Metal Storm Technology

Metal Storm technology is an electronically initiated, stacked projectile system that removes the mechanisms required to fire a conventional weapon. Effectively, the only parts that move in Metal Storm’s technology are the projectiles contained within the barrels. Multiple projectiles are stacked in a barrel. The technology allows each projectile to be fired sequentially from the barrel.

Metal Storm’s fully loaded barrel tubes are essentially serviceable weapons, without the traditional ammunition feed or ejection system, breech opening or any other moving parts. Metal Storm barrels can be effectively grouped in multiple configurations to meet a diversity of applications.

Metal Storm technology is ideally suited to the new generation of ‘network centric’ weapons that are designed to connect with today’s battlefield. Importantly, Metal Storm enabled systems are capable of local or remote operation through a computerized fire control system.

Our technology achieves its performance through the concept of numerous projectiles stacked in a barrel, in which each projectile has its own propellant load, such that the leading propellant can be reliably ignited to fire the projectile, without the resulting high pressure and temperature causing unplanned blow-by ignition of the following propellant load, and without collapse of the projectile column in the barrel.

Our technology has the following features and benefits:
  • electronically programmable rates of fire from single shots to ultra-rapid rates;
  • no moving parts, resulting in increased reliability and availability because there is less maintenance required and decreased possibility of malfunction;
  • increased firepower to weight ratio resulting in a lighter weapon with greater firepower compared to conventional weapons;
  • modular pods that could operate as a complete weapon system in one container;
  • 100% electronic operation;
  • the potential of grouping of multiple calibers and multiple lethalities in one gun allowing the user to vary the use to a specific situation;
  • numerous hybrid configurations and Special Forces applications that could result in enhanced capabilities for use behind enemy lines; and
  • fast second round strike capability before recoil effect.
