk 285 round (which was qualified in 2006), an improved M430 HEDP
round and a Programmable Training Round that provides a visible airburst signature.
