РЕФЕРАТ (Abstract)

A surrogate RPG includes a warhead with an outer conductive portion and an inner conductive portion spaced from the outer conductive portion. A sabot includes an electrical circuit configured to monitor conductivity between the inner and outer conductive portions. The surrogate RPG can be used to test the effectiveness of various RPG defeat technologies.

ФОРМУЛА ИЗОБРЕТЕНИЯ (CLAIMS)

What is claimed is:

1. A surrogate RPG for testing the effectiveness of an RPG defeat technology comprising: a warhead including: an outer conductive portion, and an inner conductive portion spaced from the outer conductive portion; and a sabot including an electrical circuit configured to: monitor conductivity between the inner and outer conductive portions; and indicate a defeat of said RPG and the effectiveness of said RPG defeat technology.

2. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 in which the electrical circuit includes a power source electrically connected to the outer and inner conductive portions via an indicator.

3. The surrogate RPG of claim 2 in which the indicator includes at least one lamp.

4. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 in which the outer conductive portion is cone shaped and the inner conductive portion is cone shaped.

5. The surrogate RPG of claim 4 in which the outer cone shaped conductive portion includes markings dividing the outer conductive cone shaped portion into sections.

6. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 further including an insulative spacer between the outer conductive portion and the inner conductive portion.

7. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 further including a support structure for the outer conductive portion.

8. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 further including a support structure for the inner conductive portion.

9. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 further including a dummy fuse attached to the outer conductive portion.

10. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 further including a base section coupled to the outer conductive portion.

11. The surrogate RPG of claim 1 in which the RPG defeat technology includes a shield.

12. A surrogate RPG comprising: a warhead including: an outer conductive portion, and an inner conductive portion spaced from the outer conductive portion; and an electrical circuit configured to monitor conductivity between the inner and outer conductive portions without igniting said RPG.

13. The surrogate RPG of claim 12 further including a sabot housing the electrical circuit.

14. A surrogate RPG comprising: a warhead including: a replaceable outer conductive portion, and a replaceable inner conductive portion; a reusable sabot attached to the warhead; and an electrical circuit configured to monitor conductivity between the inner and outer conductive portions, the electrical circuit including a power source electrically connected to the outer and inner conductive portions via an indicator.

15. The surrogate RPG of claim 14 in which the RPG defeat technology includes a shield.

16. A method of making a surrogate RPG, the method comprising: fabricating an outer conductive warhead portion; fabricating an inner conductive warhead portion; placing the inner conductive warhead portion inside the outer conductive warhead portion in a spaced relationship with respect to the outer conductive warhead portion; and installing an electrical circuit configured to monitor conductivity between the inner and outer conductive portions including electrically connecting a power source to the outer and inner conductive portions via an indicator including at least one lamp.

17. A method of evaluating the effectiveness of an RPG shield, the method comprising: firing a surrogate RPG at an RPG shield, the surrogate RPG including an outer conductive portion spaced from an inner conductive portion and an electrical circuit; configuring the electrical circuit to monitor conductivity between the inner and outer conductive portions to indicate whether or not the RPG was defeated; imaging the firing of a surrogate RPG as it strikes the RPG shield; and reviewing the resultant images to determine if conductivity between the inner and outer conductive portions changed during the firing.
