Abstract : The report covers the work performed in developing a noise-simulation device for use in TOW training. Items covered are: background information on an original design, its problems and causes of failures, an interim quick-fix design which improves performance reliability, and a new firecracker design which is safe, highly reliable, and much lower in cost.
