When the Apollo lunar landing project is complete, the Saturn and Apollo hardware will only have begun to realize their ultimate potential for space exploration. The immense reserve of Apollo technology, facilities, and booster capability can then be directed to the achievement of national goals which lie far beyond the initial lunar landing. In achieving the Apollo lunar objectives, large investments will have been made in launch facilities, tracking systems, propulsion techniques, reentry systems, lunar landing systems and rendezvous technologies. Although developnent in these specialized areas has been tailored to the needs of Apollo, numerous studies by NASA and industry have demonstrated the feasibility of using the spacecraft, launch vehicles, and operating techniques for missions far more complex than lunar landings. Amortization of this hardware will prove cost-effective for missions of more sophisticated applications. Press release describing a photograph of a lunar module. Press release describing NASA's plans to begin manned missions set to begin in 1968. Release describing the launch of the Apollo 11. Remarks by Vaino J. Vehko, Director of Engineering, Chrysler Corporation Space Division at 30th Annual Meeting, Aviation/Space Writers Association, Las Vegas, Nevada Report detailing the progress NASA's Mississippi test facility has made testing the Apollo-Saturn rocket. Saturn and Apollo hardware will not have realized their ultimate potential for space exploration after the project lunar landing is complete. To accomplish the Apollo lunar landing program, an immense backlog of technology, facilities, and booster capability will have been built up, and we believe proper utilization of this resource will fill the needs for planetary, lunar and earth orbital space exploration for years to come. Space experimentation is expanding rapidly. Unmanned satellites are being equipped with precision instruments of greater power, and manned space stations accommodating large crews are in the drawing-board stage. The interface problems between these sophisticated instruments and between man, the spacecraft, and the supporting groundstations are multidimensional. This paper analyzes the scientific/technical areas of space experimentation, and continues with a review of the subsystems and support systems required to supply and operate the large variety of instruments. Areas of major integration efforts are singled out and the requirements for further developments and improvements are listed. A bibliography of 95 references is enclosed to assist in the identification of more detailed reports on all vital aspects of space experimentation.; Archive copy is a photocopy.; Supplement to IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, Vol. AES-2, No. 4, July, 1966.

The actuation system for the Saturn V S-IC stage is described and compared to the Saturn I system. The use of mechanical feedback actuators that result in a significant increase in system reliability and the damping of load resonance is discussed. The unprecedented component sizes and system requirements are cited. The Committee on Interdivisional Dissemination of Manufacturing Development Information (CIDMDI) is comprised of NR - divisional representatives closely associated with advancement of the manufacturing arts . The purpose of the committee is to impart and receive development information of interest to NR manufacturing areas. Space Division's Central Manufacturing presents this CIDMDI Annual Report, for CFY 1968, in compliance with CIDMDI objectives. Included are research projects conducted by Central Manufacturing,as well as pertinent items submitted by the Apollo and Saturn Projects, for which, acknowledgement and appreciation are extended.

A list of Wernher von Braun's meetings with President Kennedy, the Vice President and members of their immediate staff. The first test of the command and communications system, a unified frequency S-band system, aboard AS-501 was successful. Compatibility of this system with the MSFN/USB sites was established. The onboard transponder and antenna system including antenna switching performed as predicted. The command performance was excellent with 5747 valid commands received onboard out of 5748 commands transmitted. Data reduction problems prevented a complete analysis of the tracking data. Telemetry system performance was satisfactory with a measured bit-error-rate of 4 x10-5 while over the Ascension Island station. This flight provided valuable data which can be used to define vehicle to-ground-station interfaces, to establish attitude constraints during translunar injection, and to improve operational procedures. One more test as successful as the AS-501 test would qualify the system as operational.; May 3,1968. The flrst flight test of the Apollo/Saturn V space vehicle is scheduled for launch from the Natlonal Aeronautics and Space Administration's John F, Kennedy Space Center, Fla., no earlier than Nov. 7. The mission is designated Apollo 4. The history of man might be considered as an ever increasing quantity and quality of measurements. Measurements related to space have been made by early astronomers, modern astronomers, and now by aerospace technologists. The manned lunar landing, a major national goal, has given us the means to measure in space. The space vehicle development itself has made heavy demands on instrumentation; this is discussed in some detail in this paper. The advantages of the International System of Units are mentioned. Some examples are used to illustrate the future of space measurement. The John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Apollo/Saturn V Development/Operations Plan, K-PM-0, establislies the requirement for an Apollo/Saturn V Master Test Plan (MBP). This document, prepared by the Saturn Systems Office. The objective of this study is to describe a comprehensive plan for the development and full utilization of methods and means to be employed in the years prior to 1976 for the effective acquisition, collection, storage, retrieval, distribution, and use of engineering documentation. Because of the violently changing state of the art of data acquisition, storage, and retrieval the description of the plan does not embrace the details of a total decade of phased change. Rather it describes actions that can and should be taken in the relatively near future, and proposes a continuing series of later studies to keep this plan current for the full decade. The Preliminary Skeletal Operations Plan is a statement of the operational concept for Apollo. This draft contains a description of the conduct of the Apollo LOR landing mission and a mission profile. It provides the basis for more detailed mission planning, for generating functional criteria for equipment design, and for measuring the adequacy of the current Apollo hardware for satisfying operational needs. The proceedings of the First Annual Logistics Management Symposium are forwarded with the hope that the information will be of assistance to attendees and their staffs in the planning and management of logistics support programs. I recognize that there is still much study required before all management techniques and procedures for support programs are known and understood, but I believe that support problems are made easier by exchange of knowledge. The Symposium was based on this belief and we plan to continue the search for ways to achieve better program support at a lower cost. Edmund F. O'Connor, Director, Industrial Operations. The purpose of this document is to describe how the Manned Spacecraft Center is managing its responsibilities in the Apollo Program The organization, procedures, and management philosophy described herein, represent the accumulated knowledge gained from our experience with the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo Programs. It should be remembered, however, that managing a research and development program of Apollo's size and complexity, is an experimental "R&D" process in itself. The results of an OMSF AS-201 Interlock and RCA 110A Computer Review were published. Recognizing that this was a "quick look", it was determined that a more detailed approach should be taken with respect to interlocks for the duration of the Saturn IB-V program. The Saturn S-IVB stage has a requirement for orbiting around the earth for up to 4.5 hours with approximately 60 percent of its initial propellant remaining at the end of the coast (prior to restart) . Extensive analyses must be performed to insure that this requirement is met. Both the maximum and minimum heat transfer rates are important because the maximum rates affect the hydrogen boiloff losses and thus the initial propellant loading requirements. The minimum rates are important because the boil off gases are used to maintain a minimum axial thrust level by venting the gases continuously through aft facing nozzles. This provides for a settling of the propellant throughout the orbital coast and alleviates the need for periodically venting the tank under zero gravity. These are the facts about IBM's role as a NASA prime contractor in the Apollo/Saturn program. They are organized for quick reference. Computer terms are defined in a glossary.

