The report is principally concerned with three major projects. These are the Haystack antenna, the optical instrumentation of the KC-135 aircraft, and the Lincoln experimental communications satellite. The Haystack Hill experimental facility, formally dedicated on 8 October, is undergoing mechanical system testing and debugging, and final construction work within the radome and about the building is being completed. The major portion of Phase III of the optical instrumentation of the KC-135 aircraft under the PRESS Program was completed successfully before the plane departed for Honolulu on 11 November. Fabrication and environmental testing of the series of experimental communications satellites known as LES constitute the major effort of the Division at this time.
