Due to the nature of the work, we can only release material designated Distribution A information. Under multiple contracts, we have demonstrated medium caliber venting technologies that can be integrated into DoD medium caliber ammunition. Our work includes:

  • Modeling to include extensive aeronautical airflows
  • Design Packages including bills of material, 2D drawings, and specifications
  • Fabrication of Test Equipment
  • Support of Testing Trials

Here are links to a briefing and a paper from the most recent NDIA IM Conference held in Nashville, TN in 2016.

From 2012 to 2016, we completed 6.2 development and testing of parallel eutectic and memory metal cartridge case venting solutions.

Insensitive Munitions (IM) Venting Technology for High Pressure Projectiles

Date: January 2012
Status: Completed
Description: Contract from U.S. Army Joint Munitions & Lethality Life Cycle Management Command (www.jmc.army.mil) under DOTC (DoD Ordnance Technology Consortium – www.nac-dotc.org) to CLogic Defense LLC. Nostromo LLC was a subcontractor of CLogic Defense LLC. Nostromo demonstrated functionality of the concept described in Nostromo’s US Patent 8,925,463. The project consisted on design a venting solution for cartridge case of medium caliber ammunition using the concept described in Patent 2. The design was validated by means of simulations and testing.

IM Cartridge Case Venting

Med Cal IM Warhead Venting

Date: November 2016
Status: Completed
Description: Contract from U.S. Army Joint Munitions & Lethality Life Cycle Management Command (www.jmc.army.mil) under DOTC (DoD Ordnance Technology Consortium – www.nac-dotc.org) to CLogic Defense LLC (www.clogicdefense.com). Nostromo demonstrated a unique venting solution usable in medium caliber ammunition. The design was validated by means of both simulations and testing.
