Abstract : This report presents rolling moment data for transonic and supersonic wind tunnel tests on models of the XSM-65-A and SM-65-C missiles. The tests were run as a part of a general test program to determine aerodynamic characteristics of the missiles. The rolling moment data are applicable to design of the autopilot and roll control system, as well as aiding in general structural design. (Author)
