Title
(EN) LOW INERTIA ROLLING CONTROL ACTUATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'ACTIONNEMENT DE CONTRÔLE DE ROULIS À FAIBLE INERTIE
Abstract
(EN)
The system and method of a low inertia, rolling control actuation system (CAS) for a projectile. A CAS having only two canards provides reduced cost and quicker reaction times. In some cases one or more bearings can intermittently decouple the CAS from the projectile and in some cases with the use of a brake. If there are two bearings on either side of the CAS, the front and/or back of the projectile can be decoupled to provide even quicker response times. The front of the projectile may have a warhead and additional sensors or imagers. The rear of the projectile may contain a booster or the like.
(FR)
L'invention concerne le système et le procédé d'un système d'actionnement de contrôle (CAS) de roulis à faible inertie pour un projectile. Un CAS ayant seulement deux canards fournit un coût réduit et des temps de réaction plus rapides. Dans certains cas, un ou plusieurs paliers peuvent par intermittence découpler le CAS du projectile et, dans certains cas, à l'aide d'un frein. S'il y a deux paliers de part et d'autre du CAS, l'avant et/ou l'arrière du projectile peuvent être découplés pour fournir des temps de réponse encore plus rapides. L'avant du projectile peut avoir une ogive et des capteurs ou imageurs supplémentaires. L'arrière du projectile peut contenir un propulseur d'appoint ou analogue.
