Abstract : This report contains the results of the third extravehicular crew transfer design and development test series whose objectives were to evaluate Gemini B EV crew transfer equipment, items requiring zero 'g' evaluation, crew ingress, and provide familiarization training for one MOL crewman. The Gemini B segment of the Extravehicular Crew Transfer Vehicle and the Ingress-Egress Vehicle were installed in a KC-135 at Wright-Patterson AFB. A total of 95 maneuvers were completed in three flights. Four crewmen participated in the tests wearing MOL Training pressure suit assemblies. (Author)
