Abstract : The purpose of this test program was to evaluate the tracking capability of a small lightweight sensor payload, which is used in miniature remotely piloted vehicles. These tests, which were conducted at Fort Huachuca, AZ in January 1974, employed a Cessna 337 aircraft to carry the payload. This report describes this test program and discusses the results obtained. (Author)
