Engineers at Arnold AFB develop projectile telemetry capability to study boundary layer transition

Engineers with the Space and Missiles Combined Test Force at Arnold Air Force Base are developing a telemetry package that will be used to transmit data when launching projectiles at over 25,000 Gs. To accommodate a stand-alone electronics package, an antenna with a detachable radome and multiple integrated sensors, the projectile itself is made up of different parts and materials. Shown are the various parts of the project and then the projectile when totally assembled. (U.S. Air Force photos/Deidre Ortiz)
