Title: Variable stiffness flyer plate for penetration device

Abstract

A penetration device including a casing, a propellant positioned in the casing, and a flyer plate. The flyer plate is coupled to the casing and adjacent to the propellant. The flyer plate includes a center portion having a substantially constant first thickness and includes a peripheral portion around the center portion and defining an edge. The peripheral portion includes one or more recesses in a first surface of the peripheral portion.
