Abstract:

The objective of this program is to obtain data concerning physical phenomena occurring during the flight of ballistic missiles with the object of seeking explanations of these phenomena. The reasons for wishing to make measurements in Australia are a the trajectory of Black Knight provides a unique opportunity of tracking from launch to impact from one location b the Black Knight research program will include experiments with a variety of head materials and flight conditions not normally available on American missile ranges and c the trials conditions mandatory for Black Knight and other suitable firings in Australia provide better opportunity for optical observation than do firings on American ranges.
