Abstract:

Several applications of the Long-Line-Loiter concept were tested during the period June 1968 to December 1970. The test program used fixed-wing, tow aircraft to place and retrieve remote masses from ground and air positions. Supplies and equipment required to support the research activities and provide for a safe and successful research program included off the shelf commercial items and unique hardware designed and fabricated for a specific test. Described and discussed are the various types of equipment used, ranging from airplanes to lines, the methods used to achieve successful test results, and precautions taken against safety hazards. The advantages and disadvantages of the different types of equipment and supplies are presented to aid in the selection of these items for future research. Author
