In recent years many items of such equipment have been sold to other countries both by British industry and by the British Ministry of Defence.

This sets out to provide a quick and easy reference to the widest possible range of products and services, information about each being presented British uniform layout. do not claim that all items of defence equipment manufactured in Britain are included or described. Some are too complex to include in this type of presentation, others of which you may have heard are not yet in service.

Alternatively, your representatives in London can seek further information from the British Ministry of Defence or Ministry of in a We — Technology.

All are being built by Vosper Thornycroft at Woolston. The staff requirements called for a ship of about 2500 tons displacement which could contribute effectively to the defence of a convoy or other force, against surface ship or submarine attack and would moreover be fully capable of self-defence against aircraft, missiles or fast patrol craft. It had to be capable of matching comparable contemporary foreign ships in battle and performance. It also had to be able to patrol the high seas in all areas and in all weather and was required to be able to land armed or unarmed landing partiestodeal with civil disturbance or natural disaster. Brief details of the design arrived at to meet all these requirements are given below.

Clearly the sound basic concept and the detailed requirements of the Royal Navy will produce a fine warship, but it is fully recognised that other navies may require modifications in detail of both the armament and the equipment. Within the general space and weight concepts of the ship, there is ample scope to adapt the design to meet the particular requirements of other navies.

Faster and more sophisticated than a corvette, smaller and more economical than a first-rate frigate, the Yarrow frigate provides powerful armament and control systems for general defence. Designed to help developing nations protect their own interests, the Yarrow frigate gives economy in capital cost, in operating cost and in vital operating manpower at about 60 per cent of the equivalent figures for existing first-rate frigates The Yarrow frigate's twin-screw CODOG arrangement of fully automated machinery combines a single diesel engine of good specific fuel consumption giving high endurance and long-range cruising economy, with a large gas turbine of low specific machinery weight for high-speed operational performance. Normal cruising performance up to 16 knots is obtained from the Crossley-Pielstick PC2V engine driving through an automatic SSS synchronising clutch into a single gearbox from which two output shafts drive two controllable pitch propellers. Running on distillate fuel, life between piston withdrawals will be 12 000h or more. Full control is exercised by independent change of propeller pitch, through simple lever controls on the bridge.

Lubrication, power supplies, and machinery control systems have been designed to minimise interdependence, and fail-safe principles are employed. Also, normal sea-going conditions do not require all diesel generators and air-conditioning plants to be on load simultaneously, thus allowing further margins for maintenance. Pipe systems, too, have been kept as simple as possible, and the number of underwater fittings reduced to a minimum. The main armament of the Type 42 is the Sea Dart guided missile, providing the main air-defence role of life.

In so doing it has extended the range of craft that the Group can offer to include a number of extremely sophisticated boats of (34-60 ft) the most up-to-date design in the 10-1 8 range. Theoretical study and long practical experience in all weather conditions have produced the standard Nelson hulls of various carefully chosen sizes. They are of round bilge form and constructed in glassreinforced plastics (GRP) to give both high performance and good seakeeping. The structure is of exceptional strength, with built-in tanks and watertight subdivision. GRP has the considerable additional advantages that it is not liable to rot or corrode or suffer m The 183 m The The 12 13 7 m damage can be quickly and Routine maintenance of the hull is reduced to a minimum. The 183 m (60 ft) hull has been developed from the 17 m (56 ft) boat for use as a patrol craft, with or without a light armament. These boats are suitable for such duties as coastal patrol, anti-smuggling or air-sea rescue in open waters. The Keith Nelson 12 m (40 ft) hull, which has been used extensively for patrol boats, pilot boats, personnel launches, etc, over the last five years, has now been redesigned to be 13 7 m (45 ft) in length with a corresponding increase of about 03 m (1 ft) in beam.

Its capability stems from an unbroken record of 25 years' collaboration with the British Government in the development of guidance systems for acoustic homing torpedoes. The homing system electronic packages for every British tcrpedo in service or under development have been designed and produced by this company.

They are: 1. Sea-going 3D underwater tracking range, which can simultaneously track three separate targets and plot trajectories in real time to an accuracy of a few yards. Suitable for applications which require shallow and deep-water operation of the tracking range. 2. Portable underwater tracking range (targetcentred 3D tracker), designed for fleet use in submarines, which provides a numeric 3D record of torpedoes fired by or against a submarine. Long-range tracking with high-definition mode in final attack phase. 3. Fixed tracking range, which can be used as a short-range, shallow-water, high-definition system or a long-range deep-water multi-target system. Signals from sea bed or surface buoyed arrays are transmitted shore installation via cable or radio data links. these tracking systems require 'active' targets. A standard range of synchronised acoustic transmitters, from 12 75 in to 21 in diameter have been developed for this purpose. These contain low-drift digital timing sources with a stability of better than 5 parts in 100 million. They are fitted into the target hull and do not materially affect the dynamic characteristics of the target. They can also be supplied as part of a more comprehensive practice head to replace the warhead. For simple underwater location, the company markets an acoustic transmitter which can operate continuously for three weeks, at depths up to 365 m It can be used with existing sonar receivers, (1 200 ft). although a portable directional receiver is available. to a All synchronised acoustic transmitter (SAT) fitted in the weapon practice head.

There are six possible settings of ISD and five settings of FD. The presetter forms one half of an ac Wheatstone bridge (the other half being within the weapon). Selection of a new depth setting unbalances the bridge, the detector senses the unbalance and operates which delivers, via the 'set' switch, power to a Ledex stepping switch in the torpedo. Operation of the 'set' switch causes the Ledex switch to step round until the new depth is selected and the bridge re-balanced. The above circuit is duplicated for the two depth a relay settings needed. produced by an about 1 kHz.

Despite the compact size and light weight of all units, the system can handle several torpedoes. Correct operation is indicated by lamps and the selected switch positions are also illuminated to give immediate and constant visual indication of all settings. The system is arranged to fail safe. An interlock is incorporated to prevent operator error.

It has been designed for diving work in relatively shallow waters Section 3: Underwater vessels, weapons and equipment Compression chambers for divers The role played by the professional diver in underwater operations, both military and civil, has become increasingly important in recent years both in defence and in projects involving marine surveys, repairs and demolitions. The proficient amateur diver, participating in a novel but increasingly popular sport, is extending his dives to greater, but more hazardous depths. Diving operations frequently entail working at considerable depths, and the staging procedure of a slow ascent to the surface which is necessary to allow the become adjusted gradually to pressure changes without suffering decompression sickness, has imposed severe limitations on the time which can be allocated to the actual work beneath the surface. The use of a chamber permits a more rapid ascent followed by a surface decompression completed relatively free of the hazards associated with the staging procedure previously employed. This has the diver to Type 1 — Ten-man two-compartment compression chamber connection and a telephone system is incorporated in each compartment. Medical supplies and food can be passed by means of a small hand air lock.

Boosting is therefore charge receivers, such as inert gas is (1800 necessary to accumulators, to 280 kgf/cm 2 (4000 lbf/in 2 ). Dunlop booster sets are designed to transfer the maximum amount of gas with minimum loss, by feeding the compressor via a demand valve. This valve allows full pressure to be drawn from the supply bottle into the compressor at the beginning of the compression cycle. Full output continues to be obtained until the pressure in the supply bottles falls to 35 kgf/cm 2 (50 lbf/in 2 ). No gas is lost during the compression cycle because the crankcase of the compressor is sealed and the breathing or piston losses are piped back into the firststage inlet. Wastage is thus practically nil. Dunlop nitrogen boost sets are available powered by a 400/440 V, three-phase electric motor.

It also includes, when necessary, consultation on all ship construction aspects of installation. Cost-effective minehunting demands speed, accuracy and a highly reliable mine destruction capability. Accuracy is of particular importance, because the whole object of minehunting is to provide safe navigation channels with a minimum of delay. This can be done either by finding and marking areas where no mines have been laid, or by destroying the mines in a carefully defined area. To achieve the necessary very high standards of navigational accuracy, the mine-hunting sonar is integrated into a specially designed command and navigation sub-system. Important elements of the system are a pilotage radar, used to take range and bearings of reference short-scope buoys, and a minefield plot- for ting table. The other essentials in a properly integrated mine- hunting system are: (a) a mine-destruction capability, adequate communication facilities to maintain continuous contact with other vessels in the force and to provide control of the mine destroying team, propulsion and manoeuvring (c) sophisticated ability to enable the craft to navigate with precision at low speed under coastal tide conditions.

