Abstract : The primary purpose of Phase III of the Golden Ram program was to prove under operational conditions the modified equipment and changed procedures that had been developed during Phases I and II. Some of the major goals of Phase III discussed include: Evaluation of the weapon system's capability for detecting and correcting nonready conditions during first-readiness state and countdown; Verification that a nonready condition would cause the launch sequence to be arrested; Verification that the aerospace ground equipment would display the actual readiness of the weapon system throughout the entire missilereceipt-to-launch sequence; Verification that instructions and training are explicit and compatible with operational manning concepts; and the evaluation of the techniques and procedures used to prepare operating ground equipment for missile receipt and to prepare the missile for launch.
