OMSF Program Status Review August 1965.; Edition "A" OMSF Program Status Review October 1965.; Edition "A" Paper from the 1965 Cryogenic Engineering Conference at Rice University, Houston, Texas, paper K-4. The abstract states, "This paper covers the cryogenic propellant and gaseous application to the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center Saturn Programs. Emphasis is placed on the overall application and the resultant logistic considerations. The planning of facilities, storage, and transportation required to ensure an adequate supply of cryogenic fluids when needed is traced from the engine and stage requirements. The entire cycle of technical requirements, estimating the quantities required from production and management of the program is developed, spacecraft application and other trends that affect cryogenic production are reviewed."

The management techniques described in the paper support the Saturn S-IVB Program which is being conducted for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Marshall Space Flight Center. 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 purpose of this management plan is to set forth the channels 1 and methods used by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for the development of the SATURN Vehicle System, This plan is based i on past experience and proven management principles of the Development Operations Division, The attached figures illustrate the plan.

This document is the second annual progress report of the Saturn S-II Program. The report provides a summary and technical analysis of results of contract work by the Space and Information Systems Division of North American Aviation, Inc., for the period 1 July 1963 through 30 June 1964. This document was prepared in compliance with NASA contract NAS7-200. This document revises and supersedes the Saturn V Project Development Plan, dated March, 1967. Approved: Arthur Rudolph, Manager, Saturn V Program; Samuel C. Phillips, Major General, USAF, Director, Apollo Program. This documents outlines the S & ID plan to fulfill the requirements of Contracts NAS7-80 and NAS7-200 for the design, development and manufacture of the Saturn S-II stage.; APPROVED by R E. Greer, Vice President and S-II Program Manager.; This reissue supersedes all previous issues of this report.; FOREWORD: The S-II stage is 81.5 feet in length and 33 feet in diameter, with a usable propellant capacity of 970,000 pounds, The S-II propellants are fully cryogenic-liquid oxygen at -279 F and liquid hydrogen at -423 F. Its five-engine cluster provides one million pounds of thrust. The stage is a cylindrical structure of relatively light weight with a shell designed to resist all loads without the use of stiffening members. Its skin is of welded aluminum panels, as are the elliptical bulkheads of the fuel and oxidizer tanks. Unique to its design is the common bulkhead that separates the -423 F liquid hydrogen from the -247 F liquid oxygen. The common bulkhead - a sandwich of two 33-foot diameter aluminum domes separated by an insulating filler of honeycomb - eliminates the weight penalty that would be imposed by the second bulkhead in more conventional design. This document describes the S & ID program plan for development of the S-II stage and associated a support equipment. This Engineering Capabilities Presentation lists the competence and capability that has been demonstrated by the Space Support Division of Sperry Rand Corporation while fulfilling contractual commitments in the aerospace industry. This is a preliminary presentation; the preparation of a complete capabilities history of the division is currently in the developmental stage. The Capabilities Experience Summary is comprised of ten categories. e.g. Category 1 - Aeronautics, etc. The capabilities reported herein were performed by the Space Support Division under Contract NAS8-20055 to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, George C. Marshall Flight Center, Astrionics Laboratory, Huntsville, Alabama. This is a speech given to fellow purchasing agent regarding purchasing and contracting. This memo constitutes a request for all MSFC elements to prepare and submit information as scheduled in Enclosure 1. This schedule lists only key interface dates from one organization to another. It will be the responsibility of I-RM and R-RM to implement internal schedules compatible with Enclosure 1. This paper identifies the support functions performed by MSFC through the Launch Information Exchange Facility (LIEF) during the Apollo Saturn Mission Operations and other facilities required to carry out these functions. It also identifies mission specific documents required for operation. Note that page 20 is missing. This paper presents a light, but reverent, discussion of some of the Douglas operational experiences on the Saturn V/S-IVB stage. Certain relevant aspects of earlier work on the Thor intermediate range ballistic missile, the Saturn I S-IV stage, and the Uprated Saturn I S-IVB stage are also discussed.; Aeronautic and Space Engineering and Manufacturing Meeting, Los Angeles, Calif., Oct. 7 - 11, 1968. This paper presents some case histories in which reliability prediction plays an important role. 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. Binders are not furnished. The information in this document is current to January 1, 1967.; The Launch Vehicle Engines Project Development Plan is established in accordance with requirements of NASA General Management Instruction 4-1-1, Planning and Implementation of NASA Projects, and OMSF Instruction MP 9320.044, Preparation and Revision of Program/Project Development Plans (PDP's). The Plan, herein referred to as the PDP, has been developed within the scope of current Apollo Projects Approval Documents (PADS) and will be maintained by the Engine Program Manager to identify program requirements, responsibilities, tasks, and resources, and time phasing of major actions required to accomplish the Engine Program. This was found folded inside Configuration Management. Taken from Defense Industry Bulletin, June 1968. Includes an organizational chart and an accompanying bibliography.
