Abstract : The report concerns the concept of a continuously adjustable ejector system which accounts for the aircraft flight condition and ejects a store with an initial angular rate and linear velocity that results in a safe, repeatable, predictable nearly ballistic trajectory throughout the aircraft/store carriage envelope. The concept is especially important in the supersonic regime where the aerodynamic forces in the disturbed flow field control the initial trajectory. (Modified author abstract)
