Abstract:

Research was undertaken to develop preliminary designs of superhard launch facility closures near the limit of survivability and to develop closure operating mechanisms and methods of handling debris. Part I of the document presents a review of known closure and debris handling methods and several concepts for further development. Part II of the document presents a further definition of weapons effects applicable in the range of interest and presents preliminary designs of closure systems which will survive the postulated environment.
