Abstract:

The TRACOR XADR-9A missile was set up in cell 6 and testing began on 26 May 1964. During the test period, ten 10 configurations were tested at Mach numbers of .8, .9, 1.0, and 1.1. The determination of the model roll rate was the primary objective of the test, at each Mach number and aat 0, 5, and 10 degrees angle of attack. Two booster rocket separation tests were covered by Fastax movies to determine any in-flight effects of booster rocket separation. Two radial fin failures encountered during the test were caused by weak silver solder joints. Testing was completed 28 May 1964 and model was removed and returned to the test sponsor.
