For application to the proposed laser guided Honest John Missile barometric fuze system, specially designed probes to measure the undisturbed free-stream ambient pressure were mounted forward of the nose of a full-scale model of the missile forward section and tested in the Naval Ship Research and Development Centers 7x10 ft transonic wind tunnel facility at Mach numbers 0.90 to 1.15 and at an approximately constant Reynolds number per foot of 1.92 million, the latter corresponding to an altitude of approximately 40,000 ft. Test data was obtained for the after body angle of attack range 0 to 10 degrees with 0 and plus or minus 5 degree canard deflections.
