Abstract : A feasibility study was conducted on a device to pierce a metal case of ordnance and provide means for extracting a sample of its contents. Basically, the mechanism used to penetrate the metal case wall with a stud needle was a stud-driver gun development by Frankford Arsenal primarily for anchoring studs into concrete block. This report discusses and illustrates the developed steps necessary to adapt the stud driver for use as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal device. A method is presented for sealing the aperture in the bomb which results from needle penetration, and a concept is presented for extracting the filler media. (Author)
