Abstract:

The objective of this test was to determine the relative safety of personnel in several selected areas during an IM-99A launching. Data were collected relative to free-air temperature, noise, and toxic gases which contribute to personnel hazards. Based on the analysis of the data obtained by physical measurements and from test animals, survivability of personnel remaining at five of the seven test locations in the launch area during missile launchings would be 100. However, personnel remaining in the launch area may experience both temporary and permanent ear damage and irritations of the respiratory tract resulting from toxic gas exposure. Author
