Abstract : The domed Plastic Environmental Protection Device (EPD) is specifically intended for use with rocket systems carried on attack helicopters. The concept is to be used as an Environmental Protection Device (EPD). The purpose of the EPD is to keep ice, snow, and dirt out of the tube. Previous EPD's have had flat plates for tube closures. This design uses spherical section domes to resist blast overpressure. (Author)
