Depressing the button allows the Emergency Drogue Deploy relay to be energized and the Drogue Chute Mortar squibs to be fired deploying the Drogue Chute and dispersing the chaff. If the Green Main Deploy telelight fails to illuminate, failure of the Main Chute deployment may be detected by a lack of opening.shock, a visual check and no decrease in rate of descent. Upon determining that the Main Chute has not deployed, operating the Main Deploy Pull Ring energizes the Emergency Main...

Pppopt sedr 104 * revised_ AAnnci relay. While the periscope is retracting, 2k volts d-c is applied through an attenuator in package C to both commutators. Input level to the commutators is approximately three volts. 13-59- INSTRUMENTATION CONTROL SYSTEM 13-60. Coding The signals applied to the HF and LF Commutators are sampled once every 0.80 seconds. Commutator outputs are square wave pulses with amplitude between -1 and +3 volts. These pulses are applied to voltage controlled oscillators and...

PITCH IS DEFINED AS THE ROTATION OF THE CAPSULE ABOUT ITS X-AXIS THE PITCH ANGLE IS ZERO DEGREES 0 WHEN THE Z-AXIS LIES IN A HORIZONTAL PLANE. USING THEASTRONAUTS RIGHT SIDE ASA REFERENCE, POSITIVE PITCH IS ACHIEVED BY COUNTERCLOCKWISE ROTATION FROM THE ZERO DEGREE 0 PLANE. THE RATE OF THIS ROTATION IS THE CAPSULE PITCH RATE AND IS POSITIVE IN THE DIRECTION SHOWN AS ARE THE CONTROL MOVEMENTS WHICH CAUSE IT. THE CONTROL HANDLE MOVES TOWARD THE ASTRONAUT AND THE POSITIVE PITO REACTION JET FIRES....
