B52 ARRW Hypersonic Evaluation Test at Edwards Air Force Base


A prototype of the ARRW was attached to a B-52 to gather test data including environmental and aircraft handling characteristics. The test gathered data on drag and vibration impacts on the weapon itself and on the external carriage equipment of the aircraft. The prototype did not have explosives, instead it was outfitted with sensors and was not released from the B-52 during the flight test. (Video: Edwards Air Force Base/YouTube)
