Abstract:

Flight tests were conducted which included a total of 49 simulated refueling contacts by 5 different types of Navy aircraft. During these contacts, the store demonstrated excellent features of formating position and response characteristics, and results of the evaluation appear to be very favorable. Additional activities during the month of April have consisted of continued development of the prototype store, including detail design structural analysis, procurement, tooling, fabrication, flutter investigation and detail compatibility analysis.