The first two of these factors are under the full control of the designer and, in the case of MS26 and MS27, are optimised by the use of maximum transmitted power, high directivity index and a sophisticated and highly Interference sensitive receiving and display system. levels and transmission losses depend partly on the sea conditions prevailing at any time, but the effect of interference is minimised in both sonars by careful receiver design and hull outfits. Under slow-speed operation, when the background noise is that caused by the breaking and pounding of the waves equivalent The performance to, say, sea state of 4, the theoretical can be calculated to be 6825m initial detection range (7500yd).

The MS26 transducer array is mounted within a Plessey hull outfit with a glass-reinforced plastic dome. Type MS27, general description Plessey sonar MS27 differs from MS26 only in its associated hull outfit. The MS27 transducer array is mounted in a Royal Navy hull outfit 19 or similar, which renders the equipment suitable for installation in small escorts down to about 750 tons displacement. Type MS27 can be used in the surveillance role in association with a separate fire control sonar within the same hull outfit. This enables the ship to continue surveillance for new threats while engaging a target already detected.

The dunking' sonar is fully capable of dealing with the modern submarine and has proved robust and reliable in service to the satisfaction of the Royal Navy. 120 Section 4: Surface sensors, control systems and weapons Helicopter sonar unit and computerised sonar ray trace indicator * Sonar has proved a most effective means of submarine location, while helicopters, with their outstanding manoeuvrability, are in many respects ideal platforms for anti-submarine warfare. The combination of the two, in the form of the Plessey Type 195 'dunking' sonar shown on the opposite page, has already proved highly successful in many trials under battle conditions. However, sonar is based on the assumption that sound waves travel outwards in a straight line and at a fixed speed from the source. This is not always the case; temperature gradients, changes in salinity and other parameters affect the transmission of sound waves through water. Especially changes in temperature with increasing depth can reflect and refract sound waves to a considerable extent. Acoustic ray trace indicator The new Plessey Acoustic Ray Trace Indicator (ARTI) has been developed by the Marine Systems Division for the Royal Navy to apply automatically corrections due to such effects. The equipment, which provides rapid corrections to the is very compact, detection range of any sonar by using temperature/ depth or velocity/depth profiles derived from suitable detectors. The indicated correction enables targets to be located with greatly improved accuracy. ARTI can accept input data from any temperature or velocity-profile source, but is specifically designed to accept plots automatically from either the Royal Navy sound velocity recorder, or from the PlesseySippican expendable bathythermograph which is described in detail elsewhere in this Catalogue. The bathythermograph is already in service with ten navies.

Thanks to the enormous range and variety of modern sensor equipment now available, the problem is further complicated by the sheer volume of information pouring into the command centre too quickly for human sorting and comprehension. Ferranti data-handling and weapon control systems provide the answer. Based on a range of sophisticated microminiature digital computers, Ferranti systems are capable of accepting automatically a mass of information from radars, sonars, passive equipment, data links, etc, of digesting, correlating, ordering and displaying information in clear, comprehensive form and, subject to command approval, of aiming, controlling and tiring such weapons as guns, anti-aircraft or anti-submarine missiles, torpedoes, etc. Ferranti systems can also, if required, do much more, such as assembling messages for data links, controlling radars, forecasting or recommending actions and Ferranti on order FM1600 computers are currently in service or for control of the following weapons: Seadart Seawolf Seacat IKARA Guns Torpedoes and in various systems for the control of aircraft and helicopter operations. solving navigational problems. Unique to Ferranti systems is the flexibility of operation offered both in terms of the range of vessels in which they can be fitted either as original equipment — or subsequently, and in the wide range of duties they can undertake. At the heart of all Ferranti systems lies either the computer the most the FM1600B advanced microminiature digital computers currently available. Ferranti has applied the same degree of sophistication to all the other modules vital to a complete, integrated system, such as modules for processing radar data, for encoding synchro outputs for weapon control, for operating data links and for generating information for display. These and many others are the 'building blocks' of Ferranti systems easily and quickly assembled in different configurations to create a system exactly tailored to any type of vessel FM1600 — or and any range of duties. Having worked closely with the Royal Navy and other members of NATO, Ferranti has wide experience, technical ability and large-scale resources to provide data-handling and weapon control systems to meet specific service requirements, present or future.

The advantage of this standardisation is that logistics problems are much simplified because the Mk 100 VR Series can be used with different types of generator on one ship a facility not available before. The Mk 1 00 VR is made up of a standard basic tray or sub-assembly on which the circuits common to all generators are mounted. Different units may be selected from a range of sub-units and easily attached to the basic tray to meet the specific generator requirements. This versatility means that the Mk 100 VR is suitable for operation with generator outputs of 1 1 7, 205, or 450 V and at frequencies of 60 or 400 Hz three-phase. — Sea Dart missile launch Other products addition to the equipments shown on these two pages, the AEI Control Engineering Department can also offer thyristor motor-control systems, degaussing equipment, cathodic protection equipment which is marketed jointly with Morgan Berkeley, three-term control systems, motor thermal protection units and several other items of control equipment including Standard Admiralty Modules.

It consists of a master unit and control panel, with additional alarm control, speed signal potentiometer (electro-magnetic log), one or more alarm bells, one or more annunciators and an isolating transformer as reliability required.

The aims have been to improve its legibility and usefulness to the mariner, and to make increasing use of modern techniques to enable new information to be the chart more speedily. In addition, thought has been applied to the "metrication" of Admiralty Charts in view of the United Kingdom Government's declared policy to convert all measurements to metric units. This change should be of considerable benefit to many overseas users of Admiralty Charts who normally employ incorporated in metric units. The which result has will a new style chart has been adopted radically different from former Admiralty of the old and new styles are shown here. been that look Charts. Examples The new style charts will show depths and heights in metres. colours and style of lettering will be used and the result be a general simplification and greater legibility. New will The Hydrographic Department The Hydrographic Department dates from 1795 when the Board of Admiralty appointed Mr Alexander Dalrymple, Hydrographer of the East India Company, as the first Hydrographer of the Navy. Before this, the collection of charts and hydrographic information was the responsibility of the individual ships' captains which proved a haphazard business. It resulted in more ships being lost by stranding and shipwreck than by enemy action. During the term of office of the second Hydrographer of the Navy, Captain T Hurd, RN, ships of the Royal Navy were getting the best charts available. The present Hydrographer of the Navy, Rear Admiral G S Ritchie, CB, DSC. FRICS, is the nineteenth and all, with the exception of Mr Alexander Dalrymple, have been naval officers. Department now provides a comprecoverage of navigational charts and publications. Great Britain is one of the few countries which The Hydrographic world-wide hensive can provide this coverage. British Admiralty Charts are used the world over by all nationalities. The primary concern of the Hydrographic Department is of course the needs of the Royal Navy, but consideration is also given to the needs of the British Merchant Service and foreign shipping. Apart from charts and publications supplied to the Royal Navy and United Kingdom Government Departments, the value of sales of charts at home and abroad last year was more than £ 800 000, nearly two thirds of which was for sales abroad. The distribution of Admiralty Charts and hydrographic publications is made through appointed commercial agencies throughout the world, but further details and information are available from: MINISTRY OF DEFENCE (NAVY) The Hydrographic Department Taunton, Somerset, England Telephone: 0823-7900 Cables: Creechup Telex: 46274 Section 4: Surface sensors, control systems and weapons Navigational computer and other data-processing systems The company is among the leading authorities on ways in which computers may be used in situations where a mass of data has to be collated, analysed and presented, as for instance in ship navigation and maritime research. On-line real-time electronic data-processing systems are supplied that produce plots, graphs, charts and drawings in cartesian form from an input of positional data from any type of navigation aid and other measured The required forms of input and output vary widely among users. Each system is, therefore, likely to be unique but all are identified by or recorded parameters. the generic name of Hydroplot. Hydroplot, which is particularly suitable for research and scientific applications, is installed on the ocean survey ships H MS Hecate, H MS Hecla and HMS Hydra as well as on the Fishery Research Vessel Explorer. Great benefit may be derived by both naval and merchant vessels from using computer-based systems that can undertake many of the tasks associated with management, such as collision avoidance, satellite navigation, and weapon systems organisation. Commodore is a co-ordinated system which, using an online computer, handles both economically and effectively a ship's total requirements of this sort. By accepting inputs from such devices as radar, sonar, radio navigation aids and communication equipment, Commodore can provide assistance in navigation, ship handling, weather routeing, loading and other duties.

