The SHEFEX-II hypersonic flight experiment was launched from Andoya rocket range in Norway on 22.06.2012 consisting of an extensively instrumented scientific payload on top of a two-stage rocket configuration. With an apogee of about 177 km, the vehicle achieved flight velocities up to 2790 m/s corresponding to Mach numbers up to 9.3. Almost all heat flux, temperature and pressure sensors provided very clear data during ascent and descent phases. Measured pressure data from sensors at different locations of the scientific payload show consistent results concerning the aerodynamic behavior on the vehicle along the complete trajectory. Pressure fluctuations measured during ascent, show a good correlation to angle of attack variations. Calculated pressure coefficients from a CFD analysis at selected trajectory points are in good agreement with the measured pressure data.
