Abstract:

Each of the four containers used for the GBU-15 TV guided bomb system were subjected to vibration and superimposed load tests to simulate conditions experienced during transport and storage respectively. In addition, the dynamic performance of the containers was evaluated using one or more mechanical or rough handling tests, including free-fall drop, edgewise rotational drop, and pendulum impact. The containers were checked for pressure retention before and after completion of the tests. All tests were conducted in conformance with Federal Test Method Standard 101B. Subsequent functional tests conducted on each GBU-15 item indicated they were fully operational. Evaluation of the M548 ammunition can for the AIM 9J-1 canards was limited to vibration and free-fall drop tests. The canards were undamaged after test. Author
