Abstract:

A combination sabot and launch seal is taught that is made from a single piece of molded flexible material mounted to the interior of a launch capsule. The sabot portion of the invention is defined by multiple flexible appendages that are joined together at one end in a domed shape and positioned over the nose of a missile in a launch capsule. During a launch, the appendages separate and fold back over the lip of the forward aperture of the launch capsule.
