  • Patent number: 5327809
    Abstract: The invention provides a canister which holds two missiles, which is the same size as prior art canisters that held a single missile. The inventive canister provides improved structural strength, simpler operation for the closure and electronics and an improved shock isolation system. The improved structure uses tubes and a lattice structure. The closure is hinged and uses gravity or the missile blast to complete closing. The electronics uses a flip flop switch. The shock isolation system utilizes urethane pads with apertures or air pockets and a silicon coating.
