Project Description

Support relative to the Launch Test Facility (LTF), Jacobs Technology is requesting the specialized science and engineering services of DRI. The LTF program is comprised of both government and private sector parties responsible for the conceptual design, engineering, construction, and operation of a large remote site to be utilized as a test bed for testing weapons systems which are ejected from a launch tube. The facility, in addition to providing launch capabilities, will also provide an arrestment system capable of catching the weapons to allow each test item to be used for multiple tests. DRI provides science and engineering support relative to geographic and environmental evaluation.
