Directed-effect munition

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #5341743.

A directed-effect submunition moves in a substantially vertical direction V with a displacement velocity v parallel to V and a rotation velocity r about an axis parallel to V. The submunition includes a shaped charge with axis D forming an acute angle t with axis V and a detection device with axis d forming an angle u with axis D, a target detecting device, and a triggering device. The submunition also includes a displacement velocity v determining device, and a calculation device for calculating as a function of v a value u.sub.i for angle u that minimizes deviation (e) between the position (M) of a target detected, and impact point (M') of the penetrator of the shaped charge if the latter were triggered upon detection, as well as a device for imparting the value u.sub.i to angle u.
