This invention involves a means for dispersing submunitions from a cluster weapons system by utilizing a foamed propellant dispersion concept. The concept provides for the forced dispersion of clustered submunitions by high pressure gases generated rapidly and directly in the interstices of the submunition cluster by the controlled detonation of a propellant mixture containing cyclotetramethylenetetranitramine in a polyurethane foam.
In a cluster weapon comprising a container and a multiplicity of submunitions positioned within said container as an unconfined cluster having interstices therebetween, the improvement which comprises having a gas generating, foamed, low density, polyurethane resin matrix positioned within and filling said interstices to form a quick acting mechanism for effecting the dispersion of said submunitions.
