Abstract : This report has three volumes. This volume describes the data and procedures used to generate the BET used for this analysis. It includes trajectory (and associated quantities) tabulations, sensor residual plots, and plots of aircraft acceleration and attitude as a function of time to show the trajectory dynamic environment. In addition, the WSMR-derived BET and the Aerospace BET are compared.
