Abstract : Contained in the report are the aerodynamic and performance characteristics for the NIRO vehicle. Presented are the linear aerodynamic characteristics of the rigid vehicle, and aeroelastic corrections. Data are presented for two different payload diameters, and varying payload lengths. Also given are the pertinent vehicle inertial and propulsive data. The main volume is principally concerned with the overall aerodynamic, inertial and propulsion characteristics of the vehicle, with summary of performance data. (Author)
