Abstract:

The overall status of the X-15 program is reviewed and program plans for future flights are considered. Since the initiation of the flight program, approximately 150 flights have been performed over a broad altitude and Mach number range. This paper presents background information on the basic research studies and test-bed experiments to be presented at this Conference and reviews the operational problems encountered since the 1961 Conference on the X-15. A comprehensive bibliography of reports resulting from the X-15 program, arranged according to subject matter, is included.
