Abstract : The development program described in this final report was established by a Department of the Army, Small Development Requirement, to provide an interim, tactical, multipoint source, CS Munition for employment from Army aircraft, both fixed and rotary wing. The munition would provide area coverage with an effective (intolerable) concentration of agent CS to reduce an unmasked enemy's operational capability. The munition would also be employed in operations in a counterinsurgency environment.
