Abstract (en)

A projectile comprises an inner inert pressure transfer medium (4), a sleeve (2A), a pressure generating unit (5) which borders onto or is located in the inert medium, and an activating unit (7). The pressure generating unit has one or more elements (6). The mass of the pressure generating unit is low in relation to that of the pressure transfer medium.

Abstract (de)

Die Erfindung betrifft einen auch inert hochwirksamen aktiven Penetrator, ein aktives Geschoss, einen aktiven Flugkörper oder ein aktives Mehrzweckgeschoss mit einem konstruktiv einstellbaren Verhältnis zwischen Durchschlagsleistung und lateraler Wirkung. Die endballistische Gesamtwirkung aus Eindringtiefe und Flächenbelegung/Flächenbelastung wird im aktiven Fall mittels einer unabhängig von der Position des Wirkkörpers (1) aktivierbaren Einrichtung ausgelöst. Erreicht wird die laterale Wirksamkeit mittels eines geeigneten inerten Übertragungsmediums (4), in dem über eine druckerzeugende Einrichtung (5) ein quasi-hydrostatisches bzw. hydrodynamisches Druckfeld aufgebaut und auf die umgebende, Splitter bildende oder Subgeschosse abgebende Wirkkörperhülle (2) übertragen wird. Die aufgrund ihrer Werkstoffeigenschaften, Masse und Geschwindigkeit endballistisch wirksame Wirkkörperhülle (2A, 2B) bildet die zentrale KE-Komponente. Diese entweder ganz oder teilweise geschlossene Hülle umhüllt einen inneren Teil, welcher in dem Bereich einer gewünschten aktiven Lateralwirkung mit einem Übertragungsmedium (4) gefüllt ist, das den mittels einer ansteuerbaren, pyrotechnischen Einheit (5) erzeugten Druck auf die Wirkkörperhülle überträgt und damit eine Zerlegung in Splitter/Subgeschosse mit einer lateralen Bewegungskomponenten bewirkt. Die aktive pyrotechnische Einheit (5) kann aus einem einzigen, im Verhältnis zur Größe des Wirkkörpers kleinen, elektrisch zündbaren Detonator (6) bestehen, der mit einem einfachen Berührungsmelder, mit einem Zeitglied, einem programmierbaren Modul, einem Empfangsteil und einer Sicherungskomponente als aktivierbare Auslösevorrichtung (7) verbunden ist. Diese aktivierbare Auslösevorrichtung kann im Spitzenbereich und/oder Heckbereich des Penetrators angeordnet und mittels einer Leitung (8) verbunden sein. <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
