Abstract:

The Phase II portion of the Series A missile autopilot testing program involved the Dynamics Group, the Servo-Mechanism Group, and the Systems Test Lab Group. Phase I testing was accomplished totally by the Systems Test Lab Group and is reported in References No. 1 and 2. Briefly, this consisted of obtaining data on the system response of that portion of the autopilot system which includes the servo amplifiers, the servo valves, the hydraulic actuators, the feedback transducers, and the associated hydraulic and electrical systems. The type of tests run under this phase were frequency response, transient response, and linearity response tests. Phase II testing was expanded to include the other groups mentioned above. The work areas were increased to include the Computer Lab and its analog facilities with space reserved for a flight table with gyro mounting capabilities. Personnel from the other groups operated the equipment in these areas and through telephone, signal light and closed circuit television, communications were maintained between the System Test Lab and the other facilities.
