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
-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
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
