SADARM, Sense and Destroy Armor, is an indirect fire-and-forget submunition in full-scale development at Aerojet Electronics Systems Division under contract with the U.S. Army Armament, Research, Development and Engineering Center, Dover, New Jersey. The submunition is delivered to the target area by a 155 mm Howitzer or a MLRS carrier where it is expelled and descends in a spiral spin pattern. It uses several sensors to detect armor and fires an explosively formed penetrator to defeat it. The system must operate throughout the world, perform in adverse weather, and deal with countermeasures without alteration to its aerodynamic, sensing or delivery mechanisms. This paper presents an unclassified overview of the operation of the SADARM system, its design and capability.
