Title
(EN) MUNITIONS RACK WITH STRUCTURAL ELEMENT AND INSERTABLE EJECTORS
(FR) SUPPORT DE MUNITIONS AVEC ÉLÉMENT STRUCTURAL ET ÉJECTEURS POUVANT ÊTRE INSÉRÉS
Abstract
(EN)
A munitions rack includes a munitions rack structure that houses multiple compact ejectors. The structure includes a pair of internal longitudinal ribs, inboard of a pair of external longitudinal ribs. A spine of the munitions rack structure links all the ribs, and the munitions rack structure may be formed out of a single piece of material. The ribs define a pair of side recesses on the port and starboard sides of the bomb, which each may be further subdivided into a forward pocket and an aft pocket. Removable ejectors are located in the pockets. The ejectors may receive pressurized gas from pressurized gas source(s) located outside of the ejectors. The ejectors may each have multiple forward pistons and multiple aft pistons. The ejectors may include pitch control valving to control the relative amounts of pressurized gas sent to the forward piston(s) and aft piston(s).
(FR)
Un support de munitions comprend une structure de support de munitions qui abrite de multiples éjecteurs compacts. La structure comprend une paire de nervures longitudinales internes, à l'intérieur d'une paire de nervures longitudinales externes. Un dos de la structure de support de munitions relie toutes les nervures, et la structure de support de munitions peut être formée à partir d'un seul morceau de matériau. Les nervures définissent une paire d'évidements latéraux sur les côtés bâbord et tribord de la bombe, chacun pouvant être en outre subdivisé en une cavité avant et une cavité arrière. Des éjecteurs amovibles sont situés dans les cavités. Les éjecteurs peuvent recevoir du gaz sous pression provenant d'une ou plusieurs sources de gaz sous pression situées. à l'extérieur des éjecteurs. Les éjecteurs peuvent chacun avoir de multiples pistons avant et de multiples pistons arrière. Les éjecteurs peuvent comprendre une soupape de commande de pas pour commander les quantités relatives de gaz sous pression envoyé au ou aux pistons avant et au ou aux pistons arrière.
