A deployment mechanism in which a member 2 deploys from a spinning body 1 by centrifugal force is described. A friction arm 6 exerts a retarding torque on the root 4 of member 2 and prevents the member from overshooting its deployed position. The friction arm 6 applies a retarding torque which is proportional to the spin rate of the missile and keeps the resultant deployment torque to within pre-determined limits. The mechanism automatically compensates for a wide range of spin rates.
A deployment system for deploying a member from a spinning body, said system comprising; a deployable member having a root portion rotatably mounted on said spinning body to allow rotation of said deployable member from a stowed position to a deployed position under centrifugal force; said system further comprising retarding means, movable under centrifugal force to apply a spin-rate dependent friction force retarding deployment of said deployable member throughout at least a major portion of the movement of said deployable member to its deployed positio...
