Pagination or Media Count:
Several mathematical models were developed to analytically explain the outputs from the wind shear probe accelerometers and magnetic aspect sensor. The methods developed were then applied to samples of recorded data to determine the effects of the various parameters upon calculated output. The results were neither consistent nor conclusive. The models developed considering small time interval approximations were too dependent upon reading accuracy. Additional work was directed toward improving the capability of the instrumentation system of the probe. Some temperature testing was conducted and circuit modifications and battery requirements were finalized. Modifications to the probe configuration were made to eliminate problem areas uncovered during the flight testing program. These were incorporated into the design and have been included in the probes under construction. Author
