Abstract : The Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division, Patuxent River, is currently the Navy's lead facility for Precipitation Static testing of aircraft. It has been involved extensively with the design and production of standard Precipitation Static test methods and equipment. As part of tasking given by the Naval Air Systems Command, these methods are to be presented to other Navy facilities to provide additional test capability and overall fleet awareness of Precipitation Static. Further, this will provide standard procedures and equipment for Precipitation Static testing of aircraft Navy-wide. This paper presents an overview of the Precipitation Static test methods and equipment to be standardized, as well as the current plans to distribute these to Navy facilities. Particular attention will be paid to test methodology, design of standard test equipment, and plans for distribution and training.
