Project Description

Firing Mechanism Concept Design and Testing Infrastructure Development for application to a Sample Acquisition System or other Spacecraft-based Projectile Launching Operation

he team's objective was to analyze, design, build, and test a firing mechanism for the sample retrieving projectile (SaRP). The launcher is to serve as both a test launcher that can fire multiple test projectiles and as a backup for the pyrotechnic flight system. The work began with the modeling and design of both a pyrotechnic and a pressurized device. Ultimately, the team aimed to characterize the flight pyrotechnic system and to integrate a simpler pressurization system into the harpoon test stand.
