Abstract : This report describes the development of a dynamic calibrator mechanism which is incorporated as an integral part of a pulse thrust test stand system utilizing an acceleration-compensated load cell. The complete system is called a Dynamic Calibrator/Pulse Thrust Test Module and includes remote and semi-remote stations which control steady-state and dynamic calibration functions. A basic objective of the effort was an optimization of the pulse thrust engine - test function in combination with the capability of dynamic (single pulse or continuous wave) calibration. (Author)
