Abstract : A missile launch simulator for testing the launch of a missile from a missile launcher on board an aircraft. The missile launch simulator emulates the functions of the missile's on board turbo generator by utilizing microprocessor controlled relays to provide phase A. phase B and phase C gyro drive signals to the missile's gyro when the umbilical cord connecting the missile to the launcher is opened during an emulated launch. The missile launch simulator also provides high voltage power to the missile's on board electronics after an emulated launch by utilizing microprocessor controlled relays and the missile launcher filament power to emulate the turbo generator's high voltage power signal which powers the missile's on board electronics after the missile is launched from the aircraft.
