Abstract:

The program consisted of the design and installation of an Experimental Waterjet Propulsion Kit on a Government-owned M-113 Vehicle, Serial No. F13127, USA12CK01. Two Aerojet-General Type A Waterjet pumps were equipped with special inlets, discharge nozzles, and maneuvering gates designed to provide optimum propulsion of the vehicle. The waterjets were driven from the vehicle transfer case by use of a special power transmission system. The complete water propulsion system which is suitable for field retrofit on existing vehicles, was installed and tested prior to delivery.
