Some notes on the probable damage to an intercontinental-ballistic-missile warhead following puncture of the heat shield
Description: Report discussing a study of the effects of puncturing the heat shield of an intercontinental-ballistic-missile warhead by small projectiles. Calculations were created for both rod and sphere projectiles and experimental testing was performed on a missile model with holes drilled in the heat shield. The possibility that a projectile could have enough energy to cause mechanical damage to the interior of the warhead is also presented.
