Abstract : A siloed missile facility was occupied over a fortnight for the purpose of determining site related limitations for conducting a long-term geokinetic study. The study focused on the ground-silo-missile mount transmissibility characteristics and the field evaluation of prototype hardware. Broadband motion measurements were made of the effects of near-site loading, explosive generated motions, and environmental motions peculiar to the site. Results are presented in spectral formats. Study objectives have been met; the implementation for a long-term geokinetic siloed missile study is practicable. (Author)
