Abstract:

Testing of the emergency ignition system for the J-48 jet engine by improvised methods indicated a need for a test cartridge development program. The Mk 243 case was used as a case for the test cartridge since small quantities were available. This case was also known to be compatible with the emergency ignition system. The Cartridge, Igniter, Turbo-Jet Engine Mk 119 Mod O For Emergency Ignition Test was developed, fully evaluated including a field test, packaged, and documented. A letter recommending release of the Mk 119 to production was forwarded in April 1966. Author
