Abstract:

The program conducted for the U. S. Army Missile Command from April 15 through Jul 15, 1974, investigated alternative manufacturing methods for producing the 70-mm LAWT warhead body. The objective was to determine the technical feasibilities, production potentials, and unit costs involved for each method when based on a production quota of 40,000 units per month to produce the warhead body from the aluminum alloy 7075 heat treated to the T6 condition yield stress range 30,000 to 85,000 psi. This report presents the findings of this study.