In HMS Brave Borderer, as in her sister ship HMS Brave Swordsman, three Marine Proteus engines form the sole propulsive machinery. The success of these installations led to the adoption of the Marine Proteus by the navies of Germany, Denmark, Greece, Sweden, Italy, Malaysia, Brunei, Iran, Libya and the USA. The Marine Proteus also has ideal power characteristics for hydrofoil craft and hovercraft. The Mountbatten Class hovercraft (SR N4) has four Proteus, the Wellington Class (BH. 7) one Proteus, and the BH. 8 two Proteus engines.

Adopted as standard by the Ministry of Defence (Naval), the YJ or Ventura as it is called has an output ranging — — from 475 to 1920bhp. Although outputs are high, running costs are low these are easily-proven facts. The shorter stroke of the Paxman engine means that piston speed, the really vital factor, is most moderate. For example, the 197mm (7-75in) stroke (RPH or YH) diesel running at 1 200rev/min has a piston speed of 470m/min (1 550ft/ min). This may be compared with a vertical unit of similar power but with a 305mm (1 2in) stroke which, at 750rev/min, would have a piston speed of 460m/min Other features contributing to the low (1 500ft/min). running costs are the small size and low weight of the cylinder heads, pistons and other components, which make overhaul and maintenance a simple procedure. Periods between major overhauls often exceed 20 OOOh. Because of their inherent reliability, Paxman marine auxiliary engines are particularly suitable for multiunit installations operating under remote or automated First is the RPH, with outputs from 1 37 to 825bhp and speeds of up to 1500rev/min. The result of some 30 years of progressive development, this series of heavy-duty engines has a proven history of reliability and a service life unsurpassed by any other make of diesel throughout the world. Second is the YH series, direct-injection in particularly suitable for installations where space considerations pactness which is a main advantage of the vee-form design, smooth running, long service life between overhauls, and the ability to operate satisfactorily on marine diesel oil Class B.

It is arranged in easily removable panels. As regards heat insulation, it is assumed that 2 percent of the total heat energy available from consumed fuel in a liquid-cooled engine can be accounted for in radiation. Although the acoustic cladding is not a complete insulator, it can be expected that a total increase in cooling capacity of approximately 5 percent would be required and it is suggested that the normally fitted coolers (with excess capacity in the order of 10-15 percent) would accommodate this increase. This cladding method can also be applied to other diesel engines. countless vee-form engines of The triangular configuration, coupled with the extensive use of the engine castings, has considerable advantages, providing an extremely compact power unit with, for a compression-ignition engine, an unusually high power/weight ratio. For example, the CT18-42K engine (see engine data) offers 3840bhp with a ratio of 1-43kg/hp (3 1 5lb/hp), bmep is conservatively rated at 9 45kg/cm 2 (134-4lb/in 2 ). A special feature of the Deltic range of marine engines is the reverse reduction gearbox which can be supplied as a unit integral with the engine. Even when fitting this unit, a power/ weight ratio of just under 1-8kg/shp (4lb/shp) is achieved and the basic concept of a compact power unit is enhanced by this light alloy for feature. The original specification called for an engine with a low maintenance factor capable of being dealt with by semi-skilled engine room staff, and only minor attention is called for during the life of the engine up to major servicing. The complete interchangeability of common parts and components, such as auxiliary pumps and control units, permits the extensive use of the repair-by-replacement technique. Major units of the engine such as the blower, phasing gear case and reverse reduction gearbox, are also interchangeable thus reducing servicing time. For fast patrol boat installations where boat trim and space limitations are of major significance, a vee-drive gearbox can be supplied which enables a particularly compact installation arrangement to be achieved. To match the concept of light weight and compactness, a special range of ancillary installation equipment has been developed in conjunction with the respective manufacturers of exhaust and air intake silencers, coolant heat exchangers, oil coolers and priming pumps. A Deltic-engined installation offers substantial advantages where weight and space affect the performance of the vessel and often make possible machinery arrangements previously considered impracticable.

Section 9: Weapons and ammunition Bar mine system Bar mines and mine-laying equipment The new British bar mine system combines great inhibiting enemy movement with effectiveness in simplicity, safety and economy in the deployment of mines. The system is based on the use of a new type of mine and of a mine-laying plough'. The mines are transported in and the plough is towed by any suitable vehicle, usually a tracked armoured personnel carrier. Advantages The new bar mine system has many advantages, the most important being: Greater effectiveness by mine detectors and severe.

A conveyor arm above the tow bar accepts bar mines loaded from the armoured towing vehicle, without exposing personnel to enemy fire. The conveyor is adjustable in height to adapt it to any towing vehicle. It feeds the mines to an adjustable spacing mechanism, which deposits them in a trench of adjustable depth made by the plough. Two harrow discs then close the trench; a dragged chain may be used to smooth the surface. The plough and harrow can also be raised to allow the mines to be laid on the surface. All wearing parts, such as the plough point, are quickly and simply replaced. The machine can be used on any type of soil capable of being ploughed. Cage wheels can be quickly fitted to the two hubs to provide extra stability on soft or uneven ground at high travelling speeds. The plough is capable of laying buried mines at the rate of 600-700 mines per hour and at even higher rates on the surface.

The mine cannot be detected by any current electro-magnetic mine detector. Extensive trials have shown that this mine is completely effective against any tank track and causes severe damage to tank belly armour The fuze is fitted before operational use and is armed immediately prior to loading; the mine can thus be handled, transported and stored in safety.

It makes use of small, rugged, low-cost, passive sensors (geophones) which, because they are buried below ground level, are virtually undetectable. They may be sited near likely intruder approach routes or round a perimeter. Their deployment area can be many miles from the display unit. TOBIAS has four independent channels on each of which up to 20 geophones may be connected. Thus, if desired, a considerable frontage or perimeter can be protected by one system. Maximum detection distances for one geophone depend largely on the nature of the ground and the amount of natural and man-made seismic activity in the area, but for a walking man this is seldom less than a circle of radius of 50 metres round the sensor. Distances considerably in excess of this have been frequently achieved and circular detection patterns of 300 metres radius or more are not uncommon. Visual indication of movement on each channel is provided at the display unit; an aural display (headset) also allows the nature of movement on each channel to be recognised (man, animal, vehicle, etc). The aural display also allows operator to monitor activity on all four channels continuously and simultaneously. Power supply (contained in lid of display unit) is eight fcV standard 1 which provide a minimum U2 of (or equivalent) cells, 72 hours' continuous operation.

The most important innovation is the replacement of the thermionic valve-operated amplifier by a transistorised unit of modern design, and the fact that the control box is incorporated in the amplifier. As a result the entire equipment is now much lighter, the amplifier weighing only 1 -8 kg (4 lb) complete with battery, and much more compact and insensitive to mechanical shock and vibration. The mine detector comprises a search head mounted at the end of a telescopic pole (or handle), an amplifier unit and headphones, together with all interconnecting For transport these are stored in a robust case, which also contains a spare boxes, other battery, test extension cable and accessories. cables. wooden transit Right: an assault pioneer of the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) using a mine detector No 4C to search for mines Below: the mine detector No 4C with all accessories and carrying case A Division of United Scientific Holdings Ltd UNITED SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS LTD Kirkman House, 54a Tottenham Court Road, London, W1 P OBQ, England Telex: 265403 Cables: Scodil London W1 Telephone: 01-636 5905 229 Section 10: Sensors and control systems for ground forces Above: LNS 101 equipment showing standard units Below: the Chieftain tank 230 is fitted with LNS 101 equipment Section 10: Sensors and control systems for ground forces Land navigation systems for military vehicles Conditions of modern warfare demand that small units should be able to move rapidly about the battlefield under all conditions, but particularly at night or when visibility is poor. LNS 101 is a land navigation system that has been developed by the Aviation Electric Company using the Arma-Brown gyro compass as the standard heading A second system (LNS 102) is available, reference. using a magnetic heading transmitter where conditions of use do not warrant a gyro compass. Advantages These land navigation systems accurately and continuously compute and display the geographical location of the vehicle and the direction in which it is headed. The presentation is designed to let the commander use the information immediately without need for any manual plotting or calculating. The LNS makes it possible for crews of tanks and any other vehicles to navigate across unknown country quickly and easily even when features on the ground cannot be seen, as for instance in darkness, fog or smoke or when hatch covers must be kept closed. It also enables vehicles to navigate accurately in country devoid of landmarks, where reliable maps are not available or in areas lacking permanent topographical It permits the position of the vehicle to be quickly and accurately reported without map reading. The LNS 101 is supplied to the British, Canadian and US Armies for operational use in tanks such as the Chieftain and Centurion, and armoured personnel carriers such as the M1 1 3A1 The advantages of using a self-contained deadreckoning system have been firmly established. While armoured vehicles have received priority in respect to fitment of land navigation equipment, it has become increasingly evident that the ability to navigate under adverse conditions can be equally important in other vehicles used under combat conditions. features. Method of operation The continuous computation and display of the present position of the vehicle is obtained by automatic deadreckoning from a known starting point. The distance travelled by the vehicle is measured by the odometer drive, while the direction of travel of the vehicle is derived electrically from either a gyro compass or a magnetic heading transmitter. Prior to moving off, the starting point co-ordinates, obtained from a standard military map grid, are set into the appropriate units. Any subsequent movement of the vehicle is continuously followed and displayed.

