Abstract:

This reported effort is directed toward the analysis, design, and fabrication of an inexpensive, disposable, lightweight, filament-wound tube suitable for use as a man-portable, shoulder-fired missile launcher. As a launch tube of this nature is generally meant to offer protection for the missile in addition to its function as a missile launcher, two completely different sets of design parameters are involved.
