Abstract:

Aerobee NB3.104 NRL-71 was launched by Naval Ordnance Missile Test Facility personnel, White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. Meteorological data used in conjunction with theoretical calculations to predict rocket impact are presented. Wind data for the first 2,000 feet above the surface were obtained from a Double-Theodolite Wind Velocity Computer System. Temperature, pressure, and humidity data, along with upper wi d data from 2,000 to approximately 100,000 feet above the surface, were obtained from standard rawinsonde operations. Mean wind component values in each ballistic zone were determined from vertical cross sections by the equal-area method. Author
