Abstract : The guided missile proximity fuze T3019, S/N 12 was flown aboard Bomarc missile S/N XY-3 on 3 September 1958 at the Atlantic Missile Range. This was the twelfth of a continuing series of T3019 fuzes to be flown. A power failure occurred in the missile during its climb phase, which caused the missile to destroy itself before reaching cruise altitude. Consequently, the fuze units could not be tested. 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)
