Abstract : An ejector system for air launched weapons which considers the aircraft, store-ejector and store as a single system rather than as separate components is disclosed. The system includes a dual-piston store ejector having sufficient ballistic impulse and variable orifice capability to compensate for in-carriage store pitching moments and loads whereby greatly enhanced safe and accurate store separation is obtained.
