Title
(EN) AERIAL DEPLOYMENT OF AN EXPLOSIVE ARRAY
(FR) LARGAGE ET DEPLOIEMENT AERIEN D'UN RESEAU D'EXPLOSIFS
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention pertains to the aerial deployment of generally planar structures (30). Typically, theses structures are explosive arrays (20). Such explosive arrays (20) are typically used in standoff minefield clearing and breaching on the ground, at river crossings, on beaches, and in shallow water surf zones adjoining beaches. The invention more specifically involves devices and methods for stably deploying such structures (30). This stable deployment is achieved by positioning the structure (30) in a dihedral configuration as it moves through the air.
(FR)
La présente invention se rapporte au largage et déploiement aérien de structures généralement planes (30) qui sont des structures de réseaux d'explosifs (20). Ces réseaux d'explosifs (20) sont généralement utilisés dans le déminage et l'ouverture d'un passage sur le sol, au niveau d'intersections de rivières, sur les plages et dans des zones de surf peu profondes avoisinant les plages. L'invention se rapporte plus particulièrement à des dispositifs et à des procédés visant à déployer de manière stable la structure (30) selon une configuration dièdre au moment où elle se déplace dans l'air.
