Paper Title - Development of Rocket Ignition System using PLC
This paper presented the controller design of the rocket ignition system applied to the prototype of Multiple
Launch Rocket System (MLRS) to improve the operating performance, reliability and safety. The rocket ignition system was
developed using Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), mainly including the communication, state, and ignition modules.
In order to ensure the reliability and safety of ignition, the ignition protection and a rocket detection circuits in the launch
tube were designed to prevent unexpected ignition and improve the reliability of the system. The experiment result of the
operation was indicated that the ignition system met both operation and safety requirements. In case of preventing false
ignition and improving the reliability of the system, it is recommended to conduct a comprehensive inspection of the ignition
device before operating the system. The investigation includes checking signal lines and connectors to make sure that the
connection is reliable and also checking impedance loop resistances to make sure that it is in normal range, In order to ensure
the reliable operation of the system.
