Abstract : This program is undertaking the complex effort of first proving the feasibility of advanced solid lubricated rolling element bearings for urgently needed extreme environment military applications, and then developing the necessary technology for the design, construction and testing of such bearings for use in the actual weapon systems. The key weapon system considered is the cruise missile and the specific bearing types slated for research and development are the cruise missile gyro (Type I) and turbine engine (Type II) bearings.
