Abstract
(EN)
A projectile (10) reconfigures in flight from a launch configuration, in which the center of gravity is aft of the center of pressure, to a flight configuration, in which the center of gravity is forward of the center of pressure. The projectile includes a forward portion (12) and an aft portion (14), and the reconfiguration involves movement of at least part of one of the portions relative to the other portion. The projectile may have an overall substantially conical shape when in the launch configuration. The forward portion may include a substantially conical nose (20), and a cylindrical central body (22) attached to the nose. In the launch configuration, at least part of the central body may be located within a hollow (26) in a base (24) of the aft portion. The base may be slidable relative to the central body.

Un projectile (10) se transforme en vol pour passer d'une configuration de lancement, dans laquelle le centre de gravité est situé en arrière par rapport au centre de pression, à une configuration de vol, dans laquelle le centre de gravité est situé en avant par rapport au centre de pression. Le projectile comprend une portion avant (12) et une portion arrière (14), la transformation impliquant un déplacement d'au moins une partie d'une des portions par rapport à l'autre portion. Le projectile peut avoir une forme globale sensiblement conique lorsqu'il est dans la configuration de lancement. La portion avant peut comprendre une pointe (20) sensiblement conique, et un corps central (22) cylindrique fixé à la pointe. Dans la configuration de lancement, au moins une partie du corps central peut être située à l'intérieur d'un espace creux (26) prévu dans une base (24) de la portion arrière. La base peut coulisser par rapport au corps central.
