Abstract : The report presents the design and performance predictions of the first of several proposed high cycle expeditionary shorebased aircraft recovery systems obtained by means of mathematical model computer simulation. This system consists of a steel wire rope purchase cable, a stationary low inertia cable storage system, and a constant radius multi-wrap capstan attached to an energy absorber. The results show that this system is capable of satisfying design requirements. (Author)
