Abstract : The Deneye mine dispenser, used to deliver aerially emplaced antipersonnel mines, is designed to be carried aboard present and future Navy and Air Force aircraft. Several approaches to the design of an advanced solid-state control system for the Deneye dispenser were investigated, two of which were evaluated analytically. One concept uses individual indicated airspeed (IAS) transducers; the other uses a central IAS transducer. This report describes the two systems, the various types of possible circuit implementation, system operational aspects and possibilities, and overall cost effectiveness. (Author)
