The mast, being developed to meet the requirements of specification SCL-4296B, is basically a revised and improved version of the earlier Mast AB-864 G developed to meet specification SCL-4296A. The primary objectives of this program are 1 to reduce the mast weigh and overall size, 2 to decrease the erection and repackaging time and 3 assure greater personnel safety. Manufacturing drawings have been prepared on major assemblies and components. Fabrication of the launcher is well underway. Fabrication and testing of the sample mast sections has been accomplished. The final design of the male stud portion has been selected. Author
