A high energy, e.g., ultraviolet (UV) catalyzed decomposing foam encapsulating kinetic media forms a payload to be boosted in space and provides an ultra-light weight means for intercepting an incoming missile or other target. The decomposed foam releases the kinetic media (at designed rates so as to preserve a required density of media on target) to intercept a target and destroy it. The use of the decomposing foam significantly lowers the weight and cost and improves the probability of success of destroying the target.
What is claimed is: 1. Kinetic media payload for launching into space by a vehicle to intercept a target, said kinetic media payload comprising kinetic media at least partially surrounded by a foam decomposable into post-reactive by-products comprising alcohols, carbon dioxide, and water by high energy electromagnetic radiation that has a wavelength of less than about 10 -7 meters, said foam including a free radical initiator. 2. The kinetic media payload of claim 1 wherein said high energy electromagnetic radiation is ultraviolet radiation. 3. The ...
