Experimentation was conducted to assess the energy required to emplace Ground Stakes GP-112G and GP-113G under typical and extreme soil conditions. Results of these tests, as well as prior tests and analytical investigation, were incorporated into the design and presented in a design plan. Visualization data was prepared and delivered. Detail drawings were prepared and a stress analysis of all parts com pleted. Analysis and experimentation were conducted to evaluate various retrieve approaches. Following approval of the design plan by USAELRDL, drawings were released for the fabrication of the first of three feasibility models of the ballistic impact hammer. The breadboard model of the ballistic impact hammer, employed in preliminary tests, was successfully demonstrated.
