1 Slide 1 Millennium Gun Slide1 Millennium Gun Scaleable Lethality Weapons Requirements for Military & Naval Forces

2 Slide 2 Millennium Gun OVERVIEW The Situation The Requirement Terms of Reference Technology - Guns - Ammo Target Vulnerability Tactical Application

3 Slide 3 Millennium Gun The Situation The Fluid Battle Environment Organized Military Opposition Unconventional & Asymmetric Warfare Civil Unrest Non Combatant Screens Dynamic Rules of Engagement Currently Limited Response Options Water Cannons Sponge Balls & “Rubber” Bullets Flash Bang Loudspeakers

4 Slide 4 Millennium Gun The Requirement A Multi Purpose Weapon with Scaleable Lethality – Scalability from Lethal to Less Than Lethal and Back –Scaleable for max efficiency against various targets – Readily Deployed –Minimum Logistical Tail –Can accept various ammo types: ABM,HE,APDS

5 Slide 5 Millennium Gun NATO Policy Less Than Lethal Weapons (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 Slide 6 Millennium Gun Design Elements of a Scaleable Kinetic Energy Weapon Predictable delivery of subprojectiles requires: High Rate of Fire - Shoot-look-shoot Selectable Rof F - tailor burst size to target MV Correction - Minimize error in range Accurate Fuzing - Precision delivery at the target Uniformity of the payload - Subprojectiles same size Uniformity of payload distribution - area coverage

7 Slide 7 Millennium Gun mm Technology Suite Payload: Subprojectiles TARGET

8 Slide 8 Millennium Gun Four Chamber Revolver Cannon

9 Slide 9 Millennium Gun mm revolver cannon

10 Slide 10 Millennium Gun mm 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)

11 Slide 11 Millennium Gun mm ABM (Ahead) Subprojectile Dynamic Parameters Subprojectile Density Valid for 3.3 g Subprojectiles

12 Slide 12 Millennium Gun Single Round Subprojectile Pattern

13 Slide 13 Millennium Gun mm Air Burst Munition Various Payload Arrangements, e.g: Air Defense Version (Ahead) IFV Version Subprojectile, SP-diameter: 5.85 mm 8 19 SP (152) of 3.3 g each SP-diameter: 4.65 mm SP (341) of 1.5 g each 35 mm Caliber F BB

14 Slide 14 Millennium Gun On-line Compensation of Muzzle Velocity Variation Fixed Time ProgrammingOn-Line∆Vo - Compensation 5m20m Firing Range approx. 1600m 400% Improvement

15 Slide 15 Millennium Gun Muzzle Velocity Correction

16 Slide 16 Millennium Gun Mission Roles-Targets Mission Roles – Dissuasion (Less-Than-Lethal) – Destruction (Lethal Mission Kill/Hard Kill) Targets (Anti Material/Anti Personnel) – Armored Vehicles Combatant Vessels – Other Military Vehicles Patrol Craft & Support Vessels – MOUTS Inflatables To Speed Boats – Troops in bunkers Drones To Missiles – Troops in openHelicopters & Aircraft – Civilian Shields

18 Slide 18 Millennium Gun Lethality Ahead Un-Fuzed Mode 55mm Armor Plate

19 Slide 19 Millennium Gun F Mission Kill Demonstration with the 35mm Ahead against MBT (Swiss P-68 Upgraded) F BB Details Total: 2 Shots

20 Slide 20 Millennium Gun Ahead ABM Ground to Ground Capability 9- 2 mm Steel Target 1 m 2 : 0.5 m wide Firing Direction Target Area: 10 (width) x 30 (depth) m The target area is 27 m higher than the gun muzzle! Firing Range: ~ 1 km Simulated Range: ~ 1.2 km Ammo: 4 Rounds (Single Shots) # of Plate Perforations = Subprojectiles = 540 SP Total: 107 Plate Perforations (~ 20%)

21 Slide 21 Millennium Gun Helicopter Target (UH-1, Static) - 2 Shots - Range: 1500 m Entry Side Ref.: APG/Oct. 98 F BB

22 Slide 22 Millennium Gun Patrol Boat Deckhouse 10mm Aluminum 8 rounds at 1600M

23 Slide 23 Millennium Gun mm Ahead Payload Ejection at 2 km Range: Performance Case: 3.3 g Subprojectiles

24 Slide 24 Millennium Gun Naval Tactical Scenario Policing and Self Defense OWN SHIP INTRUDER Payload first round Non-Lethal warning shot. Payload 150m 3 rounds non-lethal on target. Payload m 6 rds lethal on target

25 Slide 25 Millennium Gun Ground Tactical Scenarios Point Target (incl. ATGW-Bunker, Prone & Covered Troops, MBT, Helicopter): Area Target (Diffused Targets): Linear Target (e.g. road with vehicles): Pre-Determined Air Space (e.g. swarm of helicopters): F FF Gun Road

26 Slide 26 Millennium Gun Air Burst Coverage Effectiveness 35mm Ahead with 3.3g Subprojectiles

27 Slide 27 Millennium Gun 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 F BD

28 Slide 28 Millennium Gun 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. Scaleable lethality is a force multiplier
