Static and pitch damping moment stability coefficients are presented for three candidate MK 82 Snakeye Bomb replacement configurations as functions of Mach number. The normal force coefficient slope, and the center of pressure are also determined for each design. All coefficients are measured at a Mach number of .13 in the subsonic tunnel of AFATL and at Mach numbers of .5 and .8 in the transonic pilot tunnel of the NSRDC. The restoring moment stability coefficient, normal force coefficient slope, and center of pressure of the fixed fin design are also measured at transonic Mach numbers at AEDC. The inflatable stabilizer retarder configurations are found to have more static and pitch damping stability than the fixed fin design.
