Abstract:

Results are presented of the Blue Scout Junior Flight 0-2, which was launched from Pt. Arguello, Pacific Missile Range, on 4 Dec. 1961. Although this flight as unsuccessful, data were obtained from FPS-16 skin track radar, which is accurate until second-stage burnout, and from TLM-18 signal strength data. Since no vehicle instrumentation was aboard this flight, causes of failure cannot be accurately determined. Motor and component performance is described as far as possible from the data available.
