Abstract : The report outlines basic test objectives, general test plans and schedules, and hardware and manpower requirements. The principle objective of the battleship missile test program at No. 2 test stand is to perform tests pertaining to the problems anticipated and encountered in the B missile flight program, particularly second stage flight, with later expansion to 'C' configuration problems. The general approach to the ultimate test objective is intended to be a detailed and cautious exploration of the unknowns involved in B Missile flight operation; yet the program is to remain progressive.
