The EDM model at the French Aerospace Lab (ONERA) S4MA wind tunnel.

This tunnel can produce winds with velocities as high as 12 times the speed of sound (Mach 12). The EDM model is 180 mm in diameter. A complete set of instruments is integrated within the model and its support structure, in order to measure the aerodynamic forces on the model.
