Heat Shield Hatch Acceptance Test for Functional Fit at Temperature.
MCDONNELL CO ST LOUIS MO
Pagination or Media Count:
The heat shield hatch assembly for Gemini B is designed to provide access to the crew-transfer tunnel during the orbital phase of a mission. The hatch latching mechanism has been successfully tested previously at simulated altitude and temperature. The purpose of the testing described in this report was to demonstrate that there is an acceptable functional fit between the heat shield and the heat shield hatch at operating temperatures. Author
