Paper Abstract

A system has been developed for delivering and attaching a sensor payload to a target using a standard 40-mm grenade launcher. The GLIMPS projectile is intended to be a general purpose delivery system for a variety of sensor payloads including visual, acoustic, and chemical sensors. The GLIMPS projectile flight characteristics are similar to existing 40-mm rounds, with a useful range of up to 300 m. The projectile incorporates an attachment mechanism, a shock mitigation system, a power source, and a telemetry system for transmission of sensor data at up to 1/4 mile range. A second design is also being considered. It is a small taggant projectile that uses an adhesive to attach a tracking transmitter or other small payload to a vehicle at up to 50 m range. While initially developed as a military system, both projectiles can be used to enhance law enforcement operations.
