Title
(EN) KINETIC ENERGY ROD WARHEAD WITH PROJECTILE SPACING
(FR) CONE DE CHARGE A TIGES D'ENERGIE CINETIQUE AVEC ESPACEMENT POUR LE PROJECTILE
Abstract
(EN)
A kinetic energy rod warhead bay configuration includes a plurality of bays. Each bay includes a plurality of rods, an explosive for deploying the rods, and a detonator for detonating the explosive. One bay is structured and arranged as a first bay. One bay is structured and arranged as a last bay with rods configured to have more drag than the rods of the first bay. At least one other bay is structured and arranged as an intermediate bay. The rods of the intermediate bay are configured to have more drag than the rods of the first bay but less drag than the rods of the last bay to space apart the rod sets of the bays upon deployment.

Cette invention concerne une configuration en compartiments d'un cône de charge à tiges d'énergie cinétique, comprenant plusieurs compartiments. Chaque compartiment contient plusieurs tiges, un explosif pour déployer les tiges et un détonateur pour la mise à feu de l'explosif. L'un des compartiments est structuré et agencé pour servir de premier compartiment et un autre compartiment est structuré et agencé pour servir de dernier compartiment, les tiges de ce dernier compartiment étant configurées de façon à posséder une force de traînée plus grande que les tiges du premier compartiment. Au moins un troisième compartiment est structuré et agencé pour servir de compartiment intermédiaire. Les tiges de ce compartiment intermédiaire sont configurées pour posséder une force de traînée plus grande que les tiges du premier compartiment mais moins grande que les tiges du dernier compartiment, de façon à espacer les groupes de tiges des compartiments au moment du déploiement.
