Abstract:

This Engineering Test Procedure describes test methods and techniques for obtaining data on missile aerodynamics during actual flight conditions. Flight characteristics such as force and moment coefficients, heating affects and aeroelastic effects are determined. Preliminary missile parameters derived from analytical techniques and wind tunnel testing are verified and updated. Missile performance characteristics and flight safety boundaries are established.
