The methods and results of the study of the effects of operational SST maneuvers on sonic boom are contained in three volumes. Volume I shows that the theoretical effects of operational maneuvers due to typical SST maneuvers are small except for maneuvers at Mach numbers below about Mach 1.3. Methods are outlined for applying the results to any airplane, and selected pressure signatures are presented for the U.S. SST and SCAT 15-F. Author
