Odyssey: IFOs, Identified Flying Objects

The Edgewood Arsenal Aerodynamics Group at Aberdeen Proving Ground has studied the flight behavior of many unconventional shapes in projects for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Laboratories, Secret Service, and others. These lectures will describe several of the more unusual of these projects, including air-delivered IGLOO WHITE intrusion sensors for McNamara's Wall in Vietnam; the Ring Airfoil Grenade (RAG); the Sting/Soft RAG non-lethal system; the Annular Nose-Solid Base (ANSB) anti-hostage bullet; and others. The profusely illustrated presentations will include slides, videos, and examples of hardware.
