Abstract:

The activity during this report period was primarily concerned with the direct pre-flight and flight support of twenty-four 24 free balloon and seven 7 tether balloon missions at Holloman AFB and various remote locations. Extensive effort was also made in upgrading the Building 850 Control Center configuration for a more efficient operation while also generating up-to-data documentation. The telemetry room computer equipment was reconfigured with major changes in both hardware and software systems. The telemetry van computer system was also upgraded to the same level of support as the telemetry room system. A continuing effort was made to improve the quality of support given to Air Force Geophysics Laboratory and to the other agencies and users involved in the balloon operations as well as to enhance the utilization of the equipment and facilities at AFGL and Holloman AFB.
