Slide 1 Millennium Gun Less Than Lethal Weapons Requirements for Military Forces
Slide 2 Millennium Gun OVERVIEW The Situation The Requirement Terms of Reference Technology - Guns - Ammo Target Vulnerability Tactical Application
Slide 3 Millennium Gun 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.
Slide 4 Millennium Gun 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
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.
Slide 6 Millennium Gun 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
Slide 7 Millennium Gun mm Technology Suite Payload: Subprojectiles
Slide 8 Millennium Gun mm revolver cannon
Slide 9 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)
Slide 10 Millennium Gun mm ABM (Ahead) Subprojectile Dynamic Parameters Subprojectile Density Valid for 3.3 g Subprojectiles
Slide 11 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
Slide 12 Millennium Gun Payload Foot-Print 35 mm ABM (Ahead): 152 subprojectiles of 3.3 g 35 mm ABM: 341 subprojectiles of 1.5 g
Slide 13 Millennium Gun On-line Compensation of Muzzle Velocity Variation Fixed Time ProgrammingOn-Line∆Vo - Compensation 5m20m Firing Range approx. 1600m 400% Improvement
Slide 19 Millennium Gun Target Vulnerability Criteria (>90%) In a Ground-to-Ground Defense Role (Subprojectile size 3.3gr)
Slide 20 Millennium Gun mm Ahead Payload Ejection at 2 km Range: Performance Case: 3.3 g Subprojectiles
Slide 21 Millennium Gun Tactical Scenarios Using ABM 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
Slide 22 Millennium Gun Air Burst Coverage Effectiveness Eg: 35mm Ahead with 3.3g Subprojectiles
Slide 23 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
Slide 24 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.
