Abstract : The 1.25 Inch Diameter Actuator is intended to control air vanes of a hyper velocity missile containing no warhead but designed to penetrate armored vehicles vehicles (tanks, etc.). A solenoid sec was written and presented to Orshansky. They manufactured solenoid valves built to this Spec. A preliminary test procedure was prepared to test the components and system. Preliminary actuator drawings were completed and given to the model shop for fabrication. Preliminary electronic drawings were given to EPG of a previously designed and manufactured two channel PWM controller. The HR design effort encompassed the actuators, gas/hydraulic power source, control electronics, actuator/air vane interface, output shaft seal design, assembly sequence and math model of system. The actuator, as mentioned previously, is hydraulic and is a dual, inline, configuration with one piston driving through the other. The piston assemblies are attached to the air vane shafts through linkage and shaft assemblies. The Gas/hydraulic power source consists of a gas bottle, squib valves, regulator valve, oil supply and burst diaphragm.
