Abstract:

In this study, the operational vibration analysis and evaluation of the pedestal mounted missile system, BORA, which was developed for air defense of naval platforms, are performed. The main mission of BORA is the low level air defense of naval platforms such as frigates and fast attack boats. The gyro stabilized turret of BORA enables automatic target tracking and firing capabilities without being effected from the disturbances due to the waves and maneuvers of the ship. The location of the systems depends on many operational conditions in the platforms and is generally fixed. Therefore it is meaningless to perform operational modal analysis and obtain mode shapes, resonance frequencies, etc. of the boat itself and locate system to the suitable regions. Solving vibration problems with signal analysis that is the process of analyzing the response of a system, due to some generally unknown excitation, are carried out in this work.
