An investigation has been made to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a cruciform 70 degree delta-wing missile configuration with 4-foot supersonic pressure tunnel. The complete model, various combinations of component parts, and modifications to the basic configuration were tested through an angle-of-attack range of 0 to about 28 degrees at a sideslip angle of 0 degrees and through an angle-of-sideslip range of 0 to about 20 degrees as and angle of attack of 0 degrees.
