AbstractThis disclosure relates to countermeasure systems, particularly to systems for providing a protective cover against homing and/or fire control devices operating upon infrared, sonar, or microwave reflected energy or for confusing search and tracking devices, and more particularly to decoy rounds and their method of fabrication. The decoy rounds include at least one load of energy generating material, means for propelling the load, a burst charge for shattering the load, the burst charge being constructed so as to cause a line type explosion, and means for igniting the burst charge. The decoy rounds are fabricated by a process which includes a novel method of producing the line type explosion and includes a novel assembly operation which allows the round to be exploded in such a way that birdnesting of the decoy material is minimized.
