Abstract : A frangible fly-through diaphragm for missile launcher tubes consists of two epoxy and fiberglass plies with each ply being scored in predetermined patterns. The plies are bonded together and a Mylar/aluminum ply can be located on the missile side to provide gas sealing and electromagnetic interference protection. A segmented foam rubber outer layer can also be provided for additional protection from missile jet plumes. (Author)
