Abstract : A platform carried by a rocket projectile for supporting an antenna or other type of terminal homing sensors which are required to survive a high-g launch phase. The platform uses compliant suspension with modified hemispherical support gimbals for bearing protection during a 10,000-12,000 g projectile launch environment. Post-launch lower-g environments permit the compliant suspension to function as a two-degree-of-freedom stabilized platform that can be used for guided projectiles such as the anti-radiation projectile missile.
