Title
(EN) DEVICE FOR SUPPORTING A PAYLOAD IN A LAUNCH VEHICLE OF SAID PAYLOAD
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE SUPPORT D'UNE CHARGE UTILE DANS UN LANCEUR DE LADITE CHARGE UTILE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention concerns a launch vehicle comprising a shroud (1a, 5a) supporting auxiliary propellers (2, 3) applying in operation excess flow of stresses to the shroud (1a, 5a), said device comprising means for coupling the payload (4) with the launch vehicle shroud. The invention is characterised in that the coupling means are designed to ensure a mechanical coupling between the payload (4) and the shroud along the direction of the launch vehicle longitudinal axis (X), and to cause them to be disengaged along radial and tangential directions. The invention is useful for neutralizing the effects on the payload of excess stresses applied on the launch vehicle shroud by the auxiliary propellers (2, 3).
(FR)
Le lanceur comprend une enveloppe (1a, 5a) supportant des propulseurs auxiliaires (2, 3) appliquant en fonctionnement des surflux d'efforts à l'enveloppe (1a, 5a), ledit dispositif comportant des moyens de liaison de la charge utile (4) à l'enveloppe du lanceur. Suivant l'invention, les moyens de liaison sont conçus pour assurer un couplage mécanique de la charge (4) et de l'enveloppe suivant la direction de l'axe longitudinal (X) du lanceur, et un découplage de ceux-ci suivant les directions radiales et tangentielles. Application à la neutralisation des effets, sur la charge utile, des surflux d'efforts appliqués à l'enveloppe du lanceur par les propulseurs auxiliaires (2, 3).
