Title
(EN) A DETACHABLE PROJECTILE MODULE SYSTEM FOR OPERATION WITH A FLYING VEHICLE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE MODULE DE PROJECTILE AMOVIBLE DESTINÉ À ÊTRE UTILISÉ AVEC UN VÉHICULE VOLANT
Abstract
(EN)
A projectile module is attached to a gun component which operates as a system to launch a projectile at a flying device. The gun component is configured to be removably and electro- mechanically attached to a flying vehicle. A cylindrical gas valve is part of the gun component and has a safety component configured on an exterior surface of the cylindrical gas valve to enable the gun component only to attach to the flying vehicle when the projectile module is locked into position. A splitter component configured on the gun component adjacent to the cylindrical gas valve and has an output opening for gas flow. The projectile module is removable and includes weights attached to a projectile, wherein the weights are positioned in channels on the projectile module. The projectile is fired when gas flow is initiated from a reservoir the cylindrical gas valve and splitter component to the channels containing the weights.

L'invention concerne un module de projectile fixé à un élément d'arme qui fonctionne comme un système permettant de lancer un projectile vers un dispositif volant. L'élément d'arme est conçu afin d'être fixé de manière amovible et électromécanique à un véhicule volant. Une soupape de gaz cylindrique fait partie de l'élément d'arme et comporte un élément de sécurité conçu sur une surface extérieure de la soupape de gaz cylindrique afin de permettre à l'élément d'arme de se fixer uniquement au véhicule volant lorsque le module de projectile est verrouillé en position. Un élément de diviseur conçu sur l'élément d'arme adjacent à la soupape de gaz cylindrique présente une ouverture de sortie pour un écoulement de gaz. Le module de projectile est amovible et comprend des poids fixés à un projectile, les poids étant positionnés dans des canaux sur le module de projectile. Le projectile est déclenché lorsqu'un écoulement de gaz est déclenché à partir d'un réservoir, la soupape de gaz cylindrique et l'élément de séparateur vers les canaux contenant les poids.
