Abstract:

Testing to quantify the performance of a soft recovery system was conducted at the U.S. Army Research Laboratorys Transonic Experimental Facility. An on-board recorder OBR was inserted into 10 of the 14 rounds fired. Recovery of the OBR equated to recovering the projectile. This necessitated a soft recovery system for the 120-mm projectile. This report details the hardware and methodology used to create a soft recovery and notes about the results of testing.
