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."
The document is an Instrument Society of America Symposium Preprint of the "Booster Instrumentation for Static Firing" by Marin A. Ferrario. "Booster Instrumentation for Static Firing" was included in the 10th National Aerospace Instrumentation Symposium which occured from May 4th - 6th at the Hotel Biltmore in New York, NY.
