General Dynamics announced today that it has signed an agreement with Advanced Material Engineering (AME) to manufacture 40mm Air Burst Ammunition for the US military.
AME is a subsidiary of Singapore Technologies Kinetics Ltd (ST Kinetics).
The 40mm airburst uses a programmable, time-based fuse technology that computes and programs the detonation time into the fuze. Once fired, the fuze counts down to zero detonating at the intended target point.
It is highly effective against concealed and defilade targets. The 40mm ammunition can be fired from existing U.S. Army grenade launchers such as the Mk19 and MK47. This ammunition will provide the warfighter with the capability to program ammunition to detonate at a specific distance, greatly increasing the effectiveness, flexibility and lethality of their weapon systems.
