Abstract : The APL Propulsion Research Laboratory constitutes a versatile blowdown facility for the implementation of exploratory development of advanced propulsion systems. Because of its ability to simulate the environmental conditions of high-speed flight, the facility has also been extended to implement experiments on ablation, heat transfer, and wake studies associated with missile re-entry. This is the first of what is intended to be a series of annual progress reports; it covers the period of October 1, 1963 until September 30, 1964. (Author)
