Abstract:

In this investigation, the vehicle selected as requiring the greatest state-of-the-art advance in pneumatic power system mechanization is an air-breathing, high-speed, low-altitude missile powered by a nuclear ram-jet engine. On this vlants, Solid rocket propellants, Nuclear propulsion, Ramjet test vehicles, Aircraft. Airborne, neumatic systems, Aerodynamics, Control, Landing gear, Wings, Duct inlets, Release mechanisms, Whicle, the work functions which can be expected to be accomplished pneumatically are a aerodynamic control b landing gear release c wing translation d wing jettison e stores ejection f inlet duct control and g reactor control. These systems are treated in detail in the system analysis. Author
