Abstract : Presented in this document are the test results of Nuclear Radiation Effects Tests No. 18 which was a dynamic credibility demonstration conducted in the Air Force Ground Test Reactor during the time period of 29 July through 5 August 1964. This work was performed in support of Air Force Contract AF33(657)- 12517. Planning and execution of the irradiation provided specific test data on subsystems, components, and materials representative of those which would be used in a nuclear powered ramjet missile. The test articles evaluated were the product of an extensive development program to provide nuclear radiation tolerant subsystems which would meet the LASV-N performance characteristics. The test articles representing the major subsystem areas(digital computer simulator, A to D shaft position encoder, magnetic core controlled multiplexer, two axis inertial platform subsystem, rate gyros and accelerometers, and electromechanical filter system) were dynamically irradiated during a total exposure of 187 Mw-hrs.
