Abstract : The summary data and results of tests performed on Minuteman Wing I Launcher Equipment Room (LER) Shock Isolators are presented in this report. The testing was performed by the Air Force Special Weapons Center at the request of Space and Missile Systems Organization (SAMSO). Single isolator displacement tests and single isolator shock tests were performed. The tests were conducted to determine the threshold of failure and the mode of failure for the LER isolator as the result of a shock loading condition or any other loading. The test results indicated a need for a number of improvements in the original design. Test data summary results, notation of observations made during testing, and other pertinent information are presented. (Author)
