PostSubject: Arnold Engineering Development Center Photos (Open House Tour 2001)   Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:20 pm

Thought you guys might enjoy viewing the photos from my AEDC open house tour back in June , 2001 . We'll probably never see those days again , sad to say...

I actually worked at Sverdrop in the JTF section for a short time . lol It was fun calling the blue taxis to get around the place! I wasn't fired or let go - just left for a better job with better pay ...

Anyway, hope you enjoy!

Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) is the most advanced and largest complex
of flight simulation test facilities in the world. The complex operates 43 aerodynamic and propulsion
wind tunnels, rocket and turbine engine test cells, space environmental chambers, arc heaters,
ballistic ranges and other specialized units. Many of the complex's test units have capabilities
unmatched elsewhere in the United States; some are unique in the world. AEDC is an Air Force
Materiel Command organization and an important national resource.

ARNOLD ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT COMPLEX


Arnold Engineering Development Complex, located at Arnold AFB, Tenn., is the most advanced and
largest complex of flight simulation test facilities in the world. The complex operates 43 aerodynamic
and propulsion wind tunnels, rocket and turbine engine test cells, space environmental chambers, arc
heaters, ballistic ranges and other specialized units.

Twenty-seven of the complex's test units have capabilities unmatched elsewhere in the United States;
14 are unique in the world. Facilities can simulate flight conditions from sea level to 300 miles and from
subsonic velocities to Mach 20.

The AEDC is an Air Force Materiel Command facility and an important national resource. It has
contributed to the development of practically every one of the nation's top priority aerospace programs
including the Atlas, Titan, Minuteman and Peacekeeper ICBMs, the space shuttle, space station, and
Projects Mercury, Gemini and Apollo.

Aircraft include the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, F-22A Raptor, A-10 Thunderbolt II, F-14 Tomcat,
F-15 Eagle, F-16 Fighting Falcon, F/A-18 Hornet and F/A-18 Super Hornet, F-105 Thunderchief,
F-111 Aardvark, F-117A Nighthawk, C-5 Galaxy, C-17 Globemaster III, C-141Starlifter, B-1B Lancer,
B-2 Spirit, B-52 Stratofortress, B-58 Hustler, X-15, X-29, X-32 and X-33, X-35, XB-70 Valkyrie.

Satellites include NAVSTAR GPS, MAPS and GOES-M weather satellite.

Missiles include the Polaris, Poseidon and Trident submarine-launched ballistic missiles, the Minuteman
ICBMS plus the Tomahawk and Air-Launched Cruise Missiles and the Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air
Missile.

Customers include the Department of Defense, Army, Navy and Air Force organizations; the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration, both domestic and foreign private industry, allied foreign governments
and educational institutions.

AEDC is named for the man responsible for its conception -- General of the Air Force Henry H. "Hap" Arnold.
Shortly before the end of World War II, General Arnold asked Dr. Theodore von Karman, one of history's great
aeronautical scientists, to form a Scientific Advisory Group to chart a long-range research and development
course for the future U.S. Air Force. AEDC was a result of that plan.


AEDC strives to:
· Test and evaluate aircraft, missile and space systems and subsystems at the flight conditions they will
experience during a mission to: help customers develop and qualify the systems for flight, improve system
designs and establish performance before production, and to help users troubleshoot problems with operational
systems;

· Conduct a research and technology program to develop advanced testing techniques and instrumentation
and to support the design of new test facilities. The continual improvement helps satisfy testing needs and keeps
pace with rapidly advancing aircraft, missile and space system requirements;

· Maintain and modernize the center's existing test facilities.
