Title
(EN) ARTILLERY PROJECTILE WITH SEPARATELY CONTROLLED BOOSTER ACTUATION AND FRAGMENT DISPERSION
(FR) PROJECTILE D'ARTILLERIE AVEC DISPERSION DE FRAGMENTS ET ACTIONNEMENT DE PROPULSEUR D'APPOINT COMMANDÉS SÉPARÉMENT
Abstract
(EN)
An artillery projectile for firing from an artillery gun, mortar or artillery rocket launcher. The artillery projectile includes a body, a payload with a number of inert fragments located within the body, a booster motor associated with the body for accelerating the body with the payload to a penetration velocity, and an opening arrangement associated with the body and deployed for initiating release of the fragments. The artillery projectile further includes a control system causally associated with the booster motor and the opening arrangement. The control system is configured to generate a first command to actuate the booster motor and a second command to actuate the opening arrangement.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un projectile d'artillerie pour mise à feu à partir d'une pièce d'artillerie, d'un mortier ou d'un lance-roquette d'artillerie. Le projectile d'artillerie comprend un corps, une charge utile avec un certain nombre de fragments inertes disposés à l'intérieur du corps, un moteur de propulseur d'appoint associé au corps pour accélérer le corps avec la charge utile à une vitesse de pénétration, et un dispositif d'ouverture associé au corps et déployé pour amorcer la libération des fragments. Le projectile d'artillerie comprend en outre un système de commande associé causalement au moteur de propulseur d'appoint et au dispositif d'ouverture. Le système de commande est configuré pour générer une première commande afin d'actionner le moteur de propulseur d'appoint et une seconde commande afin d'actionner le dispositif d'ouverture.
