Dispersion Control System for Sounding Rockets
AIR FORCE GEOPHYSICS LAB HANSCOM AFB MA
Pagination or Media Count:
High altitude sounding rockets have always presented a problem to small test ranges such as WSMR because of rocket dispersion. This report presents a strap-on dispersion control system employing a 16-bit microprocessor as its brains that requires only software changes to accommodate different sounding rocket vehicles. Mostly the report contains a detailed explanation of the electronic hardware used, and the software developed, for a Paiute-Tomahawk sounding rocket.
