The pressure recovery, mass flow, and drag of a twin-scoop inlet-body combination were measured at Mach numbers of 1.4 and 1.7 at zero angle of attack, and the results were presented in a preliminary data report. These data, in addition to some more recently obtained results of tests of the forebodies, are presented and analyzed in the present report.
