Abstract : The guided missile proximity fuze, T3019, S/N 1, was flown aboard Bomarc missile, S/N 624-17, on 20 March 1958 at the Atlantic Missle Range. Neither fuze unit was tested, the primary because it was not carried to target intercept, the secondary because the missile's target-seeker did not acquire the target. Operation of the arming programmer unit was proper. A brief description of the T3019 fuze is presented. (Author)
