Abstract : The U.S. Air Force Wright Laboratory operates the Aeroballistic Research Facility. This facility is located at Eglin AFB FL and is an enclosed free-flight range used to perform aerodynamic tests and research. This report documents the theoretical and experimental considerations required by the test engineers facility operators and data analysts to effectively conduct their duties. These duties include, pretest planning conducting the tests, trajectory analysis, data correlation and the continued development of advanced and/or improved techniques.
