A qualification program was conducted on the Spin Sensor Arming Device during which 40 units were fabricated and assembled, 34 were scheduled for a series of tests, and 32 were tested. Environmental tests on the first seven units clearly indicated problems with the Limit and Zero Stops. Engineering tests were conducted to evaluate new stop designs. Sixteen units with new stop configurations were successfully tested. Two additional units were flight tested on the E2-2 test vehicle with complete success. The Reliability and Safety Analysis was updated reflecting the changes to the arming device.
