Abstract : Data from F-15 prototypes, properly dynamically scaled, were delivered to AL/CFBS by Captain Dan Baumann of WL/FIM as a result of the Window on Science Program. The prototypes were run in Israel at the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology by Dr. Ben Gal-Or of the Aeronautical Department. Over 20 runs of data were delivered and they included the Herbst's maneuver, the Cobra maneuver and a host of other agility motion profiles. The moments of inertia that were used to produce the scaling factors included such conditions as the plane having specific levels of bomb loads, as well as three fuel/conditions; low fuel, half fuel, and fully loaded fuel. These motion data delivered to AL/CFBS will be used to emulate supermaneuvers on the DES centrifuge motion simulator.
