Cav-X™/ Supercavitation

What is it?

 

-Cav-X™ is the enabling technology behind MEA Supercavitation ammunition.

 

-Cav-X™ is only available through DSG Technology and its licensed partners

-Cav-X™ is scalable to any size or caliber, and is even applicable for rockets, missiles and fast going underwater objects

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supercavitation:

 

-When a object (black) encounters a liquid (blue) at high speed (>100 m/s) the fluid pressure behind the object is lowered below the vapour pressure of the liquid, forming a bubble of vapour (a cavity) that encompasses the object.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

-Water resistance in the cavity acts solely on the leading edge.

 

-Stabilization is achieved through contact with the cavity by rear

of the cavitating core.

 

-The cavity collapses when velocity of the cavitating core

reduces to approx 100 m/s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enhanced Effects of the ‘super’ Cavity:

 

Near misses are still effective.

- Destructive effect of collapsing cavity even with 200mm near

misses

 

Cavity persists in water (more than 30meters for 30mm).

- Increases chances of affecting target

 

Hydro-static shock extends damage-radius.

- More than 1 meter radius in surrounding water volume
