Abstract : This patent application discloses a ground transporter for air-launched missiles. The transporter is constructed by bolting two pairs of 'H' beams across a flat-bed trailer. The bolts are applied through holes in the bottom flanges of the H beams. A pair of missile handling units are then bolted to each pair of H beams. The missile handling units are bolted at each of their ends to the top flanges of the H beams. Steel bushings add structural support to the bolt holes through the wooden beams of the trailer bed and hillside washers are used on the bolts through the H beams and the side 'C' channel rails of the trailer bed. Keywords: Ground Support Equipment; Trailers.
