TALOS STRUCTURAL FIRING TEST ABOARD THE USS ALBANY (CG-10),
NAVAL WEAPONS LAB DAHLGREN VA
Pagination or Media Count:
Twelve TALOS MARK 11 MOD 1 boosters with concrete slugs were fired aboard the USS ALBANY CG-10 to investigate the adequacy of the protection for the TALOS launching system personnel against blast effects and to determine the effects of the booster exhaust on the ships structure. During the test series, measurements of toxic gas leakage into personnel areas, sound pressure levels, structural strains and deflections, temperatures and exhaust stream pressures were obtained. The results indicated no major structural deficiencies. There was some gas and smoke leakage into personnel areas adjacent to the launcher, exposure of equipment to high temperatures and superficial structural damage. Author
