Transportability of Space Systems Equipment 660707
The Air Force Space Systems Division's continued development of equipments for the space program is producing problems in engineering for transportability that are even more challenging than those faced in the development of the missile family. The large solid rocket motor (SRM) program's experience in 120-156 in. solid motor transportation and handling will be outlined in this paper. The current state-of-the-art and the anticipated requirements for the future will be discussed as well as emphasizing the impact of transportability resolutions upon program management. The measures implemented in the Air Force Systems Command's 375 Series Manuals to integrate the Engineering for Transportability Program into the design engineering process will be summarized.
