In this study we consider two configurations of bomblets. The first is a sphere with a total mass of 10 kilograms and a diameter of 20 centimeters. The second is a conical bomblet with a length of 20 centimeters, and also with a mass of about 10 kilograms. We show that heatshield requirements for both of these bomblets on intercontinental-range trajectories can easily be met using materials that were developed over 30 years ago. We assume the bomblets follow a 10,000 kilometer-range minimum… CONTINUE READING
