Abstract : An engineering flight evaluation to provide an Airworthiness Certification of the OV-1C airplane equipped with QRC-160-1 Electronic Countermeasure (ECM) was conducted by the U.S. Army Aviation Test Activity (USAATA) at Edwards Air Force Base, California. A total of 35 flight hours was flown during this evaluation between 4 January 1964 and 24 January 1964. The QRC-160-1 is an ECM External Store weighing 195 pounds used for the protection of aircraft. For this test, the installation was mounted at the drop tank station on the left wing of the OV-1C. The QRC-160-1 can be employed with safety when mounted on the left wing of the OV-1C with either a full or an empty 150-gallon drop tank mounted on the right wing provided that a restricted flight envelope is observed.
