Abstract : This study was conducted to determine the suspension needs of the LANCE Limited Mobility Launcher. A search of operational launcher test data was conducted and a parametric study of the LANCE concept was made. The results of these studies indicated that the launcher should be equipped with a sprung, damped suspension which will give the towed launcher mobility commensurate with the towing vehicle.