They afford stereoscopic vision and have large exit pupils providing vision comfort. The sights convert the radiation from the vehicle's beams which infra-red light source into visible light and because of the wide field of view combined with wide-aperture optics, driving at night using the sights compares favourably with night driving using a visible form of illumination. The sights are robust instruments, designed to withstand vibration and extreme climatic conditions experienced in military service. Wire-heated windows Barr & Stroud wire-heated windows are particularly suitable for military sighting instruments where exceptional optical performance and electrical reliability are required. These precision-made yet rugged windows do not have diffraction effects, and retain definition throughout their operating temperature range, typically - 65 to -50 C. Light transmission is not less than 90% and there are none of the grading and delamination problems frequently associated with conducting film windows. Windows are available in a variety of shapes and sizes; thermostatic control can be provided. Infra-red materials Calcium aluminate glasses transmit from the ultraviolet to over 5;j. and combine high strength and hardness with resistance to abrasion and thermal shock. A new arsenic triselenide glass transmits well from 1-5 to 16a and when anti-reflection coated has over 90% in transmission in the 8-1 4;x band. Other materials are available and all can be supplied a variety of forms including domes, lenses, prisms and plates.

Unless his sights are illuminated the firer must rely on rough weapon alignment with only a small chance of hitting the enemy. Illuminated sights are therefore essential, but while being easily seen by the firer they must not be so bright, or so positioned, that they interfere with his view of the target under difficult night conditions. The illuminations must also be self-energising, free from deterioration (as occurs with luminous paints), free from radio-activity hazard and long-lasting. The Trilux night sight meets all these requirements. It is unique, simple, safe, adaptable, long-lasting and robust. The solution The Trilux night sight consists of: Foresight. The blade incorporates a luminous glass tube, coated on the inside with phosphorus which is activated by tritium gas. The glass tube is manufactured for the Royal Small Arms Factory by Saunders-Roe Developments Limited. It has the following advantages: Its brightness can be varied in manufacture to meet the requirement; its size allows it to be adapted to all known weapon foresights; the illuminant is completely sealed; it has a long half life of 8-10 years. Various configurations of foresight blade as made at the Royal Small Arms Factory are illustrated. Backsight. This incorporates a large aperture of the optimum size to match the requirement of the nightadapted eye. As with any small daylight aperture the firer instinctively places the illuminated foresight in the centre of the aperture. Ease of use The technique of firing is simple and a trained soldier can be instructed in a matter of 10 minutes. Effectiveness World-wide trials by the British Army show that, under light conditions where a man-sized standing target can just be seen between 20 and 50 metres, the average firer will score 70 per cent hits. Using Trilux night sights a soldier can effectively engage all targets out to the furthest distance at which he can see them: From 15 metres dark night and background. To 300 metres light night and background. Apart from its night-firing advantage the Trilux night sight increases accuracy in 'quickfire' engagements. — — Security The luminous tube away give the concealed from direct view by the enemy, and is firer's field tests in poor daylight conditions and have shown that the sight does not position at night. Adaptation to your weapons In addition to the British Army rifle and machine gun, sights have been made and fitted to a number of overseas weapons including the Colt AR15, Heckler and Koch G3, FN's FAL, the US M1 and M14 and the Italian BM59 (M1 7-62 conversion).

A sensor is fitted to the elevating mass of a gun and its output is relayed to digital readouts. As the gun is elevated or depressed its elevation is continuously displayed on a counter. This obviates presetting of the elevation and laying by bubble and lends itself to automation. It improves the accuracy as it measures the actual elevation of the elevating mass, its readout can be set to 0-25 mil and the layer's task vastly simplified. to existing guns. is It The sensing head can be fitted swiftly and simply standard equipment and is designed to be interchangeable with any other head unit and to be mounted on any gun. The head, which has a cross-levelling capability, is fixed to the elevating mass. No accurate aligning of the sensing unit to the gun barrel is necessary as this is done electronically is when sight testing. The electronic unit carries all the electronics necessary for the operation of the sight. It can be mounted in any convenient place on the gun or in the turret. The miniaturised components, using silicon transistors and integrated circuits, are mounted on a number of plug-in printed circuit boards which facilitate maintenance as they are easily and rapidly replaceable. The mean time between failures (MTBF) is more than 2000 hours. The display unit is a standard design and is common to all equipments. It incorporates two pairs of light indicators. The first pair shows whether the detector head cross axis is level and, if not, in which direction it is inclined. The second pair indicates to the layer whether he is elevating or depressing within the speed range of the sight.

Since the mirror is electrically controlled, a variety of tracking control configuration and positions is available. The bi-ocular eye-pieces remain in a forwardlooking direction at all times. In both axes, azimuth and elevation, the rate at which the mirror scans is related to the movement made of the tracking control handle. The scan rate is thus directly controlled by the operator. The servo-driven rotating head on the top of the sight protects the top mirror from buffeting by external forces and ensures that an optically acceptable window is provided at the correct angle to receive the top mirror image. The window is fitted with an electrically driven wiper with washing and de-misting facilities. The sight is collapsible for easy storage.

The periscope illustrated is the one now replacing the original instruments fitted to the cupola of the Chieftain tank and versions of it are under development for the Scorpion, Fox and other British fighting vehicles. Prototypes for M.109, M.113, Leopard, AMX series and several other fighting vehicles are also under development. These instruments, which can be produced to fit most types of military vehicles, are non-reflecting and of advanced design embodying several advantages: Immunity from detection by reflected light from the sun, a searchlight or an infra-red source. Immunity to the crew from shattering glass, because the two prisms comprising the periscope are isolated so that if the upper prism is damaged in action the lower prism protects the 1) 2) user's eyes. Synthetic rubber encapsulation affords protection to the periscope and the user, allows easy withdrawal for replacement and provides a sealed instrument. The periscope is fully desiccated and nitrogen-filled. Collimation of line-of-sight during manufacture ensures that when used as a nest of periscopes a common horizon is obtained without further adjustment. The instrument remains fully operational over the temperature range -40 C to — 80 C and can withstand air transportation in an unpressurised cabin at 11 200 m (37 000 ft) without damage and an external water head of 46 m (1 5 ft) without leakage into the periscope or vehicle. Better light transmission compared with a plastics type periscope results in far greater efficiency under threshold conditions of dawn and dusk.

