TEST
OBJECTIVES
AND
SYSTEM
PRIORITIES
Test
objectives
for MA- .- The
test objectives
for
this mission
are
concernedwith the Mercury capsule systems, the Atlas booster, theMercury
network,
and capsule recovery. Since this mission will be
the
first Mercury-Atlas launch along the Mercury
network,
it will
be
used to demonstrate and evaluate the capability of the Mercurynetwork
to
perform
the
intended flight control
and
data collectionfunctions and to evaluate the procedures used in performing theflight control functions.First-order
test
objectives.
-
Capsule.
-
(1)
Demonstrate
the
integrity
of the
Mercury capsulestructure, ablation shield, and afterbody shingles for anormal reentry.
(2)
Evaluate
the
performance
of the
Mercury capsulesystems for the entire flight.
(3)
Determine
the
capsule motions during
a
normalreentry.Determine the Mercury capsule vibration environmentduring flight.(5) Demonstrate the compatibility of the Mercury capsule
escape
systems with the Mercury- tlas systems.Booster.
-
(1) Determine the ability of the Atlas booster toreleasetheMercury capsuleat thefree-flight insertionconditions defined by the guidance equations.(2) Evaluate the
closed-
loop performance of the
Abort
Sensing and Implementation System.
(3) Evaluate the
aerodynamic loading, vibrationalcharacteristics, and structural integrity of the Atlas LO
boil-
off valve, tank dome, capsule adapter, and associatedstructures.
