High-Density Reactive Material (HDRM) missiles increase the chances of a "catastrophic kill," according to US military scientists.
高密度活性物料(HDRM)導彈增加"災難性殺人”的機會,根據美國軍方的科學家。

The US Office of Naval Research has successfully tested a new type of high density substance for use in missiles with the ability to drastically increase their impact.
美海軍研究辦公室已成功測試一種用於導彈的新型高密度物質,有能力大幅度增加它們的影響。


The new type of explosive material tested on Friday mixes metals and polymers -- oxidizers -- to create a chemical explosion on impact, is as strong as aluminum and is as dense as steel, but is "less likely to kill innocent bystanders," the state-run BBC quoted US Navy scientists as saying.
新類型的爆炸物料在週五測試,混合了數種金屬和聚合物 - 氧化劑 - 以在撞擊時創造​​一化學爆炸,是強如鋁及密如鐵,但卻是“較少可能殺死無辜的旁觀者”,國營的英國廣播公司援引美國海軍科學家所說的。
High-Density Reactive Materials (HDRM) combine and explode only when the projectile hits the target, and are very durable, significantly enhancing the explosive effect, which increases the chances of a "catastrophic kill," according to the military scientists.
高密度活性材料(HDRM)混合並發生爆炸,只在當砲彈命中目標時,而且非常耐用,大大提高爆炸性的效果,從而增加機會來一次“災難性的殺人”,按照軍方科學家。
Clifford Bedford, a researcher involved in the development of the new material, said, "In the case of a steel missile you explosively launch it, it goes through the target and all the kinetic energy is dissipated into the target."

"With the reactive material missile, you have the same explosive launch -- however, it disintegrates within the target and liberates chemical energy, and this chemical and kinetic energy combined gives you the enhanced effect," he added.

The scientists who worked on the project say the development of the new material has been in process for more than five years.

Dr Bedford stated, "In the existing scenarios we have now, we essentially fire twice, look, and fire again because we don't have a great deal of time to hit that missile -- and that's because with the steel fragments in current warheads, you can't really tell if you've hit the target or not.

"Hopefully, with the HDRM reactive warhead, we fire once, look and can determine a catastrophic kill. We still have the option for a second fire. But it saves a great deal of cost if you can take out the target with one missile versus three."
