Abstract : This report describes the instrumentation planned to support flight testing of the PG-1A missiles utilized in conjunction with the Space program at PMR. The second stage vehicle measurements are transmitted by the second stage vehicle telemetry, and can be found in the Flight Test Directives published prior to each flight. The instrumentation configuration for this program has been established as a result of the test objectives and systems analyses. Details of the missile areas and associated instrumentation including the satellite vehicle have been summarized in the discussion of missile instrumentation. In order to present a more complete picture of the data which will be available to support analysis and evaluation of the flight test of these missiles, the various external (range) sources of flight test data are discussed in conjunction with the above missile and GSE instrumentation. For a detailed description of the various missile systems, articles, and test program, see the Flight Test Plan for each program. Each data gathering system including the GD/A telemeter, range instrumentation systems, and landline instrumentation system is discussed and may be found in Section 3. (Author)
