Abstract : This report documents results of a system checkout of the completed flight test vehicle (BDU) for Project DAME while it was exposed in a static environment test simulator to a predicted flight vibration and thermal environment. The BDU was subjected to numerous vibration and aeroheat test cycles using both soft- and hard-mounting systems. Both ground station and on-board data were acquired and are presented in the report.
