Measurement of Sabot Discard and Analysis of Associated Launch Disturbances
ARMY BALLISTIC RESEARCH LAB ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND MD
Pagination or Media Count:
The sabot discard process from a slowly rolling, fin stabilized projectile is examined from the time of shot ejection until the round enters interference-free flight. Launch disturbances relating to muzzle blast, fin, shadowing, mechanical contact, and aerodynamic interference are examined both from the experimental data and analytically.
