Abstract : A series of tests were conducted at the Point Loma Test Site evaluating the Pressurization Start Sequence for 'B' and 'C' Series. The testing was divided into two phases; the PCU evaluation phase for 'B' Series, and the airborne start phase for 'B' and 'C' Series missiles. The object was to devise and evaluate methods of improving the time response characteristics of the Pressurization Control Unit (7-09218) for 'B' Series missiles. (Author)
