Systima Multiple Missile Common Launch Tube Successful Flight Demonstration

Systima Technologies has recently completed a successful flight test validating 2 new launch tube designs each containing multiple munitions. The flight test was coordinated and executed by Systima featuring the primary aircraft and a close formation chase plane to capture the separation characteristics of the ejected munitions. This new breed of launch tubes provide increased load-out for sequential or rapid, ripple firing of individual precision guided miniature munitions. Several  key technologies have been incorporated to allow for the communication to and safety requirements associated with housing multiple items within a single launch tube.
