Abstract

Two solenoid controlled ball valves are employed in such a way that dual w rate control is provided to a missile control vane actuator. The result is the superior performance of an open center valve actuator over that of a closed center valve actuator with gas consumption savings approaching that of the closed center valve design and having the same complexity as a closed center design.
