Abstract : This manual has been published to familiarize operators with the field standard weight and force system, insofar as its direct application with the launcher weighing system currently used in the Atlas program. The FSWAF system has been designed to permit the application and recording of loads, by remote control, to a launcher frame. The primary purpose of the FSWAF system is to calibrate other force measuring systems. (Author)
