Abstract:

Low density wind tunnel tests were carried out at Mach 3 to simulate the release of nitric oxide in the upper atmosphere from a sounding rocket. The supersonic flow contained atomic oxygen, and the chemiluminescent reaction of O with NO was investigated. This interim report presents some of the details of the experimental arrangement and preliminary results of the first test series.
