Abstract : A system was developed to obtain and process wind-tunnel test data on a store in the presence of an airplane, so that the data could be used by a digital computer to predict store separation characteristics following launch. A separation was computed by the grid method using these data, for comparison with a trajectory obtained by the point prediction method. These trajectories were in good agreement. Trajectories were also analyzed to determine the effect of various separation parameters. (Author)
