This report describes an effort at the Flight Dynamics Directorate to use small scale models, miniature instrumentation and small in-house hypersonic facilities to accomplish full configurational testing of vehicle concepts. The project included development of procedures for generating model geometry data and transmitting that data to 495th TW machine shops of model fabrication on NC machines. A discussion of problems peculiar to testing of small scale models is included. A comparison is presented of data taken under this effort with similar data taken in large production wind tunnels on large scale models.
