Abstract:

A multiaxial vibration isolator for rocket launcher mounted on Army helicopter wings has been analyzed and designed this isolator is designed to isolate vertically, in pitch, in sway from transverse translation, and in sway from roll. Air springs and hydraulic dampers are used both have variable characteristics. Air control valves are used to sense proper position and to control air flow to and from the air springs. A small air compressor is used to produce pressurized air for the air springs. Several air chambers are used in the system. The system could be characterized by the term passive isolateactive align.
