Abstract : This document contains summaries and extracts of techniques employed by various Range Commanders Council (RCC) member ranges and associate member agencies in analyzing unguided rocket programs to obtain a safety solution to rocket launches. Unique techniques that may be beneficial to other ranges will be described in detail. Any recommendations supporting the use of various techniques are also included. The intent of this informal report is to provide, in a single document, a compendium of rocket testing approaches for ranges and potential rocket programs for reference, planning and evolving new support techniques.
