The AEDC T-11 engine test cell at Arnold Air Force Base was recently modified as part of effort in the AEDC technology program to develop test and evaluation techniques that will prepare the Complex to meet future vision system weapon requirements. To implement a plug-in module concept, the T-11 plenum was modified by installing a spool piece that enabled the installation of a plenum apparatus and provided the interface for the plug-in modules. Pictured is the Research Cell R1D section that will become a plug-in module for T-11. (AEDC photo) AEDC T-11 engine test cell modified to expand its capabilities
The AEDC T-11 engine test cell at Arnold Air Force Base has been enhanced to perform a wide variety of research tests in addition to its primary role of testing small engines in a direct-connect configuration.

October marks the 20th anniversary of the Hypervelocity Wind Tunnel 9 as an Air Force facility. Tunnel 9, located at White Oak, Maryland near Silver Spring, became operational in 1976. The facility provides aerodynamic simulation critical to the development of hypersonic systems, including critical altitude regimes associated with strategic missile systems and advanced defensive interceptor systems, and hypersonic vehicle technologies.
