Abstract : Two slightly different configurations of the Black Brant V rocket were tested at Mach number 7 in the NAE helium hypersonic wind tunnel. Static longitudinal characteristics were measured at two Reynolds numbers differing by a factor of 8, over a nominal incidence range of plus or minus 5 degrees. The helium results were converted to equivalent air results and compared with those of the NAE 5-foot air wind tunnel, in which the maximum Mach number reached was 4.25. The results from both tunnels were compared with calculated values. (Author)
