The purpose of the tests performed in the high speed wind tunnel was to obtain force data to evaluate the static stability characteristics of the SLV-1B with 4-square-foot fins. The model was instrumented with a six- component internal strain gage balance and two base pressure probes to determine the forces on the model. The model was then placed in the tunnel and tested in the Mach number range of 0.6 through 5.0, and a Reynolds number range of 6 millionft. to 20 millionft. The model attitude was varied from -10 to 10 degrees in the pitch plane. The results obtained were force and moment data in the body axes these results are presented in tabulated form with selected coefficients pre sented in plotted form.
