A launching structure comprises a ram driven by a piston in a cylinder. A pyrotechnic charge initiates a gas expansion underneath the piston and the expanding gases drive the ram. The ram has a helical groove engaged by a cam pin in the cylinder wall to impart a rotary motion to the ram as it is displaced linearly in the cylinder. A mass is engaged by the ram and is ejected from the cylinder with both a linear and rotational velocity. Keywords Patents. jhd
