Abstract:

Testing was conducted to verify satisfactory fit, carriage, and release of munitions from the F-111 aircraft. The munitions were fit checked in various configurations to verify physical fit and electrical compatibility. They were then flown on extended captive flights to insure that aircraft handling qualities were not degraded andor to verify the integrity of the munition aircraft configuration. Finally, as appropriate, the munitions were released at predetermined airspeed, dive angle, altitude, and wing sweep angles to verify safe separation throughout the aircraftmunitions envelope. The data from the completed tests were then analyzed and recommendations for certification forwarded to the F-111 system program office SPO for use in publication of the applicable handbooks. This report does not repeat all certification information, but provides configuration and mission summaries and elaborates on the various test problem areas encountered.
