  • US Patent:
    7616326, Nov 10, 2009
  • Filed:
    Jun 28, 2007
  • Appl. No.:
    11/770666
  • Inventors:

  • International Classification:
    G01B 11/14
    G01B 11/26
    G01C 1/00
  • US Classification:
    356614, 356138
  • Abstract:
    A system for determining the longitudinal position of a displaceable element positioned between two substantially orthogonally laterally opposing displacement sensors measures a distance from each displacement sensor to the displaceable element. The displaceable element has a tapered thickness along its length. A change in the longitudinal position of the displaceable element causes the proximity sensors to each detect their distance to the displaceable element, which distances then correspond directly to the local thickness and thus the longitudinal position of the displaceable element. The system calculates the position of the displaceable element. The system can easily factor out errors in measured lateral proximity position of the displaceable element, since an erroneous proximity to one sensor is equal and opposite to an erroneous proximity to the other.

  • Filed:
    Dec 18, 2008
  • Appl. No.:
    12/337919
  • Inventors:
    Steven R. Wassom - Smithfield UT,
    Morgan Davidson - River Heights UT,
    Richard Sanders - Smithfield UT,
  • Assignee:
    UTAH STATE UNIVERSITY RESEARCH FOUNDATION - North Logan UT
  • International Classification:
    B60L 7/00
  • US Classification:
    188164
  • Abstract:
    An apparatus for securing movable elements of a multiple-axis drive mechanism with respect to the fixed base thereof during launch to prevent damage while unpowered. Mating surfaces of the lock secure the mechanism about all three axes of motion. Thus, the drives need to be only sufficiently designed to break free one element of the launch lock from the other element. Tapered or other guiding surfaces of the two elements of the launch lock make it self-aligning, such that mating surfaces are guided together once placed in sufficiently close proximity.

  • Filed:
    Jan 24, 2012
  • Appl. No.:
    13/357336
  • Inventors:
    Bryan Bingham - Providence UT,

  • International Classification:
    G01M 1/00
  • US Classification:
    73 6508
  • Abstract:
    A method and apparatus for determining the mass moment of inertia of a given object is disclosed, The apparatus is a mass moment of inertia platform whereon objects to be measured can be placed. The platform uses flex pivots as torsional springs and the method ensures the flex pivots are procured and assembled in such a way so as to limit flex pivot misalignment systemic errors thereby resulting in a highly accurate and low-cost apparatus for measuring the mass moment of inertia.

  • Filed:
    Oct 12, 1993
  • Appl. No.:
    8/134911
  • Inventors:
    Steven R. Wassom - Smithfield UT

  • Assignee:
    Thiokol Corporation - Odgen UT
  • International Classification:
    F42B 1000
  • US Classification:
    244 322
  • Abstract:
    A control system for use in missiles and other projectiles which provides pitch, yaw and roll control. The control system includes two opposing pairs of flaps configured in the aft end of the missile case. Each flap is attached for rotation about its leading edge. Prior to actuation, the flaps conform to the exterior surface of the missile. Upon actuation, the flaps extend into the airstream to induce aerodynamic forces. The axis of rotation of each flap is positioned at an oblique angle to the radial plane of the missile.

  • US Patent:
    48673935, Sep 19, 1989
  • Filed:
    Aug 17, 1988
  • Appl. No.:
    7/233069
  • Inventors:
    Lawrence C. Faupell - Logan UT
    Steven R. Wassom - Smithfield UT
  • Assignee:
    Morton Thiokol, Inc. - Chicago IL
  • International Classification:
    F42B 15027
    F42B 15033
  • US Classification:
    244 322
  • Abstract:
    A tactical pulsed missile with a movable nozzle for thrust vector control and movable aerofins to provide greater maneuverability and flexibility. The first pulse is fired at launch and the later pulses are fired as needed whereby steerage may be provided by thrust vector control during the firing of the pulses. When none of the pulses are firing, steerage may be provided by the movable aerofins. The missile is provided with separate small electromechanical actuators for each of the aerofins and each of the movable nozzle axes which are preferably placed closely adjacent the respective aerofins and nozzle so that the weight and space of various linkages may be eliminated. The motors are provided with a source of high voltage so that their size may be reduced whereby they burn up when the high voltage is applied for a short period of time but not before their task has been achieved. The fin span is reduced to less than about four inches to enable the packaging of a greater number of such tactical missiles in the payload bay of an airplane. A flexible bearing may be provided between the nozzle and nozzle housing.
  • Vectorable Nozzle Having Jet Vanes

  • US Patent:
    55117457, Apr 30, 1996
  • Filed:
    Dec 30, 1994
  • Appl. No.:
    8/366848
  • Inventors:
    Lawrence C. Faupell - North Logan UT
    Steven R. Wassom - Smithfield UT
    Joseph J. Kliger - North Ogden UT
  • Assignee:
    Thiokol Corporation - Ogden UT
  • International Classification:
    F02K 990
    F02K 984
    F42B 1066
  • US Classification:
    244 322
  • Abstract:
    A system for providing pitch, yaw, and roll control during the flight of a rocket-propelled vehicle combines a vectorable nozzle with jet vanes. The vectorable nozzle provides yaw and pitch control, while the jet vanes provide roll control. Anti-rotation pins extend from the vehicle housing into longitudinal slots within the vectorable nozzle to allow vectoring movements and prevent rotation of the nozzle. The jet vanes are rotatably mounted on shafts within the nozzle exit cone to receive and guide combustion products passing through the nozzle. The jet vanes may be jettisoned after an initial high-angle-of-attack maneuver is completed and the vehicle gains speed, after which roll control is provided by aerodynamic fins. The jet vanes may also be formed of material which erodes after the initial maneuver, thereby reducing the loss of thrust caused by the jet vanes.
