Title: Low Drag 2.75 Inch Rocket and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) Launchers
Agency: DOD
Contract: N68936-11-C-0038
Award Amount: $79,272.00
 

Abstract:

The proposal describes a solution to the challenge presented in SBIR Topic N111-018 for a Low Drag 2.75 Inch Rocket and Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) Launchers. The Phase I approach is to develop and validate through prototype engineering, a Low Drag 2.75"Launcher. PiAC will hypothesize different approaches to respond to the topic requirement, namely our concept 60X4006 Low Weight Low Drag, (LWLD) 4-shot, and 60X4008 Low Weight Low Drag (LWLD) 19-shot launchers. PiAC will develop a trade study matrix effort on differing drag reduction approaches. Decision metrics will be developed and applied to arrive at an appropriate down-select from the trade study concepts. The final solution will be compatible with the LAU-61/68 systems for complete mechanical interoperability. The resulting Phase I effort will feed a Wind Tunnel test to validate the Weight and Drag Savings. Additionally, the ability of the launcher to be fabricated will be studied under Phase I. The best solution from the trade studies will be the basis for the follow on Phase II research.
