"The present invention relates to missile launching systems and more particularly to that type which is adapted for and designed to be used on shipboard and provided with a three-axis stabilized launcher. However, it is to be understood that the invention may be practiced other than on shipboard such as at stationary launcher sites. The launching system of the present invention is particularly suitable for the launching of guided missiles, rocket and similar self-powered devices."
The patent act of 1790 established the rules for submitting a patent application. Each application had to be submitted with specifications, a patent drawing, and if possible a model of the invention. Eventually, models were no longer required.
