Studies and laboratory test are made of a flexible linear shaped charge FLSC system for space vehicle stage separation is presented. Three separation tests are described, including prelim inary results of these tests. The success of the tests demonstrate that the separation system design is functionally acceptable. The magnitude of the measured shock response decreased with distance from the separation plane. Minimum correlation was obtained from gross impulse calculations, as expected. X-ray photography of the shaped charge proved useful. Author
