10,000 Foot Drop Test


This paper describes an air drop test conducted by an aerospace company. An airfoil component was instrumented with IST's EDR-6DOF motionmaster recorder and dropped from a helicopter at 10,000 feet. The EDR-6DOF measured and recorder tri-axial linear accelerations and also angular rates during the free fall and ground impact. The data is presented in this paper.
