Abstract:

The Fluidic Armament Turret System FATS is a two-axis hydrofluidic- electronic hybrid inertial damping system for the XM28 turret. The program includes analysis, hardware design, fabrication, and testing. Turret performance is finally compared with and without the turret damper during firing tests from an AH-1G Helicopter, at the Honeywell Proving Grounds.