It may be used with any make of rifle, machine-gun or anti-tank weapon. Special brackets enable the unit to be quickly attached or detached from the weapon. Adjustments are provided for accurate alignment of the illuminated graticule with the weapon sights, and for optimum positioning of the projector. The unit is operated from a 6 V portable battery which provides six hours of continuous use. This is regarded as adequate for a typical one-night operation. The battery is carried in a webbing pouch and is rechargeable. All electrical parts are suitably enclosed and the unit is panclimatic and immersible. It conforms to the relevant NATO standards and to the specifications of the defence forces of most countries. Muzzle bore sights Muzzle bore sights are optical devices for checking and adjusting the accuracy of gun-sights. The standard muzzle bore sight is a right-angled telescope for fitting in the muzzle of the gun to enable it to be accurately trained on a target. The gun-sight, or the graticule of the gunner's periscope, is then independently adjusted to the target, which brings it into exact alignment with the gun barrel. With this device the aiming accuracy can thus be checked at any time without going on to a firing range or expending ammunition. special muzzle bore sight also The includes a reference telescope for inserting in the breech end of the gun barrel which enables the ballistic performance of the gun to be measured with great accuracy. Muzzle bore sights can be provided with adaptors number of different sizes of barrel, including 76 mm, 105 mm, 120 mm, a 20 pounder and suitable for a 5-5 and 6-5 in. These instruments were designed in consultation with the British Military Vehicles and Engineering Establishment, are fully approved by the Ministry of Defence and are in service with the British Army and many other armies throughout the world.

As a result much effort was made to destroy or neutralise enemy artillery by counter-bombardment. However, before counter-bombardment fire can be brought to bear, the enemy weapon must first be located.

A typical sound ranging base consists of seven microphones, connected by a data transmission link to a data recording and processing centre. To achieve an accurate location, the position of each of the microphones must be fixed by precise survey, and the time intervals must be corrected for non-standard atmospheric conditions. An observer is deployed in the forward area at an advanced post. It is his task to listen to the enemy artillery fire and to switch the system on when he wishes it to record. He also provides additional information such as estimated type and calibre of weapon, number of rounds fired and so on. This information is relayed to the data recording and processing centre by radio. Two advanced posts are normally deployed. Sound ranging has three applications: 2. The location of a hostile weapon (passive role) The adjustment of counter-bombardment fire by sound comparison (active role) 3. Self-help procedures: 1 a.

The former is selected when the sight is to be correlated with the gun and is used in conjunction with a bore sight. The latter is used for laying the gun. The graticules are adjustable in tangential elevation and azimuth and are ganged together so that the ballistic graticule becomes aligned when the setting graticule is being adjusted. A circular graticule may be illuminated when the low-magnification objective is in use and this defines that portion of the field which would be covered if the high-magnification objective were to be selected. The illumination of all the graticules may be adjusted to suit the brightness of the target. The exposed window of the objective, which is a plane window, is cleared by a wiper and washer and the eyepieces are prevented from fogging by thermostatically controlled eyepiece heaters.

When span junction posts and other accessories are available, it will be possible to build multi-span bridges of any length on fixed or floating piers. The basic unit is a light alloy box section top panel, 183cm (6ft) in length. Sections can be rapidly joined together to make a pair of long girders which form the load-carrying members of the bridge.

Very long bridges can be made up of successive spans joined together by span junction posts and supported on piers or pontoons. Kerb sections can be fitted along the edges of the bridge. Where required, footwalks and handrails are available. Ramp units give access at the ends of the bridge which may be placed directly on the ground. There is no need to rest the bridge on grillages. The bridge can be assembled, in 1 -8-metre (6ft) increments up to the longest span of 487 metres (160ft), by 24 men and a NCO. No cranes are needed and no component requires more than six men to lift it. minimising the time required to unload stores, and by providing pin-hole aligning devices to ensure quick and easy insertion of panel pins. When a single- or double-storey girder bridge has been assembled it is launched across the gap before the decking is laid. Both single- and double-storey bridges are launched with the aid of a central launching nose a light alloy beam which is long enough to touch down on the far bank before the centre of gravity of the whole bridge assembly passes beyond the launching rollers.

Each component has integral interlocking fittings and, when assembled, the equipment provides a clear non-skid roadway 3-3 m (11 ft) wide. General description The basic components of the Class 16 bridge are deck boxes, ramps, articulator boxes, floats and sponsons. The deck box combines the functions of bridge girders and cross girders and contributes buoyancy in floating applications. The top of the box forms the deck of the bridge. Tapered ramps are fitted to each end of the bridge to provide an easily negotiable access. Hydraulically operated articulator boxes are fixed between the deck boxes and the ramps to allow adjustment for varying bank heights with floating bridge and raft applications. For floating bridges and rafts, pneumatic floats are fitted to the deck boxes to give additional buoyancy and stability. Sponsons with integral turntable brackets for 40 hp Johnson outboard motors are fitted at each corner of a floating raft for powered raft operations. raft applications Clearspan bridge 1 5 2 m (50 ft) clearspan bridge is assembled from seven deck boxes and two pairs of ramps.

Class 30 Trackway Class 60 Trackway Application Class 30 Trackway Application The Class 60 heavy-duty Trackway is designed for both tracked and wheeled vehicles. In general it is used to support tanks over very soft ground and in areas of large vehicle concentrations such as may occur at bridge and ferry approaches, at the entry and exit to marshalling areas and other areas subject to heavy traffic. Class 60 Trackway is also used to protect Class 30 Trackway designed for wheeled vehicles and for tracked vehicles with rubber pads. Heavier vehicles can use the Trackway when ground conditions are favourable and tanks up to Class 50 may cross at an angle provided they do not slew while on the track. Class 30 Trackway is a simple, quick and highly efficient means of maintaining vehicle movement over soft ground, particularly in conjunction with amphibious or other temporary bridges where its application extends the choice of crossing point. One of the main features of Class 30 Trackway is that it can be launched and recovered by the transport vehicle and can therefore be put into use without delay. is Assembly Class 30 Trackway is assembled from a number of extruded aluminium alloy planks with interlocking captive tongue-andgroove joints, forming a continuous non-skid surface 335 m (11ft) wide and normally 49-95 m (150 ft 9 in) long. This standard Trackway length is reeled on to a carriage assembly transported by normal platform trucks. Class 30 Trackway is launched from the truck and later recovered on to the truck. The spool carrying the length of track is mounted on a frame and turntable assembly which clamps to the truck platform. This arrangement permits the equipment to be stowed within the vehicle dimensions or swung to the launching and recovery positions. Launching Class 30 Trackway is launched forward over the truck cab, using a quickly fitted removable roller frame launching assembly. The track may also be launched over the rear of the truck. The preparation and launching operation can be completed in about ten minutes by a three-man team. tank crossing points. Class 60 Trackway is quickly and easily assembled and the components can be transported in quantity by standard trucks. at Assembly The heavy-duty Trackway is assembled from interlocking 0-23 m extruded aluminium alloy planks made in two sizes: 4-57 0-23 m (7 ft 6 in -9 in). These dimen9 in) and 2-28 (1 5 ft sions enable a continuous load-carrying mat to be assembled quickly over areas of soft ground.

A pre(60 4-6 m (25 assembled length of Class 60 Trackway 7-6 15 ft) secured in a roll is easily laid and recovered by ten men. Tanks are driven on to the mat over the longitudinal lay of the planks. Slewing can take place once the tracks are fully on the mat. Transport Class 60 Trackway component dimensions permit transport in quantity by standard trucks and easy handling at both loading and application points. Two 3-ton trucks can transport components for assembly of a trackway area measuring 183 -11-6m (60 38 ft). Comfor assembling a roadway 15-3 m (50 ft) in length and (15 ft) wide can be loaded on one 3-ton truck as loose planks or as a single pre-assembled roll or as two pre-assembled rolls each 7-65 m (25 ft) long. ponents 4-6 m Recovery Class 30 Trackway is recovered over the rear of the vehicle, being rewound on to the spool by ratchet levers.

Their essential feature is that the steel rope is winched by a multiple-groove twin pulley block, ensuring uniform speed at any point on the rope, while the rope itself is stored on a separate drum, as shown in the diagram below. The advantages of this design are that a great length of steel rope can be carried, that speed can be controlled and maintained very accurately over a wide range, and that pay-out of the rope can be powera unit Further features of the design are automatic rope laying on the drum, a free-wheel brake to prevent run-back under load, and overload protection devices; an hydraulically operated braking system is available assisted. optionally. Plumett winches are available in two ranges: the CA series, which is intended for vehicle-mounting and is driven through a power-take off from the vehicle power unit, and theTL, which is portable and completely self-contained, having its own power unit. Plumett auto-capstan winch Type CA-15 all models of Land Rover, a typical method of mounting being shown below. Apart from military purposes, this winch is being used by electricity companies for cable-stringing and laying, by firefighting and post office services, by civil engineers and many others. A brief specification for the CA-15 winch is given below; the specification for the larger and more powerful CA-45 winch is on the opposite page. This winch can be fitted to shown here with the driver's seat removed to give a better view. The principle transmitted to the steel rope by the multiple-groove pulley block A and B.

