SECTIONH A. ENGINEERING 1. Vehicle a. Structural Design A center Algol manhole cover was designedto permit access into the vehicle for 12-51-2 configuration. Factory and field liaison continued on an as-neededbasis. b. Vehicle Control and Instrumentation Vehicle 12-51-1 field checkout has been completed, along with interface and integrated tests with the payload. A spin motor rate detection circuit was addedfor the roll rate gyro. Qualification testing has been completed on all componentsand subsystems, including the range safety subsystem battery and safe/arm units. Detail design for vehicle 12-51-2 is nearing completion. Checkout procedures are being prepared. c. Reaction Control andAerodynamic Control Systems Activity in these areas was confined to preparation of 12-51-1 vehicle for launch. Activity for December Support of launch operations at WSMRwill continue. Subsystem design for vehicle 12-51-2 will be completed and along with procedures will be reviewed with the NASA. Subsystemcheckout on vehicle 12-51-2 will be started at SanDiego.

Weight Analysis Monthly Weight and Balance Report No. 30 was published. Report No. 31, incorporating the final weight statement for vehicle 12-51-1 and addingvehicle 12-51-3, has been prepared.

Activity for December A memo report on Mission J (A-002} trajectory dispersion studies will be published. Results of the interaxis coupling studies (five-degree-of-freedom) for Mission J will be reported. Analog anddigital simulations of Mission N (A-003) and P (A-004) will be conductedto establish ballast requirements, RCSrequirements (or not), andpreliminary gains for autopilot control and pitch command. 4. Reliability andQuality Control a. Design Review and Monitoring Convair andvendor drawings and functional test and operation checkout procedures are continually reviewed for adequacyof quality control and reliability assurance provisions. A total of 39 Convair andvendor drawings or drawing changeswere reviewed during the month. Data documents from 27 vendors were reviewed. Data requirements include drawings; specification, reliability failure mode analysis, reliability predictions; service experience data; qualifications test reports; status, operating, and checkoutdata; and quality-control program data. b. ComponentSelection andVendor Monitoring Program During the month, emphasis continued on selection of reliable components. A total of 67 advancebills of material (ABMs) were reviewed to ensure that vendors would be required to comply with adequatereliability and quality control provisions. A total of 46 purchase orders were reviewed. Only vendors with demonstrated ability to produce reliable componentsof the type desired were awardedpurchase orders.

c.

Failure Analysis Status of all failure analyses reports (FARs) is summarized as follows: Total FARs initiated during reporting period Total FARs initiated to date FARs closed to date FARs remaining open 16 164 132 32

All inspection reports requiring material review and action are summarized each month in the Monthly Quality Report. d. Reliability Analysis and Measurement Program Updatedfailure analysis and reliability estimates are included in the Quarterly Reliability Status Report. e. Test Activities (1) The Repco command receiver has successfully completed qualification testing at Convair. (2) The Gulton battery to be usedwith the WSMRcommand destruct system is continuing in qualification testing. (3) The hydraulic actuator assembly qualification testing has been successfully completed. (4) Partial re-qualification testing of the American Wiancko rate gyro packagehas been initiated. This testing is the result of packageredesign by American Wianeko.

Surveillance A weekly surveillance of all inspection and factory areas, including segregatedstockrooms for Little Joe II material, for conformance to Inspection Check Lists is continuing. Corrective and preventive action is being initiated as required.

SECTIONIII A. MANUFACTURING 1. Material

An all-out effort is continuing in support of Vehicle 12-51-1 at WSMR. As of this date, all production material/parts have been shipped and are available at the base. There are a few spare items still duebut they are expected to be shippedby 4 December 1964. The majority of items required for Vehicle 12-51-2 have been released and purchase orders placed. Substantial quantities of parts havebeen received and are being received daily. All material is being handledon an expedite basis. A complete report of all items released hasbeen prepared by Engineering Work Order packagefor follow-up and scheduling purposes. It is anticipated that the shortage count will be high for a time, but will decrease rapidly to a point where a small number of items will fall in the problem category. Generally, parts released for 12-51-2 are electrical hardware type with short lead times. There still are some problems on delivery of certain hydraulic componentssuch as the Randall actuator and the Markite potentiometer but sufficient quantities of these items are expected by 9 December 1964. 2. Tooling

The planning required to rebuild "Little WSMR"has been released. Provisions have also been made in the system to maintain "Little WSMR" compatible with "Big WSMR". Planning for the 12-51-2 vehicle, the launcher andthe GSEis being processed in accordancewith program schedules. Premium time is being required in both the mechanical and the electrical planning sections to maintain schedule requirements. December Activity Planning will continue to support the schedule requirements for 12-51-1 and 12-51-2 firings. It is expected that premium time will be required for both the processing of the engineering releases and in support of the factory liaison.

Engineering design and installations were completed for incorporation of roll rate gyro rotational speedmonitoring capability. An additional Vidar voltmeter was installed in the dual console and facility circuitry was modified for this function. Tests were conductedto obtain RCSmotor control valve operating current signature for all installed valves. Modifications to provide an exponential pitch-over input signal to the inflight instrumentation system were completed. Installation of the RangeSafety Destruct System was completed and a lanyard pull test (OCI 12-83218)was accomplished. Functional testing of all flight componentswas completed with checkouts of the AN/DRW-ll receivers. Buildup of TM trailer No. 2 was completed with the installation of Sanbornrecording equipment anddiscriminators. NASA validation was completed and the trailer was placed in operation. Continued assistance was provided to NASAfor operation of both telemetry trailers on a two-shift basis, to support spacecraft and launch vehicle checkout operations. Coaxial connectors for telemetry transmitters A and B were reworked to correct antennaproblems. Functional testing and calibration of spare componentswas continued throughout the report period. 2. Operations Procedures and Support

Review, revision or rewrite of Operational CheckoutInstructions continued throughout the report period, as required to support program scheduling. The Launch Vehicle CountdownProcedure was completed and issued. The Test Director's countdown, which integrates the Spacecraft countdown OTP-010 and the LaunchVehicle Operations Manual OCI 12-08901, andthe integrating documentfor OTP-008 and OCI 12-86019, Integrated Checkouts, were approved. A Preliminary Flight Readiness Report was presented to the Flight Readiness Review Board at Houston, on 23 November.
