Abstract : Broadly, the present invention embodies a unique system for aerial dispersion of a plurality of interspaced clouds or cloud-like patterns of particulate matter at aerial locations relatively remote from the launch site of the system. As such, the system permits aerial dispersion of substances over a relatively extended aerial path disposed above ground locations safely distant from the launch location. As such, widely varied military and domestic uses and applications of the system are envisioned which, among others, include aerial dispersion of decoy material for protection of aircraft against electronic and radar tracking devices; agricultural fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and the like; fire prevention and fire fighting substances especially suitable for large range, brush and forest fires, as well as, for example, cloud-seeding substances for rain propagation purpose and the like.
