Abstract : During the 32 months' period of performance on this contract, ASEC has actively participated in numerous sounding rocket projects, balloon projects and a space shuttle project. The system engineering support rendered to various AFGL science and engineering branches included engineering design, design analysis, test planning and test management and reporting, field engineering, equipment fabrication and installation, and development and production of program documentation. A central data depository was maintained to record the technical activities in each project. Through co-location of the majority of the ASEC support team within AFGL facilities, daily communication was efficiently and quickly executed. The minimization of distribution time for multiple iteration of various documentation maximized productivity for the both AFGL and ASEC personnel.
