The basic objective of the current work was to obtain reliable, interference-free base pressure distribution data on a 10 deg half angle sharp cone at high angles of attack and at hypersonic speeds with varying Reynolds numbers. To this end, a free-flying instrumented model was developed and tested in a free jet hypersonic facility. It was designed to be injected into the flow field at predetermined angles of attack and roll and to be released with adequate vertical velocity to fly through the test section.
