Abstract : The objective of this test was to investigate methods of programming a LOX tank airborne regulator so that a 26.0 psid maximum tank pressure would be maintained during the first twenty seconds of powered flight, and a 31.0 psid maximum pressure would be maintained during the remainder of the flight.
