Abstract:

During flight tests of the Atlas missiles, it will be necessary to measure and telemeter to ground receiving stations numerous surface temperatures at various locations on the missile skin. It has been proposed that temperature sensitive platinum resistance gages be attached to the missile surfaces to perform this function. Since these temperature gages will be exposed to aerodynamic heating and high velocity air flow, they must of necessity be strong and well-bonded to the missile surface. In order to investigate the adequacy of the proposed gage installations, a series of test has been conducted in which the gages have been subjected to an environment similar to that which they will encounter during actual missile flight.
