The impact of launcher turret vibrations control on the rocket launch

Open access


The paper discusses the missile lift-off from a launcher placed on a motor vehicle. The stimulation of the assembly vibration results from the input generated by the road and the missile firing. The unfavourable input generated in the course of assembly operation has an impact on the characteristics of the initial missile flight parameters. The aim of the paper is to apply the hybrid vibroisolation system of the launcher turret in order to improve the conditions of the missile launch from the assembly. The active system reducing the occurring disturbance allows to control the launcher turret vibrations. Owing to that it is possible influence effectively the initial missile flight parameters.
