Pressure and heat transfer data were obtained for Mach 8 flows over a blunt pyramidal configuration composed of a 70-degree sweepback delta wing surface and two dihedral surfaces. Trailing edge flap deflections were varied up to 50 degrees on all surfaces, and the model was tested with and without canards and ventral fins. The model was pitched at angles of attack between 54 degrees and was tested at sideslip angles of 0 and 12 degrees for free stream Reynolds numbers, based on model length of 1.5 and 4.5 million.
