Abstract:

Certain major interrelationships are reviewed existing between the various branches of engineering concerned with the design and operation of unguided multi-stage rocket vehicle systems. IT IS STRONGLY EMPHASIZED THAT THE ATTAINMENT OFA HIGH DEGREE OF PROBABILITY OF SUCCESS FOR THE FIRST FLIGHT IS A RELATIVELY SIMPLE MATTER IN SOME OF THE APPLIED BRANCHES OF ENGINEERING. The suggestion is made that throughout the entire project the overall approach is continually reviewed to ascertain the effect of each detal on the whole program, so that no single design feature, fabrication process or other concomitant may seriously affect the success of the mission.
