Abstract:

ATA HAS DEVELOPED SEVERAL ANGULAR SENSORS BASED ON THE MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC (MHD) PRINCIPLE AND CURRENTLY HOLDS A PATENT ON THE BASIC DESIGN. THE NAVY REQUIRES A PROJECTILE SPIN SENSOR WHICH CAN MEASURE THE PEAK ANGULAR VELOCITY AND INDIRECTLY, THE PROJECTILE MUZZLE VELOCITY. THIS INFORMATION CAN THEN BE USED TO SET CONTROLLED VARIABLE TIME (CVT) FUSES FOR PRECISE PROXIMITY DETONATION. AN MBD ANGULAR SPIN SENSOR, OR MASS, WILL BE DESIGNED TO MEASURE PEAK ANGULAR VELOCITIES OF 60 TO 450 REVOLUTIONS/SEC WITH AN ACCURACY OF +/-1%. THE MASS MUST NOT EXCEED THE VOLUME OF A TO-8 TRANSISTOR CAN AND MUST ALSO BE CAPABLE OF WITHSTANDING AXIAL FORCES OF 75,000G; AND CROSS AXIAL FORCES OF 20,000G.
