Aerospace application of gun launched projectiles and rockets( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1968 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Project High Altitude Research Program (HARP) is directed toward the use of guns for scientific probing of the upper atmosphere. The attractive features of guns for this purpose are the basic economy of such a system and the high inherent accuracy of guns for placement at altitude as well as accuracy in ground impact. The basic liability for such an approach lies in the very high acceleration experienced by gun-launched payloads. The guns used in Project HARP vary in size from 5-inch and 7-inch extended guns on mobile mounts to transportable fixed 16-inch guns. Altitude performance varies from 20 pound, 5-inch projectiles reaching 240,000 feet to 185-pound, 16-inch projectiles reaching 590,000 feet. Single and multiple stage rockets launched from the 16-inch gun have very promising predicted performance and are under development. Scientific results to date are parimarily wind profiles measured by radar chaff, aluminized balloons and parachutes, and tri-methyl-aluminum trails, although a number of successful 250 MHz and 1750 MHz telemetry flights have been made. Sun sensors, magnetometers, and temperature sensors have been flown and an electron density sensor was fired in early June. Development of other active sensors is continuing. (Author)

MULTIPLE POINT IGNITION IN HARP GUNS( )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The usual powder charge in the 16-inch HARP gun can be as long as 12 feet in an even longer chamber. If the charge length is more than 2 feet shorter than the available chamber, the pressure time curve can be significantly improved by dividing this interval into 2 to 4 sub-intervals by use of wooden spacers. An even more dramatic improvement can be achieved by igniting this column of powder at several points. Recently, five point ignition with two squibs in each location was used in the 119-foot long 16-inch gun with very good results. The service charge for a 16-inch gun is 660 pounds of standard 16-inch gun propellant. This charge will launch a 3000-pound projectile at 2800 feet per second, but is too slow burning to launch the standard HARP projectile plus sabot weight of 410 pounds at this velocity. With multiple point ignition, 1275 pounds of this old propellant accelerated the HARP projectile to 5900 feet per second, and an apogee of 414,000 feet was achieved. Even better performance can be achieved with multiple point ignition. A WM/M propellant with 0.220 web, 920 pounds, allows the HARP projectile to reach 6800 feet per second and an altitude of 540,000 feet while a 0.225 M8M propellant yields a muzzle velocity of 7000 feet per second and 590,000 feet apogee
Upper atmosphere winds measured by gun-launched projectiles( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The High Altitude Research Project (HARP) uses gun-launched projectiles to probe the upper atmosphere. Under this project, 5-inch projectiles have reached 70 km, and 16-inch projectiles have attained an altitude of 143 km over Barbados, West Indies. The first experimental program for the 16-inch gun has been the production of luminous tri-methyl aluminum (TMA) trails for the measurement of winds above 90 km. In the period July 1964 to February 1966, 49 such nightime trails were photographed and 29 of these trails have been analyzed. During 42 of these flights, concurrent ionosonde records were taken and the locations of sporadic E layers have been determined for comparison with the wind profiles. The wind data analyzed showed little evidence for the Rosenberg rotating wind vector model, but on nine trails direction reversals occuring in less than 3 km of vertical displacement were observed. Layers of constant direction flow with thicknesses greater than 8 km were observed on 14 trails, and a maximum wind speed of 147 m/sec was measured. The six trails of the night of 20 - 21 September showed a rapid variation of N - S component of wind at fixed altitude with peak-to-peak amplitude of over 200 m/sec. Sine waves were fitted to wind components at fixed altitude with fair to good standard deviations. (Author)
HARP 5-INCH AND 16-INCH GUNS AT YUMA PROVING GROUND, ARIZONA( )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The 5- and 16-inch guns at Yuma Proving Ground and their associated instrumentation and flight results for 1966 are described in detail. The introduction of multi-point ignition for the 16-inch gun produced a record altitude of 111 miles using special propellants and the moderate altitude of 77 miles with surplus Naval propellant. Twenty-four ionospheric wind profiles have been obtained from 16-inch gun firings and 15 stratospheric profiles from the 5- inch firings. Telemetry performance and ground recovery capability have been demonstrated
