Abstract : Design has progressed in the layout and detailing of systems based on Wind Tunnel Test Results. Releases have been made for fabrication and extra design effort was continued in the Flight Control System. Weight Control program effort was continued in the face of slight increases. Reduction of Wind Tunnel data from the 1/6 scale, 1/7 scale, and others models progressed. Test preparations for continued Wind Tunnel model tests were made. The 1/3 scale test has just entered the initial phase. Acoustic Noise Tests were accomplished during the period, which indicated additional testing was necessary. Test Specimen configuration and Test Requirements are being prepared for these continued tests.
