16:00 A POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE TO DES? THE UTILITY OF HIGH-VELOCITY PROJECTILES

  • The argument for DES is strong, however at a time of constrained funding high-powered projectiles provide a similar capability, at a lower cost and minimum of disruption in terms of refit
  • Should we be researching HPP in isolation, or could they be deployed in concert with DES?
  • How coil/rail gun and DES development represent an important force-multiplier in the GBAD realm
