Abstract:

A summary is presented of the investigations conducted in the Naval Ordnance Laboratorys Supersonic Tunnel No. 1 on several of the Navys Lazy Dog weapon configurations. Lazy Dog is a free-fall missile employing a 50 caliber bullet or its core as the basic aerodynamic body. Static stability tests were conducted on six configurations over a Mach number range from 0.3 to 1.3. Dynamic stability tests were made using the more promising configurations. In addition to these tests, ballistics range firings were conducted. As a consequence of the information obtained in this investigation, two alternate configurations have been proposed.
