The Flight Test System; an Overview (Part 2)

Click here for part 1

The second subsystem of the FTS (Flight Test System) is the test payload.  It will be dropped by the S1000+ from 106.7 m (350 ft).

Above is a 3D model of the guidance system test payload.  The test payload will differ in design depending on which system will be tested.  For example, the parachute test payload may just be a simple cylinder, whereas the guidance system test payload has fins and a more aerodynamic shape.
