A study was made to determine locations of pressure sensors for controlling the spike position of a blunt-lip, axisymmetric inlet having internal contraction. The inlet performance was determined at Mach numbers of 0.63 and 1.5 to 2.0 for airflow schedules corresponding to those of a given turbojet engine over a wide range of ambient temperatures.
