Abstract : The primary additional objectives of this phase of testing were to: Verify the adequacy of the Mast 3A fix as actually constructed on the full-scale mast; Obtain correlation data for full-scale wind studies; and Obtain test results on a new payload model used with the Atlas-Agena combination. Investigation of the effects of a spring-mass propellant slosh simulator was a secondary objective. (Author)
