The over-all performance characteristics of a complete missile configuration were investigated in the Lewis 8- by 6-foot supersonic wind tunnel at Mach numbers 2.0, 1.8, and 1.5; angles of attack from 0 to 10 degrees, canard-control-surface deflections from 0 to 9 and one half degrees and at a Reynolds number of approximately 6.9 X 10(exp 6) based on wing mean aerodynamic chord.
