Missiles and launchers

ONERA wind tunnel division test facilities offer a large capabilities for testing missile and launcher, with complete model or components (air intake, wings, rear part, ...) in the different flight phases (separation phases, cruise conditions, performances, high angle of attack, limit of the flight envelope conditions, ...).

  • Missile loadings
  • Full scale complete missile tests - power on
  • Air intake performances
  • Infrared signature
  • Model dynamic stability coefficients
  • Booster separation (with CTS)
  • Jet simulation (hot and cold gas)

For separation test, see "military aircraft" section
