Results of testing three electric arc heaters are presented. Two of the heaters had power input ratings of 1 MW one was designed for nitrogen and one for air operation. The third was rated at 5 MW for air operation. All three heaters were of segmented constrictor design for d-c operation. Operating experience and design information were gained from the 1-MW heaters. Ablation and aerodynamic tests were found to involve operation, pressure, and power outputs.
