This report reviews the activities of the Environmental Evaluation Section during the latter half of 1959 and describes the additions or modifications made to the environmental testing equipment in the laboratory. Activities were largely centered around testing for the Able programs, although technical support was furnished for a number of laboratory projects being carried out by other elements of the company, as well as for various aspects of the ballistic missile program. The capability for virtually all types of testing was increased, with particular regard to equipment and instrumentation for vibration testing. Several devices were designed and fabricated in the laboratory to fill special needs, at considerable monetary saving. Author