These hypothetical missions are discussed in the context of the present and potential capability of three configurations of the Saturn vehicle; an uprated Saturn I, a three-stage Saturn V and a four-stage Saturn V. NOTE: Work presented herein was conducted by the Douglas Missiles and Space Systems Division under company-sponsored research and development funds. Therefore, the concepts and objectives described within this paper reflect the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily constitute endorsement by NASA, the Air Force, or any other U.S. Government organization. The nominal performance numbers presented are typical of the current configurations and possible future vehicle configurations. This paper discusses the propulsion requirements for various stages of the Apollo vehicles and the development of these engines. This paper presents a general review of major structural alloys that have been used in liquid rockets and space vehicles, the current state-of-the-art as applied to the Apollo launch vehicle systems, and discusses some materials currently under development for future requirements in vehicles for space exploration. Some aspects of the importance of corrosion resistant materials and suitable protective measures are discussed, as applied to both flight hardware and associated ground support equipment. This paper presents in synoptic form, an analysis of the management problems being faced in making fuhlre manned spaceflight decisions. It is an attempt to view the manned space program in total perspective - its relationship to other scientific research, other national programs, the role of Congress, the President's role, industry's role, and then show their relative influence and impact on decisior, making for the Post-Apollo period. This report represents the consolidated instrumentation plan for employing optical and electronic data acquisition systems to monitor the performance and trajectory of the Apollo/Saturn 1B vehicle, AS-2 04/LM-1, during powered flight. Telemetry and electronic tracking equipment on board the vehicle, and data acquisition systems monitoring the flight are discussed. Flight safety instrumentation and vehicle data transmission are described, and geophysical information is provided. This plan reflects the general instrumentation coverage requirements set forth in the NASA Program Support Requirements Document (PSRD) for Apollo/Saturn 16, and the commitments of Eastern Test Range (ETR) Operations Directive (OD) No. 4206,dated 15 August 1967. This plan is not intended to conflict with or to supersede either document. The information presented in this document reflects planning concepts developed prior to October 1, 1967. This report summarizes a study (by North American Aviation, Space Division) of Manned Interplanetary Flyby Missions to Venus and Mars during the period from 1975 to 1982. [The study was a broad but penetrating technical investigation of using a manned flight system for planetary exploration.] The results, along with previously known aspects of manned Mars and Venus flyby missions, vehicles, and systems, were integrated into total mission-system capable of performing a realistic and meaningful planetary exploration program. Manned Planetary Missions are feasible. Attractive multiplanet flyby missions can be performed by Saturn/Apollo systems. However, injected payload and mission requirements developed within the guidelines and assumptions of this study cannot be met with modified S-II or S-IV stages when used with the standard Saturn V Earth-launch vehicle. When using an Earth orbit assembly mode and an uprated Saturn Earth launch vehicle for application to manned planetary flyby missions, the launch vehicle should have a payload capability (2-stage to low Earth orbit) of 400,000 pounds or more for use with M(S)-IVB planetary injection stages. Manned planetary flyby missions provide a means of combining the favorable aspects of both manned and unmanned missions into a unique and highly effective planetary exploration mission-system capable of providing major significant inputs to the scientific and engineering questions concerning the interplanetary medium, our Sun, and our neighboring planets Venus and Mars. This revised edition of the Launch Vehicle Engines Project Development Plan supersedes the issue dated July 1, 1965. Significant changes which have been made are:- Removal of classified data to permit publication as an unclassified document; - Removal of material applicable to the RL-10 Engine Project which was transferred to the Lewis Research Center effective May 1, 1966; - Elimination of detailed schedules which quickly become obsolete; - Punched for maintenance in loose-leaf 3-ring binders and for ease in updating material through issuance of replacement sheets.
