Abstract:

This final report describes the development of the parachute-type Torpedo Stabilizer Mark 31 Mod O currently used as a Torpedo Mark 46 helicopter launching accessory. The stabilizer incorporates a novel release mechanism which has proven to be a highly reliable principle of operation. Calculated and experimental data is presented to validate the design concept and to provide a basis for an improved model development program. Recommendations are made for its use with Torpedoes Mark 44 and 46 Mod 1 at extended launching conditions. Author
