Abstract : A fluidic missile attitude control system consisting primarily of a Singer-Kearfott pulse duration modulation (PDM) gyro, four U. S. Army Missile Command fluidic reaction valves, a Marotta Valve Corporation valve/regulator assembly, and four Rohm and Haas Company gas generators was evaluated statically on both cold and hot gas. During the course of the evaluation, certain problem areas were disclosed and are discussed. Data from both cold and hot gas runs are presented; however, much of the secondary data is not included.
