Abstract : Rapid aerial dispersion of thin metallic strips of chaff to confuse enemy radar is achieved by packaging the chaff in multiple resilient wheels within a tubular container. Upon aerial release of the container, the wheels separate from each other and spin off randomly, scattering chaff over a wide area without local concentrations or birdnesting within such area.
