General Dynamics, ST Kinetics target US military market

The 40mm airburst ammunition can be fired from existing US Army grenade launchers such as the Mk19and MK47.

The munition uses a programmable timed fuse technology that computes and programs the detonation time into the fuse. Once fired, the fuse counts down to zero detonating at the intended target point.
The partnership ensures the U.S. Army will continue to derive the highest value while remaining adequately supplied.
