Application: High Frequency Jamming Antenna Springs
Problem: The original springs were breaking inside their bases when placed under certain operational stresses.
The MWI Solution:
- Redesigned the spring to reduce hoop stress
- Developed a new profile for the base
- Determined the optimum inside diameter for the new reduced coil ends
Reduced the fail rate of the overall assembly, which lowers maintenance expenses and, more importantly in this application, could save lives.
