  3. 3. lc MLODUWION The prima purposes of the test program on the Avroear are : hn following¡ 1. Define flight characteristics of tais particular testbed. (performance. stability. control. etc. ). 2. Specifically. define and investigate problem areas that may be inheront with the principles used. 3. Provido an evaluation of this principle of flight from standpoint of flying qualities. 4. Brovide date from which an analysis and evaluation of the 'operational usefulness' may ba made. . at this stage of development of the teetbe-d. evaluation of the operational potential of the principle involved by the services is the major objectiva. The anumarnted purposes above are established as means of accomplishing this objective. ihe gathering of quantitative data by the contractor to support future design efforts ia of secondary importance ut this point. Provisiom for this type of testing will be made after evaluation by the services and e decision to procesd with design studies. All effort must be directed at this point toward ansvering the question of whether or not this principle of flight warrants further development by the services. In order to accompliah the naJor objective of tais program a series of teste will be C0nduCtBÕ on the Avrocer by various agencies. rlans for the conduct of these tests aro described in this document. A general brsakdoun of the tests required to acconpliah the above enunorated purposes. the agencies responsible for conduct of these tests. and the agencies responsible for management of these tests is given in the following charts ? get Aggngz Ground Test ) Arno 'Masc ranagernent ; cmo SPG/ TR-l95 Phase I ) ) Development Test ) Avro AVES SEG/ TR-125 Phase II â Category I - 29 hr. ) Evaluation Test ) uma Sggãgçãant caiam" II ' 3o hr ) 'MDC Co-ordinetion- ind 1 1 T t É . _ consultation NASA U 'unha es háâe ¡Lm Flight Test - 5o hr. ) NASA Follow-on Research Amro/ nana/ Army

Discussion of Objectives: Since these tests are already in progress at this time, a detailed discussion of this portion of the test program will not be made. Responsibilities: (1) WSPO overall Management (2) WADC (a) Technical consultants and co-ordination cn test plans and questions of qualification. (b) Provide instrumentation as requested.

(c) Demonstrate compliance with guarantees as stipulated by contract. 1 Discussion of Objectivesz I It is well at this point to review the major objective of the tgp? program which is to provide data from which an evaluation can bei made of the operational potential of this flight principle. It is the prime responsibility of the AFFTC to provide the data for this evaluation and primarily the contractor's responsibility to develop the aircraft to the point where the AFFTC and NASA can conduct a satisfactory flight test program. In view of the objectives it should be emphasized again that tha prime purpose of this program is developmental in nature and the contractor should refrain from extending the test program toi ' obtain data for support of design efforts. Objectives (a) and (C) are the contractor's responsibility and¡ consequently the contractor has the authority to decide on the; _ necessary modification to the test aircraft which may be requiç›g to accomplish these objectives. d With respect to objective (b), however, the AFFTC will be the authority for approving step by step the direction of this poa fg | of the development tests. J This portion of the test program will be allowed to proceed, gia the discretion of the APFTC representativo, regardless of the ¡ ostatus of the wind tunnel testing by the NASA. Responsibilities: AVRO (a) Conduct test program - maintain operational control of* test a rcrait.

  9. 9. EVALUATION TEST ! Categorv II¡ Objectivas: É (a) Define performance, stability and control characteristics 37 this particular testbed. (b) Define problem areas that may be inherent in this designgj (c) Evaluate the flying qualities peculiar to this principlekál, flight. 1 (dl Provide data from which analysis and evaluation of the "operational application" may be made. Discussion of Objectivas: The prime purpose of the contractor's ground and development . _ testing was to provide an airworthy Vehicle on which this evalpá. ation test could be conducted. This evaluation test is intend to provide the major portion of the information required to 9 ! É the Army and Air Force to decide whether the principle warrant§'“ further development. It should be emphasized that this test is primarily a fact-findi-E exercise. The only evaluation or opinion that will be rendered i by the test team will be in the area of flying qualities. Ndf_ evaluation or opinion will be ventured on the operational appl1'“ ation of this design, the obvious may be suggested, but primf n purpose of the test will be to provide data from which the Armygaí Air Force operational analyst may determine the potential of f¡à principle. It is essential that a service agency conduct this test in order that the tests conducted, the data gathered andqtuâ discussion of this data reflect the operational viewpoint. _ Information and guidance on type of data, service problems, wilñ be furnished to AFFTC by the WSPO. It is desirable that this test be completed before initiationppt NASA flight testing in order that plans for the NASA tests'°' já based upon problem areas already defined by the AFFTC test It has been implied throughout this test plan that the NASA will follow the AFFTC tests. In any event, the_NASA flightj will continue beyond the AFFTC tests since a longer program _J planned and NRSA will not commence flying until the contractbr? ; development testing is complete. '*' It is estimated that 30 hours of testing will be required to complete this program.
