zero-length launching


zero-length launching
A technique in which the vehicle is free as soon as it is launched from the aircraft launcher or surface launcher. Aircraft rockets are normally not a zero-length launch, as they accelerate within the tube or along the rail but would be zero-length if they were hung on clips. A surface launch is a zero-launch if the thrust away is by a rocket boost motor whose vertical component is greater than the weight.
