A wind-tunnel investigation was conducted in the Aerodynamic Wind Tunnel 4T to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of bomblet munition models designed for the evaluation of the Roll-Through-Zero Aerodynamic Dispersal Technique. Static stability, pitch-damping, roll-damping, and magnus data were obtained at Mach numbers from 0.3 to 1.2 and angles of attack from zero to 24 deg at a constant Reynolds number of 2,200,000 based on the model length. Roll angle was varied from -165 to 180 deg for the static stability phase.
