General Dynamics Partners with ST Kinetics on 40mm High Velocity Air Burst Ammunition

General Dynamics announced today that it has entered into a strategic agreement with Advanced Material Engineering Pte Ltd (AME), a subsidiary of Singapore Technologies Kinetics Ltd (ST Kinetics), to manufacture 40mm Air Burst Ammunition for the U.S. military.

Uniquely different from conventional ammunition, the 40mm airburst uses a programmable, time-based fuse technology that computes and programs the detonation time into the fuze. Once fired, the fuze counts down to zero detonating at the intended target point. It is highly effective against concealed and defilade targets. The 40mm ammunition can be fired from existing U.S. Army grenade launchers such as the Mk19 and MK47. This ammunition will provide the warfighter with the capability to program ammunition to detonate at a specific distance, greatly increasing the effectiveness, flexibility and lethality of their weapon systems.
