Abstract:

The Free Flight Rocket Technology Program generated a need for the Free Flight Demonstration Rocket test vehicle. This vehicle is to be used to determine the success of past efforts to improve free rocket accuracy. It will also be used as a data-gathering test bed to evaluate future improvements. As part of the Free Flight Demonstration Rocket design validation, a series of two wind tunnel tests was conducted at the Arnold Engineering Development Center to verify the predicted aerodynamic coefficients of the selected configuration.
