Abstract : This Technical Memorandum describes the results of static and dynamic strain surveys carried out on a LAU-7/A launcher (serial number NMH-230) as removed from a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F/A-18 aircraft. The launcher was tested with the original snubbing system and with an alternative aft hanger snubbing system developed by Hawker de Havilland Australia. The strain results from the two snubbing systems are compared.
