SDE is conducting a programme of activities for UK MOD to characterise the performance of Shaped Charge (SC) Jet warheads at extended range and conduct a number of experimental trials against live high explosive shells to evaluate the real time responses from the extended SC jet ranges.

As prime contractors, the programme draws on SDE’s significant project management expertise and brings together skills from both the Trials and Design, Modelling and Simulation capability areas.

Phases 1 and 2 have already been successfully completed, with overall programme completion scheduled for March 2013.