The current range Bristol for a includes diesel-driven portable plants for construction work, light industrial and heavy-duty units for workshop use, high-pressure models for laboratories and airbottle charging, garage compressors, and tractor- mounted plants. The patented Duplex airflow-cooled, two-stage design embodied in all Bristol air compressors enables the machines to deliver a greater volume of usable air power. This design uses a stepped piston and cylinder to enable both stages of compression to be carried out in any one cylinder. Efficient airflow cooling of the high-pressure area of the cylinder, together with inter-cooling carried out between stages, results in very cool-running compressors with high for a given horse Portable air compressor Model ATS, 150, volumetric efficiency. In addition, the double-acting piston does an equal amount of work on each stroke and plants run relatively free from vibration while the short stroke inherent in this design gives low piston speeds with consequent reduction in wear. Bristol Duplex air compressors, large numbers of which are serving with the armed forces of British and other NATO countries, have undergone the most stringent tests. These include subjecting the plants to ambient temperatures ranging from —52 C to -40 C with no detrimental effect to performance. Free air delivery figures are quoted for every Bristol air compressor and are guaranteed to the relevant British Standard Specifications and all international WD equivalents.

German — B The above sketches illustrate the design concept of the 5MS connector series: The basic components are a fixed unit (A), a free unit (B) and a coupler unit (C). If sealing is required on the back of a fixed unit (A), a grommet assembly is used, comprising a grommet, follower and nut (D). to combine into the unit shown at (E). For units requiring a right-angled outlet, an angled outlet set is available comprising an outlet, grommet and follower (F). This results in a fixed angle outlet (G) or in a free angle outlet (H). The outlet with its integral nut is fitted in place of the grommet nut, which then fits on the end of the outlet. Should additional support be required for the cables or any assembly, the grommet nut can be replaced by a grommet cable clamp nut (J) of the many different concepts developed by us specifically for defence applications; full details are available on The following brief details describe some Automatic coupling connector Produced for coupling the firing circuits for the Swingfire missile.

It fully meets specification FV2051 The alternator produces a self-limited maximum output of 140 A at a nominal 24 V at an ambient temperature of 80 C and can operate in an ambient temperature range from -40 C to —80 C, but up to 140 C with forced ventilation, ventilating air being drawn through ducts at an inlet temperature of 60 C. The stator laminations have been cast in position to obtain high thermal efficiency. The insulation in the stator has been designed to withstand high temperatures. The output from the stator is rectified by the main six silicon diodes mounted in the slip ring end shield. Three additional diodes in conjunction with three of the main diodes provide a rectified auxiliary dc supply for field excitation. Full-load excitation is provided at approximately 2 A field current. The alternator can be driven in either direction by a shaft or belt. Drive ratio depends on the installation but can usefully be fixed somewhere between 2:1 and 3:1 The Starter motor, type SL6 CAV motors come in two types, axial and co-axial. These high-performance have been designed to provide maximum efficiency with a long service life coupled to a reliable high duty rating. Pinion engagement occurs under reduced power and full starting torque is not applied until the pinion is completely in mesh with the flywheel ring gear.

Under- and overwing weapons attachment stations enable it to carry in this role a wide spectrum of armament, bombs, rockets and cannon. For example, in one configuration no less than 188 rocket projectiles of both 2in and 68mm calibre can be carried. The mix of weapons can be varied to suit many operational requirements, over four hundred different combinations of load being feasible. Mission change in minutes and weapons In addition to missiles for high-altitude interception, and bombs, rockets and cannon for lowlevel attack, the Lightning can also carry out high- speed reconnaissance tasks utilising a pack contained within the fuselage for camera lens protection, and with capacity for the installation of side-looking radar and other reconnaissance electronics. A change of role from interceptor to ground attack reconnaissance can be made in a minimum of or to time, frequently as armament is the little only as one hour; the change of between-sortie modification necessary. Full potential in all roles In all these roles the Lightning retains unimpaired its qualities of manoeuvrability, ease of handling and response to control which have proved it unexcelled as a weapons platform. Its high-performance radar equipment is retained in all tasks and supplemented by a light fighter sight for accurate air-to-ground target destruction and as a stand-by sight for air-to-air combat.

It also has the relevant weapon and system characteristics to meet the needs of all but the final phase of operational training. The missions which can be flown at high altitude vary from 3h subsonic to 1 Jh with high supersonic cruise, while at low 0-9. level the sortie duration is 1 £h including 20min at M cost. It significant periods to 30mm retained for all cannons are mounted in the fuselage. These are missions. Avionics As the environment in which tactical aeroplanes must operate becomes progressively more severe in terms of sophistication of ground defences, so it becomes increasingly necessary to ensure that none of the time spent at risk is wasted. Thus navigation and weapon delivery must both be upgraded. This in turn results in a greater dependence on avionics, and in an aeroplane which has minimum support every step must be taken to ensure that the necessary electronic aids are highly reliable and rugged. To meet this situation and to ensure that the navigation and attack system will continue to match the changing operational needs throughout the 1970s, the avionics system of the British 'S' and 'B' versions of Jaguar is based on an inertia platform and to be operated near the battlefields with digital computer. to accept changed The computer program can easily be new weapons and new operating conditions. Other versions are available, as developed for the French Air Force and French Navy, and these vary from the most simple All flight data standard to a high-quality doppler/gyro system. variants include Tacan radio navigation.

Weapon carriage Jaguar can carry a maximum weapon load of 4540kg (10 0001b) on one fuselage and four underwing pylons. Weapons up to a unit weight of 900kg (20001b) can be carried. This allows the carriage of: Air-to-surface guided weapons such Martel A.R. 10001b bombs free-fall or retarded 470kg bombs free-fall or retarded 5001b bombs free-fall or retarded as AS. 30 and AS. 37 250kg bombs 2501b bombs 1 25kg bombs SNEB rocket launchers Flares Drop tanks Recce pods so on. Maintainability and reliability The basic target in this area is that no more than 10-5 manhours should be necessary per flying hour, assuming the aircraft flies five one-hour sorties daily. A maintainability group worked closely with the design staffs on the assessment of the maintenance process for Jaguar, and the result of the assessment has guided the choice and installation of all systems and equipment requiring frequent attention. The requirement here is twofold. If a failure is defined as a defect which causes the mission to be abandoned or curtailed, the failure rate must be not more than 51-3 failures per 1000 flying hours an MTBF (meantime between failures) of roughly 20h. Secondly, taking a defect as a malfunction requiring unscheduled servicing, the requirement here is that the defect rate must be not more than 300 defects per 1000 flying hours. — BAC and Breguet have also shown that Sidewinder, special extra-size fuselage recce and fuel pods, and mini-gun or Vulcan gun pods could be accommodated.

To produce a light, compact and reliable high-performance engine with good handling characteristics that meets military and civil requirements, full advantage has been taken of the extensive gas turbine experience in all divisions of Rolls-Royce this engine, WG Limited. A feature of the engine is the two-spool gas generator which gives a compression ratio of 12'>:1 with wide performance characteristics ensuring low specific fuel consumption and good handling qualities without sophisticated compressor variable geometry. This provides the basis for an engine with low overall operating cost. The incorporation of a modular concept enables major engine components to be replaced without recourse to special equipment or expertise, thus facilitating repair and maintenance in the field and simplifying support logistics by return of modules (instead of complete engines) to contractors for overhaul. The problem of sea-water corrosion has been largely overcome by the use of anti-corrosive materials in the compressors and the complete absence of magnesium from the engine. Developed Wessex 3 for the Royal Navy, helicopter, the Palouste originally Mk 1 for 8 trolley is the Westland a simple, ultra- self-contained air starter unit embodying the Rolls-Royce Palouste air-bleed gas turbine. Equipped for aerial transportation by helicopter and suitable for starting many types of aircraft, the Mk 18 trolley incorporates a detachable two-wheel undercarriage equipped with rubber suspension units, and two folding barrow-type handles for ground handling. The fuel tank capacity is sufficient for up to 15 main engine light, starts. The Nimbus robust turboshaft engine particularly currently in production are the Mk 1 03/503 for the Westland Wasp and the Mk 1 05/502 shp for Westland Scout helicopters with a five-minute rating of 71 at up to ISA - 25 C at sea level and a five-minute rating of 650 shp 30 C up to 2100 m (7000ft). at ISA is a small, suitable for helicopters.

