March 9th (via Zoom). Arthur Kearse: Technical Aspects of the Dambusters raid.

The talk covers the Upkeep weapon system development process and operational employment. It includes discussion of target defeat and the use of scaling and similarity to analyse weapon effects. The importance of spin in the weapon concept is explained, as are the problems that this introduces. It is hoped that Arthur will mention Farnborough’s involvement, and the strategic implications.
