Abstract : The guided missile proximity fuze, T3019, S/N 2, was flown aboard Bomarc missile, S/N 624-18 on 2 April 1958 at the Atlantic Missile Range. The primary fuze unit was not tested because it was not carried to target intercept. Operation of the secondary fuze unit was proper since it generated a fire pulse in accordance with the range data received from the target-seeker although range data was outside the requirements for secondary operation. Operation of the arming programmer unit was proper since it performed all of the functions that were required. (Author)
