Abstract : The report documents the results of a study in which the aerodynamic stability and performance coefficients of the XSM-65A missile were determined for the range of flight conditions encountered during the powered flight phase of the missile trajectory. The study was undertaken to provide criteria for missile autopilot and roll control system design and data for use in trajectory performance computations. (AUTHOR)
