Abstract:

The report describes the redesign effort on the MK 33 MOD O flare head for the 5 in. MK 16 rocket motor. The work was directed toward reduction of the characteristic failures such as nonignition, short flare duration, suspension failure, loss of flare composition during and after deployment. The reduction in failure rate was from approximately 70 to less than 10. Much of the existing MOD O hardware was utilized. Author
