Abstract:

This report describes the results of a design and development program conducted by AiResearch Manufacturing Company which was intended to demonstrate the feasibility of a fluidic gun stabilization system for the elevation axis. The system utilizes an angular accelerometer with pneumatic pickoff, a pneumaticfluidic dynamic compensation and amplification circuit, and a pneumatichydraulic pressure control servovalve driving the hydraulic gun actuator. The servovalve, handle valve, actuator, turret test fixture, and vehicle data used in design of the system were related to the MIC-V tank and were provided by Rock Island Arsenal. The tasks accomplished during the program included the following development of system analytical models design and fabrication of a breadboard accelerometer- controller unit testing of controller components and demonstration of closed loop system performance for the elevation axis while installed in a full-scale turret test fixture.
