Innovative Defense’s shaped charge design produces significantly larger diameter bore holes
Explosive with a lined cavity that focuses explosive energy and forms a high-speed jet when detonated
Initial invention: In 1888, Charles E. Munroe discovered that an explosive with a hollow cavity produced deep target cavities
Produces super caliber hole not possible with conventional charges
Super-Caliber Borehole diameter uniquely allows charges to be used in succession
On Feb 16 and 17, 2013, Innovative Defense conducted its first round of shaped charge testing. Ten experiments were conducted on prototype laboratory novel Swept conical shaped charges. These test proved that Innovative defense's Swept shaped charge design could produce a hollow cylindrical jet.
During the periods of December 9 – 17, 2013 and January 24-28, 2014 Innovative Defense conducted a second round of testing. Twenty eight shaped charge experiments were conducted on prototype laboratory Swept conical shaped charges, Swept Hemispherical shaped charges, Swept EFP shaped charges, and Axilinear shaped charges. These test proved that a Super Caliber Hole could be made with Innovative Defense's Swept and Axilinear Shaped Charge designs.
