Abstract:

Effective 12 November 1969 the basic contract was subsequently extended to modify and refurbish the two rocket payloads to be compatible with the redesigned nose cone the modified vehicle was designated the Black Brant IVB, Mod. 1. The Churchill Research Range, Ft. Churchill, Manitoba, Canada operated under the sponsorship of the Canadian Research Council was selected as a launch site because of its close proximity to the magnetic North Pole. A discussion of the modifications to the VLF payload package will be found in Section 3.0 while Appendix C is an account of the field trip to the Churchill Research Range.
