Abstract
Not Available The use of sled vehicles to perform high speed/high acceleration testing of warheads and warhead components generates an inherently Noisy vibration environment. The anticipated level of shocks and the vibration energy levels associated with sled tracks will normally exceed the environment of a missile in free flight. This elevated shock and vibration environment inhibits the accurate testing of actual hardware and necessitates either hardening the hardware to the sled track vibration levels or designing new hardware for testing only. Physitron proposes a solution to this problem with a low cost, technically innovative approach which is based on a unique understanding of the problem, an ability to treat the entire track, sled, and payload as a connected system and the capability to turn the analytical solution into hardware which will solve this problem of reducing the shock and vibration levels in dynamic warhead testing to acceptable, near actual flight levels. Each of the contributing parts will be designed to produce a system which meets the SBIR objectives. The design and fabrication process, the track, the track status, the maintenance of track status, the track-sled interface, quality control of the interface, the structure of the sled, and the payload isolation system will all be optimized to achieve the required cost/benefit results. BENEFITS: The primary benefit will be allowing testing of actual hardware without special modifications for sled track vibrati
