Abstract : The guided missile proximity fuze T3019, S/N 13, was flown aboard Bomarc missile S/N XY-4 against an inbound X-10 missile on 24 September 1958 at the Atlantic Missile Range. This was the thirteenth of a series of T3019 fuzes to be flown. The over-all fuze was rated no test since it was not designed to operate against a small target. The primary fuze unit was rated no test because of an excessive miss-distance. Operation of the secondary fuze unit was proper since it generated a fire-pulse in accordance with the range data that was received. 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)
