14. PRECISE POSITIONING SHOCK ISOLATORS

Conventional approaches to the shock isolation of delicate systems often involve the use of low frequency shock mountings. This type of mounting is not usable on systems where precise alignment must be maintained over a long period of time. This paper describes a new type of isolator which combines excellent attenuation with the ability to precisely maintain system alignment in the pre and post shock environment. This new shock absorber acts as a rigid link under normal conditions. Then, when a shock occurs, it strokes in both tension and compression with damping in both directions. After things calm down the shock returns precisely to its original length. Computer simulation and test results are included.
