As part of a general experimental investigation of wing-aileron rolling-effectiveness characteristics at transonic and supersonic speeds utilizing rocket-propelled test vehicles, several delta wing - aileron configurations were tested. The configurations tested included delta wings having 45 and 60 degree sweepback of the leading edge with constant-chord plain ailerons and a delta wing having 45 degree sweepback of the leading edge with delta wing-tip ailerons.
