The objective of this program is to develop fluidic torquer technology for missile guidance and control seeker type gyros. This report presents the technology in the development of a proportionaldigital fluidic torquer and the associated electrofluid converter. The conceptual design feasibility and hardware performance characteristics are confirmed by the evaluation material. The cost-effectiveness of the torquer design is established by the use of off-the-shelf items and design simplicity. High-g survival and reliability requirements of the converter are verified by a 10,000-g cannon launch test environment. The study of the concept indicates that implementation of fluidic gyro torquing is feasible.
