Abstract:

The results of dynamic monorail rocket sled tests to evaluate the air bearing slipper concept are presented and discussed. The tests were conducted on the test track at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico at velocities up to 4200 feet per second. The prime data collected during the tests were pressure measurements between the sled slipper bearing surface and the test track rail. Secondary measurements of slipper reaction forces, and longitudinal and vertical acceleration were also collected during each test. Author
