Abstract : A graphite-epoxy composite wing for the BQM- 34E unmanned supersonic aerial target vehicle has been successfully static tested to 100 percent design limit load at the NAVAIRDEVCEN (Naval Air Development Center). Test procedures and results are described, and comparisons between analytical predictions and recorded values are presented. Good correlation between analysis and test was observed. On the basis of this test, the composite wing is considered statically quali-fied for flight. (Author-PL)
