Abstract:

This report deals specifically with the design considerations of including a B-dot sensor on the existing nose boom of the NASA Langley Research Center experimental F-106B aircraft. Although mounting the B-dot sensor on the existing boom may not be the ideal location, time and aerodynamic constraints require a consideration of sensor placement on the boom. This report also analyzes the performance of a B-dot sensor on the existing boom. The objective of the B-dot sensor is to enable a measurement of the incident B-dot field in the direction of the aircraft axis, in a flyby configuration near the ATHAMAS II VPD-II facility. Selected scale-model data useful in supporting the sensor design are included in Appendix B. Author
