Polymer flash corridor ammunition

Enables propellant to burn in both directions

Military Technology

The Naval Surface Warface Center’s Crane Division has invented a polymer insert that internally retrofits ammunition with a flash corridor, allowing the primer’s spark to move into the center of the cartridge before igniting the propellant.

The invention creates a non-traditional burn pattern with advantageous effects.

The patent-pending technology is available via license agreement to companies that would make, use, or sell it commercially.
