AMMUNITION HANDLING SYSTEM DESIGN & INTEGRATION
Full system design, development, test, integration, support and full-rate production
Nobles Worldwide is uniquely qualified to partner with prime contractors and lead system integrators to manage the entire ammunition handling system effort from initial design through full-rate production. After working hand-in-hand with industry partners and U.S. and foreign militaries on dozens of customized turret projects, Nobles understands the importance and challenges associated with optimizing feed paths, within a congested turret, in order to create the most efficient flow of ammunition. Nobles routinely works with restricted space claims within the turret and neatly routes ammunition to ensure the utmost efficiency, quality and reliability of its flow from the source to the gun.
With test and integration benches for multiple medium caliber cannons that can be configured to scale, Nobles can design, integrate and test, prior to customer live fire qualification, saving time and money, during an expensive and complex process. Nobles’ support continues through qualification, as an integral partner in the feedback loop, making design changes as required, and ensuring the feed system is of the highest functionality within schedule and under budget.
Nobles has designed custom ammunition handling systems for all NATO small and medium caliber weapons. Nobles product portfolio and design capability spans the entire range of ammunition handling to include:
Linked and linkless ammunition magazines
De-linking and other gun-end adapters
Flexible and rigid, linked and linkless, feeding chutes
Flexible, rigid and hybrid link ejection chutes
Ammunition feed throats and forwarders for loading
