Abstract:

A captive-trajectory store separation test was conducted using 0.05- scale models of the f-4C aircraft and the redesigned LAU-61A rocket launcherfull and empty. The stores were launched from the Multiple Ejection Rack and the Triple Ejection Rack from the centerline pylon and the right-wing inboard pylon, respectively. For the redesigned LAU-61A the support lugs will be shifted forward either 6 or 3 in. Both positions were used in these tests. The tests were run at Mach numbers 0.53 to 0.94 and at the parent-aircraft angle of attack to give level flight at a simulated altitude of 5000 ft. At selected conditions some of the trajectories were obtained for both constant and time- variant ejector forces.
