Less Than Lethal Weapons Requirements for Military Forces


OVERVIEW

  • The Situation

  • The Requirement

  • Terms of Reference

  • Technology

    • - Guns

    • - Ammo

  • Target Vulnerability

  • Tactical Application


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.


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


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.


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


Payload: Subprojectiles

35mm Technology Suite


35mm revolver cannon


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)


35 mm ABM (Ahead) Subprojectile Dynamic Parameters

Subprojectile Density Valid for 3.3 g Subprojectiles


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

35 mm ABM (Ahead): 152 subprojectiles of 3.3 g

35 mm ABM: 341 subprojectiles of 1.5 g

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

Subprojectile Penetration Capability


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


35 mm Ahead Payload Ejection at 2 km Range: Performance

Case: 3.3 g Subprojectiles


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

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


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

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.
