Title: Small Arms Gun Barrel Stabilization Using High Energy Density, Rugged, and Low Creep Actuators
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W15QKN-04-C-1048
Award Amount: $120,000.00
 

Abstract:

Reducing or eliminating shooter induced disturbances, especially in combat situations, can have a substantial impact on the accuracy of fire, especially in combat situations. Under this effort, an INertially STAbilized Rifle (INSTAR) system prototype employing active stabilization will be developed and tested. A major focus of this effort is the development of novel low creep, highly rugged, precision actuators. Of relevance to this work will be issues relating to actuator displacement, force, bandwidth, packaging, mass, powering, and control. The research team will use its considerable expertise, which is based on previous INSTAR development and other smart structures work, to address these issues.
