Abstract : The results are presented of an investigation to determine the dynamic and static stability of the Aerobee 150A. Damping moment coefficients were obtained in the NOL Supersonic Tunnel Number 1 at Mach numbers 2.53, 3.50 and 4.85. Static aerodynamic force and moment coefficients were obtained as functions of angle of attack, angle of sideslip, and angle of roll over the same Mach number range and, in addition, at a Mach number of 6.80 in Hypersonic Tunnel Number 4.
