Abstract:

The static stability and drag characteristics were investigated for a 0.05-scale model of a Low Cost Full-Scale Target LCFST at Mach numbers from 0. 2 to 1.3. Free-stream Reynolds number, based on the mean aerodynamic chord, varied between 0.9 and 2.2 million for angles of attack and sideslip of -2 to 8 deg and -3 to 3 deg, respectively. Data were obtained for horizontal tail deflections of -0.5 and -2 deg. Test results indicated that the target vehicle was statically stable in both the pitch and yaw planes. Negative deflection of the horizontal tail produced a substantial increase in pitching-moment coefficient at alpha 0.
