Abstract : The guided missile proximity fuze T3019, S/N 9 was flown aboard Bomarc missile S/N XY-1 on 7 August 1958 at the Atlantic Missile Range, Cape Canaveral, Florida. This was the ninth of a continuing series of T3019 fuzes to be flown. Failure of the missile to enter its terminal dive prevented a test of the fuze units; consequently the units were rated no test. Operation of the arming programmer unit was proper since it performed all of the functions that were required. A tabulated summary of T3019 flight test results to date is included. (Author)
