LASER-ILLUMINTAED PHOTOGRAPHY was developed at the Arnold Engineering Development Complex to study ablative effects on a 12,000 mph free-flight projectile in the Center’s 1,000-foot hypervelocity ballistic range. The technique provided a photographic exposure equivalent to 20 billionths of a second. (1970 AEDC Photo)

AEROBALLISTIC LAUNCH PREPARATION-Final step is the insertion of powder charge into breech launcher. In sequence, powder compresses hydrogen, hydrogen drives piston, piston compresses hydrogen in pump tube which accelerates model to desired velocity. The free-flight models will be fired through the 1,000-foot range at velocities up to and exceeding Mach 20. The test unit, 1,000-ft Hypervelocity Range-G, is part of the von Karman Gas Dynamics Facility at AEDC. (1963 AEDC Photo)

The Federal Research Center at White Oak, home to the AEDC Hypervelocity Wind Tunnel 9, in Silver Spring Md. hosts the White Oak Classic 5K run and 2.5 mile walk each year in which Tunnel 9 personnel participate. Last month 15 Tunnel 9 individuals participated with more than 1,000 participants from the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Tunnel 9 personnel train as a group to prepare for the race. Pictured on the back row, left to right is Lindsay Haig, Mike Fain, Bob Hurt, Arnold Collier and Dan Marren; on the middle row, left to right is Jeanette Moreno, Christine Ewing, Sarah Cole, Dennis Huprich and Mike Metzger; on the front row, left to right is John Lafferty (kneeling), Terry Mullin, Jeff Waldo, Oscar Villegas (kneeling) and Mick Marana.

David Brown and Troy Perry, ATA outside machinists, install a slug projectile with a pitch motor installed into the 8-inch bore diameter barrel of AEDC’s Hypervelocity Range G’s launcher. This projectile will be launched out of the G Range two-stage light gas gun at a velocity of 8,200 feet per second. This is the first test of a new rocket motor that will be used to pitch the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) projectile up to a predetermined angle prior to impacting simulated threat targets. The primary objective of this shot is to verify pitch motor ignition and performance. (Photo by David Housch)
