Our family of shock isolated launchers support pyrotechnic jettison of expendables into the airstream. These launchers were specifically designed to support tethered expendables with care to protect the tether. Launchers can be built to accommodate several configurations (1 to 4 expendables have been built and qualified to date).
Launchers support a family of magazines and incorporate a carrier qualified blind-mate high voltage and fiber optic connector. Launchers pass dozens of discrete, several high voltage and one optical fiber connection per expendable location. Launchers support two pyrotechnic cartridge types and are shock isolated to protect the payload electronics from high frequency vibration.
