    SDC's Nosecone Tested on Supersonic Sled


    San Diego, CA, March 19, 2014 - San Diego Composites, Inc. (SDC) completed two sled tests in October 2013 to evaluate the impact of rain droplets on nosecone materials at supersonic speeds (video). The two tests were conducted at the Holloman Air Force Base high speed test track In New Mexico. In both tests, a composite nosecone was mounted to the front end of a sled which was propelled by a rocket motor through a simulated rain field.
