STUDY OF THE GUN-BOOSTED ROCKET SYSTEM
NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIV RALEIGH
Pagination or Media Count:
Theoretical, computational, and experimental studies were continued of rocket motion within the launcher, during tipoff, and during the burning period for conventional artillery rockets and for gun-booster artillery rockets, both spinstabilized and fin-stabilized. The factors contributing to rocket inaccuracy are described. Investigation of sources of dispersion of both fin-stabilized and spin-stabilized rockets, evaluation of the relative effects of these disturbing factors, and development of criteria for minimizing these effects in the designing and developing of new gun-boosted rocket launcher systems will continue.
