Abstract : The compatibility with and separation of expendable stores from aircraft is a problem which has plagued engineers since the earliest days of flying. It gained early recognition in World War I. Since that time, regardless of the size or speed of the aircraft, or whether the stores were carried internally or externally, weapons compatibility and store separation have been continuous problems, despite the staggering advances in technology during the past fifty years. Not until the advent of high-speed jet aircraft, however, have the problems become of significant magnitude. The speed and complexities of modern fighter-bomber aircraft have made the solution of aircraft/store compatibility problems a necessity from both tactical and flight safety standpoints.
