  1. Less Than Lethal Weapons Requirements for Military Forces

  2. OVERVIEW • The Situation • The Requirement • Terms of Reference • Technology • - Guns • - Ammo • Target Vulnerability • Tactical Application

  3. The Situation • The Fluid Battle Environment • Organized Military Opposition • Unconventional Warfare • Civil Unrest • Non Combatant Screens • Dynamic Rules of Engagement • Currently Limited Response Options • Water Cannons • Sponge Balls • “Rubber” Bullets • Etc.

  4. The Requirement • A Multi Purpose Weapon with Scaleable Lethality • Near instant Scalability from Lethal to Non Lethal and Back • Readily Deployed • Minimum Logistical Tail • Potential for various ammo types: ABM,HE,APDS

  5. NATO Policy Less Than LethalWeapons (LTLW) • Incapacitate or repel personnel, with a low probability of fatality • Expand the range of options available to NATO Military Authorities. • LTLW shall not be required to have zero probability of causing fatalities or permanent injuries.

  6. Design Elements of a Scaleable Kinetic Energy Weapon • Predictable delivery of subprojectiles requires: • MV Correction - Minimize error in range • Accurate Fuzing - Precise distance from the target • Uniformity of the payload - Subprojectiles same size • Uniformity of payload distribution - area coverage

  7. Payload: Subprojectiles 35mm Technology Suite

  8. 35mm revolver cannon

  9. 35mm Air Burst Munition Kinetic Energy Time Fuze (ABM-KETF) – Layout: Note: The payload (500g) is composed of cylindrical W-Subprojectiles (here 3.3 g). For engagements other than AA (e.g. G-to-G) the mass of the subprojectiles can be reduced accordingly (e.g. 1 to 1.5 g)

  10. 35 mm ABM (Ahead) Subprojectile Dynamic Parameters Subprojectile Density Valid for 3.3 g Subprojectiles

  11. 35 mm Air Burst MunitionVarious Payload Arrangements, e.g: Air Defense Version (Ahead) IFV Version 35 mm Caliber SP-diameter: 4.65 mm 11 Layers @ 31 SP (341) of 1.5 g each Subprojectile, SP-diameter: 5.85 mm 8 Layers @ 19 SP (152) of 3.3 g each F2 15201 BB

  12. Payload Foot-Print 35 mm ABM (Ahead): 152 subprojectiles of 3.3 g 35 mm ABM: 341 subprojectiles of 1.5 g

  13. On-line Compensation of Muzzle Velocity Variation Fixed Time Programming On-Line∆Vo - Compensation Firing Range approx. 1600m 400% Improvement 20m 5m

  14. Muzzle Velocity Correction

  15. Mission Roles-Targets • Mission Roles • Dissuasion (from Non-Lethal/Less-Than-Lethal) • Destruction (Lethal Mission Kill/Hard Kill) • Targets (Anti Material/Anti Personnel) • Armored Vehicles • Other Military Vehicles • MOUTS • Troops in bunkers • Troops in open • Civilian Shields

  16. Scaleable ABM Lethality Level 100% Lethal Less-Than-Lethal Lethality Level 0% Fragment Penetration & Hit Density I n c a p a c i t a t i o n D i s s u a s i o n F2 15085 CC

  17. Mission Kill Demonstration with the 35mm Ahead against MBT (Swiss P-68 Upgraded) Details 1F 9707-93 Total: 2 Shots F2 15223 BB

  18. Subprojectile Penetration Capability

  19. Target Vulnerability Criteria (>90%) In a Ground-to-Ground Defense Role(Subprojectile size 3.3gr)

  20. 35 mm Ahead Payload Ejection at 2 km Range: Performance Case: 3.3 g Subprojectiles

  21. Tactical Scenarios Using ABM Point Target (incl. ATGW-Bunker, Prone & Covered Troops, MBT, Helicopter): Area Target (Diffused Targets): Gun Linear Target (e.g. road with vehicles): Pre-Determined Air Space (e.g. swarm of helicopters): Road F2 15081 FF

  22. Air Burst Coverage Effectiveness Eg: 35mm Ahead with 3.3g Subprojectiles

  23. Ahead Payload Growth Potential • Traditional Payload Effects: • Mechanical effects based on KE (Frags / Subprojectiles) • Flash & Bang • Emerging Payload Effects: • Disabling passive effects (against target sensors): Chaff, Phosphor, ... • EM waves effects (against target electronic system): NNEMP: Non-Nuclear EMP, HPM: Hyper Power Microwave, UWB: Ultra Wide Band, ... in directional radiation pattern F2 16337 BD

  24. Summary • Military gun systems can extend their mission capabilities from lethal through near lethal to less-than-lethal.  • Demonstrated technology exists that can be applied in the development of direct fire weapons systems. • The vulnerability of a broad range of targets can be accommodated within the mission profile.
