The wind-driven dynamic manipulator is a device which uses the wind tunnel freestream energy to drive multiaxis maneuvers of test models. This paper summarizes work performed using the device in several applications and discusses current work on characterizing the aerodynamics of an X-38 vehicle model in pitch-yaw maneuvers. Previous applications in flow visualization, adaptive control and lineardomain parameter identification are now extended to multiaxis inverse force and moment measurementdoi:10.4271/975589 fatcat:vba7dxbw7vdhzezpmyfdjnlxw4
