RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems – Canada (GD-OTS– Canada) has the capability to model fragmentation, lethality and warhead mechanisms using a variety of software.
Fragments velocities, ejection angles, number and mass distribution can be calculated using SplitX software, providing data equivalent to arena tests. The fragment information can then serve as inputs to vulnerability codes.
The R&D department also has a detonics lab where it can test small items.