The control cabin is on top of the main cabin. The bow is fitted with a clamshell' door. The buoyancy tank, two main longitudinal walls either side of the central main cabin, superstructure and machinery and systems aft of the control cabin are common to the various versions of the craft. The forward superstructure is designed so that it can be adapted to the required variant with the minimum change. The fan intake, control cabin and other double-curvature surfaces are of glassreinforced plastics. Although new in design, the Wellington makes extensive use of components and constructional techniques employed on the Mountbatten. The engine, transmission gearboxes and propeller are identical with those of the larger craft. Directional control is achieved by the swivelling propeller pylon; the air-porting and skirtlift system are similar to that used on the Winchester and the Warden. Two small auxiliary power units provide supplies independent of the electrical main engine. Radar and other navigational aids enable the craft to operate effectively in 370 bad weather and at night.

Propulsion can be by means of water jets contained in retractable skegs. The craft will have a speed of over 110km/h (60 knots). It will be able to operate in nominal water depths with some ability to clear obstacles such as logs, sandbars and submerged booms. 20 of The accommodation can provide for a crew of some officers and men and is generally similar to that a modern fast patrol boat, with ample space in the Underwater propulsion prevents the operation of the craft overland, but there are compensating advantages. The immersed skegs enable the craft to be accurately manoeuvred in cross winds and the absence of air propellers not only reduces the noise but also leaves the upper deck clear so that there is a good all-round view from the control cabin and wide arcs of fire for the weapons.

The equipment designed for use in the low-level mode when attacking defended target areas where there is an operational requirement for delivering bombs at altitudes and speeds which offer the highest chances of defence penetration. Bomb retardation reduces the previously high risk of fragment damage to the aircraft to an insignificant level by ensuring a safe separation distance between aircraft and bomb at detonation. Only simple pilot-operated sighting equipment is is required. The system is incorporated in a new bomb tail unit with an air brake of composite design and a special environment-sensitive fuse. Construction of the tail is based on a rigid body attachment ring and centre cone enclosed by four rear-hinged skin sections which are supplemented by inter-connecting ribbon fabric to form a fast-acting and reliable air brake of consistent performance. The air-brake release has a timer-controlled function A second initiated by a lanyard at bomb release. 453kg (10001b) bombing unit for low-level unlocks a rear-mounted fuse arming vane which, in turn, permits the fuse to monitor the bomb retardation time function and to arm or sterilise the bomb, depending on correct or incorrect conditions of lanyard and operation. release a range of British bombs; use with bombs of US manufacture.

The target effectiveness in terms of hole and fragment damage is comparable with that of some shaped charges of larger diameter This head, designed for maximum blast and fragmentation effect, is a cylindrical light alloy case filled with high-explosive, detonated by a fuze No 942 screwed into its nose. The fuze incorporates a delay arming device to ensure that the rocket is at least 1 20 m (400 ft) from the aircraft before it is armed. The weight of the complete head is 1 475 kg (3 25 lb) Using the same light alloy case as the high-explosive head, the practice head is filled with an inert compound and has a nose plug to represent the fuze, the complete head weighing 1 475 kg exactly the same as the high-explosive head shown above. (3 25 lb) Attachment, as with all the rocket heads, is effected by a threaded spigot at the base of the heads — Left: 2-inch rocket with fins extended. The complete rocket the break at the middle indicates the omitted part is longer than shown here; The rocket motor shown at the left comprises four main components: the motor tube, the propellant charge, the igniter and the fin-venturi unit. A feature of the motor is the small ignition delay over the working temperature range, an essential feature when selected. A propellant charge, occupying most of the steel motor tube, has a starshaped hole through its entire length to permit a constant burning surface; its outer surface is inhibited by an ethyl-cellulose coating. Also the composition of the propellant is so designed that any variation in burning time in different temperature conditions is minimised. The igniter, placed immediately on the front end of the propellant charge, combines a 'radhaz' filter for protection against premature ignition by high-power radio and radar transmission. An obturator and a spacer ripple firing is placed over the igniter completes the assembly which is locked in the tube by a shell ring, sealed to prevent the escape of gas. The shell ring is threaded to accept the rocket head. The steel fin-venturi unit is screwed into the rear of the motor tube. Rectangular fins are provided on a collar at the rear of the unit and are normally restrained in the closed position by a strap until the rocket is loaded. When launched, the fins are opened about 1 metre in front of the launcher by springs and are then locked in the extended position. An end cap, crimped to the venturi of the rocket, provides a seal for the motor and the radhaz' protection disc. The end cap acts as a retention device for the rocket when loaded into a launcher. It also carries a firing socket which connects with a filter and the igniter. 382 Section 18: Weapons and control systems for aircraft 2-inch rocket system for air-to-air and air-to-ground attack 2-inch rocket system, now in world-wide has been designed by the British Government Research and Development Establishments to provide the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force with a simple, low-cost, versatile system coupled with a highly effective attack capability. Having an operational speed range extending from hovering to supersonic flight, the system is readily adaptable to any fixed or rotating-wing aircraft, including those which may be subjected to catapult take-off and arrested landing The For these reasons and particularly because of its superior performance, the 2-inch rocket system is now being used as an effective weapon in the air-to-air role in addition to the conventional air-to-ground configuration. For example, the BAC Lightning employs two special 2-inch rocket pods constructed integral with the aircraft fuselage as its conventional weapon system, secondary to its guided missiles. Any conventional aircraft using a simple reflector or angular velocity gunsight can employ this modern technique by fitting 2-inch multiple launchers to the underwing pylons or strong points. Two standard launcher units (the No 6 for helicopters and light aircraft, and the No 7 for most other aircraft) are also available. British use, conditions. comparison with the complex precisionbuilt machine guns and cannon, are simple, easily maintained, virtually recoil-less and able to deliver, with accuracy, a warhead capable of much greater Rockets, in destruction.

It is also supplied fitted to a main beam as described for the TER 1 1 9X mentioned above. Facilities exist to mm Stores distribution systems Type 'F auto-selectors may be used for distributing pulses around weapon carriage systems, or through the aircraft system. These designs are available for distributing pulses two, four or six ways, but other ways can be provided. The distributors may be of the type which, when supplied with a train of pulses, continues to distribute it round the system, constantly repeating the distribution pattern. Alternatively, they may be of the type which goes through one distribution sequence and then stops, irrespective of the number of additional pulses supplied to it. The basic auto-selector unit consists of a latching relay with a 5A switching capability, and an associated charging/discharge circuit which ensures that the relay is switched when the operating pulse is removed. The complete module is a welded assembly and the complete unit is encapsulated in a resin to produce a rugged construction. The auto-selector is made up from a number of basic units. Each unit is rigidly secured to a mounting and the wiring between the units formed by film system which ensures that the connections made between modules must always be identical and correct. This is achieved by fitting the printed circuit directly over the projecting wires to which it is connected. The No 5 Mk 2 fusing unit is an electromechanical device. It consists of a housing assembly, solenoid assembly, plunger and spring assembly and is used to fuse the stores when dropped from the weapon carrier. The fusing unit is electromechanically operated, and is used in conjunction with a fusing cable attached to the store. The weight of the fusing unit is 85 g (3 oz). It operates on a voltage of 21-29 V dc. The No 4 Mk 1 fusing unit is also electromechanically operated, but incorporates the fusing cable which is wire.

Data are The data converter also computes the parameter for image motion compensation within the recording sensors, using ground speed and radio altitude data. V/H Another function of the data converter is to compute elapsed distance by integrating ground speed with respect to time and thus to generate the signal demand pulse mentioned above. This is so arranged that the navigational information is placed on the records at set distance intervals. Thus on the radar record the navigational data appear every one nautical mile, while on the line scan record they appear every \ and 4 miles. kept small by the use of advanced elecsuch as integrated circuits, multi-layer printed circuit boards and sub-miniature wire-wrapped connectors.

