The rake hardware that will be used this summer in the Phase II Flow Calibration of the 40-by-80 foot test section at the AEDC National Full-Scale Aerodynamics Complex at the Ames Research Facility, California, was fabricated at the AEDC Model and Machine Shop. Fabrication of the flow characterization rake was kept “in house” due to tight tolerance requirements, the ability to have local oversight of the fabrication efforts, and to keep the flexibility to adjust design constraints on the fly, all the while maintaining schedule for a summer 2017 test entry. The rake is designed to support 27 probes distributed in an array so that flow quality measurements can be made across a representative cross section of the wind tunnel test section. The probes will measure flow static and dynamic pressure as well as flow angles and turbulence over the survey area. Additional sensors on the array will measure tunnel total temperature. The goal of the Phase II Flow Calibration is to characterize the 40-by-80 test section flow quality throughout the tunnel operational envelope and report the results.

This prescribed fire shown at Arnold Air Force Base is a necessary process that promotes new growth by removing dead vegetation and suppressing woody species that would eventually grow into a forest in the absence of fire. (AEDC photo) Prescribed fire sustains Arnold land management goals
ARNOLD AIR FORCE BASE, TENN. – Proper utilization of prescribed fire is both art and science, as it takes a combination of fuel conditions, weather conditions, smoke management, ignition techniques and timing to result in the appropriate fire intensity to accomplish site specific management goals.All of the Arnold Air Force Base ecosystems, from

AEDC engineers test the Towed Airborne Plume Simulator (TAPS), a missile simulator that can be towed 500 to 1000 meters behind an aircraft to test early warning sensors on military aircraft and allow for either evasive or defensive action. The TAPS system is tested at the AEDC High Speed Fan Facility prior to a flight mission. There TAPS plume is controlled to mimic the behavior of a surface-to-air missile plume. In February, the AEDC TAPS team was named the recipient of the Outstanding Scientist Team Award, one of the AEDC Science, Engineering and Technical Management Awards presented for outstanding performance in management.

Default Air Force Logo Remain ‘Alert,’ register your information
It has floated up through the grapevine that there is some confusion, or maybe more correctly put, “consternation” regarding the Emergency Mass Notification System (EMNS) we use here at AEDC.As you can see below in an excerpt from AFMC guidance on the EMNS dated Dec. 19 2016, Head Quarters has taken notice as well. “Installations will no longer use
