Abstract : This technical information memorandum presents the results and data from wind tunnel calibration of the flow-angle sensing portion of the Air Force Flight Test Center noseboom instrumentation unit. Analysis of the data from the NASA/Ames Research Center 11- by 11-foot and 9- by 7-foot wind tunnels is presented along with fairings resulting from the analysis. The data fairings, which present error in sensed angle of attack and sensed angle of sideslip as a function of Mach number, angle of attack, and angle of sideslip, are summarized and compared extensively with the data. Computer software incorporating the data fairings in a concise form for data reduction routines and the software documentation are included. Volume I of this memorandum includes discussion of the analysis, data fairings, fairing-to-data comparisons, software and software documentation. Volume II is a run schedule and complete listing of the NASA/ARC original wind tunnel data. (Author)
