Abstract : TRW Space Technology Laboratories (formerly Space Technology Laboratories, Inc.) was awarded a contract by ESD to perform a study of the entire test environment problem for these classes of missions and tests. The primary objective was the definition of what the global test environment should be in the 1965 to 1970 period and the development of an implementation plan permitting the timely and efficient attainment of the recommended configuration. Emphasis was placed on providing the capability to support the requirements imposed by the many programs involving missiles, large boosters, and spacecraft to be tested in the 1965 to 1970 period.
