Abstract:

The reliability of todays highly sophisticated weapons systems is dependent on simulation tests. These power-on, all-up tests are required prior to delivery to the fleet and periodically during the life of the missile. The tests must be conducted in hardened missile test cells MTCs to prevent communication of an accidental explosion to ordnance outside the cell and to limit leakage pressure in adjacent occupied areas to less than 2.3 psi.
