Vibration testing, simulating ground vehicle transportation was performed on the Excalibur and resulted in unexpected responses of the projectile. Modeling and simulation was used to replicate the vibration test and determine the merits of different mounting configurations to secure the round. The mounting configurations were compared based on levels of projectile rotation and torque.
