Abstract:

The patent relates to a spool for wire deployment from a high speed rocket, having a cylindrically-shaped body upon which is wound a wire. The body is made of a pair of sections separated by a first braking ring. A second braking ring is adjustably mounted on the body adjacent the first braking ring. In operation the wire passes through the braking rings and at a preselected time during the unwinding of the wire from the spool, the braking rings apply a braking force thereto thereby preventing any damage to the wire during the unwinding procedure.