Auto-stabilisation is available acting on the yaw and pitch axes and, when selected at high speed, frees the pilot from the need for constant minor corrections to attitude; it also makes the is fully aircraft a more stable weapons platform. Changes in the aircraft's attitude are sensed by its inertial platform and corrections are fed to the power controls in the form of electrical signals. A key factor of the power controls is the way in which a wide range of system components has been combined in single integrated actuator packages. This produces a simple system with a minimum of pipework and wiring, a single access door for each power control unit, faster trouble shooting and low battle vulnerability.

Filtration is a specialist branch of aircraft engineering which has a considerable effect on an aircraft's economy and reliability in service. The need for adequate filtration extends to the ground rigs used to service hydraulic equipment and a range of filters available for this purpose. The increasing complexity hydraulic systems used in armoured fighting vehicles and other military equipment is providing a new range of applications for Fairey's service- proved filtration is against substances formed by decomposition of fluid. Fairey's choice of filter media covers the requirements of the five principal filter locations: 1. Fine filtration down to 15 micron in the highpressure delivery line immediately downstream of the pump for general system protection. 2. Tubular or disc-type filters in the 75 to 200 micron range at the inlet to each critical component as a protection against gross contamination. 3.

From 1941, In combustion research we engineer, organise and administer design and development of combustion equipment for the latest engines in both supersonic and ultra-lightweight fields. Together with many other projects, very small annular combustion chambers have been designed for gas turbine starters and auxiliary power units. To meet the demands on the combustion system for supersonic engines, yet still retaining high combustion efficiencies over a wide range of operating conditions, exceptional light-up performance and an acceptable life of components operating at considerably elevated temperatures have greatly increased the The severity of the problems normally encountered. thermal and vibratory stresses in the flame tube have also increased as the result of the high pressures and temperatures involved and it has been necessary to introduce new concepts of flame tube construction Lucas has understood and discharged these to adapt alloys.

As an alternative to the variable-stroke piston pump and for engines requiring a simple high-speed pump, gear-type units are available. Combustion systems Combustion systems created by precision fabrication can be divided into three main categories, the components of which are welded and/or brazed on assembly. These are (a) details from sheet metal; (b) a combination of sheet metal and machined details; and (c) machined details only. Long experience has shown that it is only by meticulous care, beginning with the selection of the raw material itself, that assemblies of high technical quality and accuracy can be consistently produced.

GQ Personnel parachutes The new GQ 6-7 m (22 ft) shaped diameter, Supply-dropping parachutes Six overseas forces have ordered the new GQ Unicross expendable/optionally re-usable supply-dropping parachute assembly which is undergoing trials with British static line- operated fully steerable parachute will be in service with British troops this year. It was developed in conjunction with the British Ministry of Technology and its design permits, for the first time, paratroops and para-medic teams to avoid ground obstacles as they land. The new parachute also uses a new three-point hook and D-ring fastening harness incorporating special shoulder release fittings. These allow the canopy to be collapsed immediately on landing so that the paratrooper is not dragged along prior to releasing his harness. Special D-rings are also fitted to the harness attaching the reserve parachute and the CSPEP (carry straps, personal equipment parachutist). Both these items are products. Another new product is the synthetic QF/QD seat-type parachute assembly, which was developed from the seat-type Mk 10 assembly. This new parachute has been ordered by the Finnish Air Force. Synthetic materials replace canvas and flax used for the Mk 10 and the harness has been re-designed to permit fitment of the latest Capewell '1 h shot' shoulder canopy releases. These releases permit the airman to shed his harness quickly, because the canopy can be collapsed immediately on landing. The advantages of this new parachute, compared with the Mk 10, are: 1 because of the use of synthetic materials throughout, the equipment has a much longer useful life 2 the equipment is more comfortable to wear because the harness can be adjusted more easily divestment is quick and simple by merely releasing 3 the snap hooks 4 even if the parachutist is injured he can activate the Capewell shoulder canopy release to prevent being dragged along after landing 5 the materials are impervious to bacteria and fungal attack, do not rot after immersion in water forces. method The of canopy available offer a cheap lowering vital supplies.

RFD-GQ LIMITED Godalming, Surrey, England Telephone: Godalming 4122 Cables: Airships Godalming Telex: 85233 425 Section 20: Aircraft equipment and instruments Automatic release for parachutes The Hitefinder automatic parachute release Type D/1 Mk 2 is designed to open a free-fall parachute in the event of the user failing to pull the ripcord handle at or above the minimum safe opening height. Pre-setting of the Hitefinder to operate at a selected height is a straightforward operation requiring the adjustment of one dial graduated in millibars. The presetting operation is done in conjunction with a special calculator provided with the instrument and the only information required by the user is the ground level pressure prevailing at the DZ (dropping zone). Having registered the DZ pressure reading on the calculator, the pressure equivalent to the required parachute opening height can be quickly determined, without further adjustment of the calculator, and set up on the dial of the Hitefinder. Before jumping, the parachutist withdraws an arming pin, either manually or by static line, to enable the Hitefinder to operate at the pre-set pressure. The operating sequence is initiated during descent by an aneroid capsule which progressively contracts because of increasing atmospheric pressure. At a specific height above the operating height the aneroid capsule collapses to a point where a time delay mechanism powered by a compression spring is freed. At the termination of the time delay, the compression spring is released to provide the motive power by which means the rip pins are withdrawn and the parachute is opened. The time delay is provided to ensure that when a jump is made at or below the height at which the Hitefinder is set to operate, the parachutist is well clear of the aircraft before the canopy deploys. The Hitefinder can also be embodied in non-man-carrying parachute systems and is particularly ideal for use where delayed opening of a canopy at a specific height above ground level is required. Specification Weight and dimensions Limits of accuracy Every Hitefinder is extensively tested under laboratory conditions to ensure that each instrument gives a standard of accuracy within the following range: 15m (50ft) Repeatability: Total weight: 680 g (24 oz) Total volume: 270 cm' (1 6 5 in 3 ) (7-5 in) Overall length: 1 90 Overall width: 76 in) (3 Overall depth: 38 (1 -5 in) Length of case: mm mm mm 100 mm (4 C to -10 C -30 C in) Operating range The Hitefinder can be adjusted by the user to effect deployment of a parachute above any DZ situated between 213 m (700 ft) below sea level and 4270 m (1 4 000 ft) above sea level (ICAN Standard Atmosphere conditions prevailing) Time delay A choice of fixed time delay periods of from 30 to 600 sec is available If instruments can be re-calibrated to alternative settings by the manufacturer.

The artificial horizon FH.1 4 provides information of the movements of an aircraft, in pitch and roll, by means of a spherical presentation. The horizon gyro FH.15, which is otherwise identical with the FH.14, differs only in that, in addition, it is equipped with toroidal potentiometers on the pitch and roll axes. Aircraft attitude is displayed by the position of a two-colour spherically shaped drum relative to a fixed symbol in the centre of the instrument glass. The division of the colours blue sky/black ground extending across the face of the instrument represents the true horizon. The drum carries a perspective display in the 'ground area' in one design, the length of the pitch reference lines increasing with pitch angle. Thus, at extreme pitch attitudes, when the horizon reference line may be out of sight, the pitch reference lines define the roll plane. A roll indicator is incorporated in either the top or bottom half of the presentation. Electrical means are used to erect, and maintain erect, the gyroscope to the vertical. The pitch-bank system of monitoring during turns is incorporated. Arrangements are also made whereby the operation of an external push switch increases the erection rate to approximately 30 times its normal value. Operation of this switch in unaccelerated flight erects the gyro rapidly to the vertical position from any attitude.

The system operates on the triangulation principle in which the transmitter scanner emits a modulated light beam. The receiver, vertically aligned and tuned to the light beam modulation frequency, feeds the cloud signal to a phase-sensing circuit in the recorder. The recorder contains a chart mechanism, in which the pen is deflected in synchronism with the transmitter scanner motion. Transmitter The transmitter mm unit contains a 406 (16 in) parabolic searchlight mirror producing a beam of 2 divergence, with a 200 quartz iodine projector lamp as the light source. Under normal operating conditions the minimum lamp life is 800 hours. A revolving shutter disc, driven by a synchronous motor, is placed between the lamp and the mirror to modulate the light at a constant frequency of 900 Hz. A photocell picks up from the mirror a 900 Hz reference signal which is amplified and fed to the recorder.
