Predicting Penetration of Shaped Charges & Explosively Formed Penetrators
WASP is a multi-platform software package that predicts the penetration of shaped charges and explosively formed penetrators against virtually all types of modern armor systems, including spaced plates, explosive reactive armor, and non-explosive reactive armor.
Input/output files are formatted as csv files allowing for data manipulation in MS Excel.
Accepts descriptions of jet penetrators in terms of virtual origin or point-by-point data, including output from the DESC code.
Complex armor systems may be built up from sets of armor elements, including appliqués, spaced plates, explosive and non-explosive reactive armor elements, etc.
Prepared jet descriptions and armor definitions are saved in libraries for subsequent analysis, and may be mixed and matched to compare performances.
