  • spc_horn_000065_000085.pdf

    The summary notes, "In 1960, research work was begun to develop new guidance concepts for the Saturn space vehicles. [...] This paper presents the basics of the Iterative Guidance Law developed for Saturn launch vehicles to meet these new requirements of space age guidance. The development of the Iterative Guidance Law and the results and ideas presented in this paper are due primarily to Mr. Helmut J. Horn and his associates in the Dynamics Analysis and Flight Mechanics Division of the Aero-Astrodynamics Laboratory." Marked "Research Review, OK" in the upper right corner of the first page. The document includes corrections and additions to the text in red pencil.

    The abstract notes, "This paper describes the Automatic Saturn V Page Test System. The system is used to evaluate microminiature Unit Logic Device (ULD) circuits. A page is an assembly consisting of a magnesium- lithium frame, an input-output connector, test points, and multilateral printed circuit boards that interconnect the IUDs into logic circuits. The test system automatically performs tests for shorted voltages and shorted diodes, static logic function, and pulse function."

    The foreword states "In this chronology, Air Force manned space flight activity is viewed from the perspective of the ballistic missile development agency - the Air Research and Development Command's Western Development Division, later re-named the Air Force Ballistic Missile Division. Due to resource limitations at the Space Systems Division historical office, research for this chronology has been generally limited to materials available in the files of that office. All documents cite in the notes which follow each entry are located in the archives of the Historical Division, Office of Information, Space Systems Division, in Los Angeles California." There are handwritten notes throughout.

  • metmeawitpropeg_081707093957.pdf

    Presentation at the Northeast Electronics Research and Engineering Meeting, Boston, Massachusetts, November 4, 1965. Ernest Stuhlinger, Director, Research Projects Laboratory, George C. Marshall Space Flight Center (NASA), Huntsville, Alabama.; INTRODUCTION: The prime objective of Project Pegasus is to measure, in the vicinity of the earth, the meteoroid penetration frequency in aluminum sheets of thicknesses which approach those of space capsule walls. Plans for the project were initiated at NASA in 1962 by the Office of Advanced Research and Technology and the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center. Throughout the project, members of the Langley Research Centers supported the project with experiments and advice.

    The abstract states "A telemetry system is a device to transfer information from an inaccessible to an accessible location. A constant input to a telemetry system yields outputs that are distributed according to some density function. A linear change in this constant input may yield a nonlinear change in output. The theory of statistics and experimental design may be applied to the data received from a flight to evaluate the inflight accuracy, linearity, and precision of various telemetry systems. This paper explains the analytical concepts used in postflight analysis of Instrument Unit telemetry systems. It also presents the method for interpreting the results of these analytical techniques."

  • Casecomp_091907132002.pdf

    "The Case for Compatibility" is a paper by Robert L. Smith, Jr., who worked in Quality and Reliability Assurance Laboratory at George C. Marshall Space Flight Center. The summary states, "Ever since the use of missiles and space launch vehicles began, questions have existed in every program regarding the similarity between upstream (e.g., manufacturing, static firing ) and launch site checkout equipment. Programs have existed which utilized nearly identical equipment for both uses; other programs have existed in which any resemblance of the equipment was probably coincidental. Many factors have entered the final decisions, not the least of which were economic and schedule considerations, and, in some instances, the organizational structure of the developer."

  • Binder1_080108093849.pdf

    The Abstract states "The four checkout systems developed and utilized by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for acceptance checkout of the Saturn V launch vehicle stages and instrument unit are described. The vehicle's characteristics, test policies, equipment design criteria, and operational factors are reviewed. Following a general description of each checkout system, this paper presents a brief definitive description of each major subsystem test station. These test systems are used for post-manufacturing and post-static firing acceptance checkout. The section related to the S-II stage includes several representative flow diagrams and descriptions of automatic tests. To present in detail the large volume of information describing these four checkout systems would require the writing of four papers."
