Abstract : An investigation is described of the Jet Perforator X442 considered for use in the arctic-tiedown kit for the Littlejohn launcher. Both blast and fragmentation data were obtained from the rounds fired in the test program. The data will be used to aid in the determination of the lethal range of fragments, debris and blast from the firing of a Jet Peforator. (Author)
