Abstract:

The investigation covers the effects found of the space environments of ozone, solar radiation, nuclear radiation, acceleration, temperature, and altitude. Apparent physical damage and the effects on ballistic firing performance are analyzed. Changes in chemical composition, internal pressures and other operational criteria are also evaluated. The paper discusses the resulting failures caused by these environmental factors of space. The results show that the effects of ozone and solar radiation were the most critical. Author
