The CTV flight test will maneuver the airframe and confirm rocket motor performance and aeroballistics.
The primary objectives of the test included establishing the appropriate charge weight to ensure proper muzzle velocity when the round exits the mortar tube; evaluating range performance, obtaining aeroballistics data and verifying structural integrity at hot, cold and ambient temperatures.
Phase III and IV will focus on optimizing the aeroballistics of the projectile, developing a final design for prototype demonstration, and testing the design before moving to a manufacturing phase.
