Mass., Are making underwater searches easier in safer. Filmed in color off the Bermuda coast by the 13k5lh photo so detachment 4, based at Westover fab mass the subs were fashioned out of two surplus fuel tanks. To make the film More realistic a castoffs tank was punctured and sent to the Bottom. The script indicated that the tank became separated from its aircraft by an undetermined cause. Hence it must be located and recovered in order to pinpoint the reason for the the two open cockpit two seater subs were towed into position by a 40-foot army diesel powered boat. The subs occupants were dressed in diving suits helmets mittens flippers and equipped with breath ing tanks. Still attached to the two lines the subs Dove beneath the water. While one sub searched for the sunken plane part an airman with a movie camera enclosed in a watertight ease in the other sub was shooting the entire sequence. Although it required Only a Short time for the searching sub to secure the damaged tank to lines and raise it to the surface the cameramen and participants worked for hours without setup in order to take advantage of favourable Light twist gyrations also shake missile men Redstone Arsenal Ala. Special the twist in nothing new to army mis is Leinan. They have been devising methods to prevent similar in missiles for years. Liko human dancers missile components Atso shake More violently at different noise Levels engineers at the army ordnance missile come Tom tire constantly looking for better ways of keeping Vilula parts of the stable during periods of increased Gravity loading either during ground transport or free flight. The human body has u resonant frequency a Peak of response to vibration. If that certain fre Quency is reached a id maintained it can be literally shaken to pieces. It is the same with missiles. Vibration can damage a missile while it is being runs ported on the ground is Well is while the missile is moving under its own Power. A missile component my react More violently to a Low rate of vibration than to a High one. Testing to determine what it can take is done in two major ways either by vibrating the part at resonant frequencies or by using magnetic tape recordings to simulate the whole Range of vibration. Most of the Tomc testing is done by the first method. One of the Tomc test laboratories at Redston Arsenal contains a variety of shakers to give missile components a rough ride. With the formal title of Electrodynamic Vibrator these machines can produce a vibrating Force anywhere from five pounds to 25,000 pounds of Force. Since the missile components Are mounted in steel supports like a Cradle the shaking machine is a figurative hand that rocks the a ble to get my planes Bajek refuel Saiid Mantl the up 6kesm$nt which there because everything and done right it col Fabrian Mandy the Squadron we have All the concentrate ground time after he said.
