The AEDC T-11 engine test cell at Arnold Air Force Base was recently modified as part of effort in the AEDC technology program to develop test and evaluation techniques that will prepare the Complex to meet future vision system weapon requirements. To implement a plug-in module concept, the T-11 plenum was modified by installing a spool piece that enabled the installation of a plenum apparatus and provided the interface for the plug-in modules. Pictured is the Research Cell R1D section that will become a plug-in module for T-11. (AEDC photo) AEDC T-11 engine test cell modified to expand its capabilities

AEDC instrumentation engineer Dan Pruyn works on the Tiltrotor Test Rig in preparation for a test in the 40-foot by-80-foot wind tunnel at the National Full-Scale Aerodynamics Complex, the AEDC wind tunnel testing site located in California. The test of the TTR is a project sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. TTR is a horizontal axis rig and rotates on the test section turntable to face the rotor into the wind at high speed, or fly edge-wise at low speed (100 knots), or at any angle in between. It is designed to accommodate a variety of rotors. (U.S. Air Force photo/Jeffrey Johnson) Engineer preps item for testing at AEDC National Full-scale Aerodynamics Complex
