    This book (503 p.) provides complete science projects, modern enginnering and technology of launchers design.

    All development aspects of launcher, often neglected rocket system component, are considered, in this five-part book

    First part considers all launcher main parameters, particularly system efficency and procedures determining one.

    Second part contains basic forces utilizing launching theory, particularly at launcher firing, as well as dynamic loadings, including
    random forces influences.
    Launcher disturbance and random forces equations are also presented. Several different solutions of existing launchers are
    analyzed and presented.
    Special attention is given to Multiple Launching Rocket System strengthness and stability, i.e. system orientation maintaining of
    firing parameters in purpose of minimization of launcher disturbance during every successive firing sequence.
    MLR System oscillation given case study as particularly important in purpose of launcher disturbance angle and angular velocity

    Third part includes methods of basic launcher project parameters defining. This is the most important part of project, because errors made in this part of project
    have fundamental influence in following work generating problems difficult to be solved.
    Launcher influence on rocket leaving velocity increasing as much as possible. New solutions resolving this problem are given.
    Rocket movement in launcher are shown in a certain number of variants with respectively consideration of good and bad properties.
    There are given procedures of launcher tubes number determination, rocket parameters during leaving tube, rocket rotation inside launching tube, opened or
    closed launching tube, tube mechanisms, etc.
    Elevation and direction launcher tubes movement, as well as launcher leveling – automatic, semiautomatic and manual, are detailly given. Importance and
    procedures of selfbreaking and breaking of launcher mechanisms are emphasized.
    The book also presents fire correction data subsystem based on TV corrector recordings the end of rocket motor burning.
    Automatic and semiautomatic launcher loading solutions are given.
    Design solutions of mechanisms enabling firing from unprepared launching positions are given.
    All operations automatization procedures are given, in purpose of human operator role minimizing.
    On-launcher fire control system, devices and procedures that enable to command post both ways connection and automatic command transfer, are given.
    For ground troops vehicle mounted launchers, consequent performances and adaptations of vehicles are presented.
    Basic performances for underground, submarine and airborne launchers are given, too.

    Part four presents launcher construction solutions according to different factors: materials, parts and structures design, tolerances, material surface
    protection, technological procedures, etc, emphasizing standardization and unification.
    As very important launcher construction part, there are given tests during launcher development and production phases according to all expected
    conditions of use in different environment.
    In the end of part four are given chapters about reliability and cost indifferent launcher design and manufactoring phases.

    Part five contains overview presentations of strategic launchers of all types. Different terrain properties where launcher can be positioned are given in

    This book is intended for students and engineers engaged in rocket armament R&D.
