Research Institution
The focus of the Phase II project will be on design, fabrication, and testing of an adaptive vertical support group AVSG with an active shock and vibration control system (ASVCS) that can mitigate shock and vibrations and increase mission capability for and to support variable payload systems. The Phase II effort will be conducted on the AVSG mount, test fixture development, design and development of test elements, and testing. For Phase II Option I, the AVSG assembly will be designed, developed and tested with ASVCS to evaluate its performance. For Phase II Option II, the integration capability of the system with underwater launch platform interfaces will be studied through the engineering analysis.
