Passive lateral vibration isolation system for a spacecraft launch vehicle

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #6012680.

A lateral acceleration force isolator that forms a part of an attachment fitting for a payload, such as a spacecraft or satellite, and launch vehicle assembly. An upper portion of the isolator is designed to be attached to the payload and a lower portion is designed to be attached to a launch vehicle. Flexures are positioned in an array between the upper and lower portions to accommodate lateral displacement in the payload attachment fitting, thereby isolating lateral acceleration forces.
