General description

Hot Drop System

 

The Hot Drop system is a stand-off method of melting a hole in an article of ordnance and burning the HE contents. The system consists of a crucible containing a charge of TD-A thermite, the crucible has a hole in the bottom covered in aluminium tape. When the TD-A is initiated using the TIS, the reaction progresses down through mixture resulting in a pool of molten iron. When the molten iron reaches the bottom, it melts the aluminium foil releasing the molten iron, this falls in a stream down to the munition. The force and temperature of the falling iron makes a hole in the munition which then causes the HE filling to burn. Variable TD-A charge to suit task. The crucible is normally reusable, 4 to 5 times.
