Abstract : Immediately after the removal of the United States Air Force's guided missile program from Wendover Field, Utah to Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico in March 1947, the problem of conflicts with a similar program being conducted by the Ordnance Department of the Army at the adjacent White Sands Proving Ground was anticipated. The need for the coordination of firing schedules and testing instrumentation to secure the most efficient use of the combined Holloman-White Sands range was acknowledged the following July in a memorandum prepared by the respective commanding officers of the two establishments.
