Abstract : Revision C is being published to include provisions for evaluating the propellant loading control system in Phase III tests. The test program at RTS is planned with minimum interference with the primary objective of developing the facility and missile propellant loading system in support of 10C Complex 65-1. The Acoustica propellant loading control system will be only monitored in Block I of Phase III tests. During test runs (5) and (6) of Block II the Acoustica System will control the propellant loading. Block III of Phase III tests includes environmental protection equipment tests, additional Acoustica propellant utilization and loading system tests in support of 10C installations. (Author)
