How were these visits worthwhile? What impressions of the CRTC stand out? Why are visits like this valuable? 3 star equivalent DoD leader from Pentagon views testing close-up Dr. David Brown, who oversees all nationwide military test facilities, helped develop an artillery test data gathering system called the Projectile Follower, during his early days of government service. The system later became the Flight Follower, which captures crisp photographic images of projectiles as they y from artillery tubes.

You have stated that testing is integral to the development process. Can you expound on the importance of this? What is the importance of testing in a natural environment? Do you see some equipment developers arguing that a climatic chamber is good enough for testing during the developmental process? What is the future of the testing world? You showed extreme interest in a piece of data gathering equipment, called the Flight Follower, you saw in use at YPG. Why? TESTINGFROM PAGE 1 Capable of producing extremely hot or cold temperatures, YPGs environmental chamber is useful for gathering a variety of weapon system test data, but the real test occurs when the weapon system meets the natural environment, which is much more challenging. Brown believes natural environments are so complex that we dont understand all the interactions with our equipment that can occur. Story and photos by Yolie Canales

Seventeen air drops of huge parachutes at high altitudes took place during this time, all in support of the Orion space exploration program. As stated by a senior NASA ofcial at the ceremony, The path to Mars for Orion runs through Yuma Proving Ground. (Photo by Mark Schauer) NASA recognizes YPG workforce with awards

6 MARCH 7, 2016 THE OUTPOSTY6By Mark Schauer YPG study could lead to faster mass parachute drops YPGs Air Combat Systems Test Directorate has for several years conducted tests on the C-17 Globemaster to determine the amount of time and distance necessary to safely separate each element of a multi-element insertion of combat parachutists. Data collection techniques developed for this study may have far reaching impacts on how wing tip vortices of both military and commercial aircraft may be studied in the future. (Loaned photos) SEE STUDY page 7

PAGE 7

THE OUTPOST MARCH 7, 2016 7Y7 To study the vortices caused by cargo planes, YPG testers conducted more than 150 ights across all hours of the day and night for two weeks, using a LIDAR-equipped chase plane to characterize the aerial disturbance left in the planes wake. The testers frequently changed their ight approaches in real time to accommodate different wind and weather conditions.STUDYFROM PAGE 6 A variety of wildlife roam free on the range at U.S. Army Cold Regions Test Center, including the moose seen here. As the nations preeminent extreme cold natural environment test range, the facility serves as a natural laboratory that supports testing of virtually every piece of equipment in the ground combat arsenal. For more than 60 years it has ensured that our nations warghters have equipment that will perform as expected in a harsh arctic environment. (Photo by Mark Schauer) Moose are on the loose and moving freely VIEWPOINTS Though interior Alaska had a relatively balmy winter that rarely saw temperatures dip below -25 degrees Fahrenheit, summer is the season many residents look forward to.
