THE OTTAWA HERALD Tuesday, April 16, 1963 Always In A Dilemma At Missile Test Site CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —Early this month, a crewman on the missile tracking ship Twin Palls Victory died while the vessel was 200 —miles down range to support a Pershing rocket test. Ilie ship left its station to bring the body to Cape Canaveral. It would not be able to return in time to track the missile scheduled for firing the following day. Should the shot be postponed until the Twin Falls Victory could return down range, or could the missile be launched without the support of the ship? The problem landed in the lap of the Schedule Control Branch of the Air Force Missile Test Center 1 . The branch is headed by Maj. Walter H. Flint, a veteran of many scheduling dilemmas on the range. "We discussed the situation with the Army and other Pershing people and they decided they could launch without the ship," Flint said. Officials decided data received by Cape Canaveral tracking systems and from planes and down range stations would be sufficient. Matters don't always work out that smoothly for Flint and the four officers and clerical help in his office. Weather, technical troubles with the rocket or with any of thousands of items of equipment along the 10,000-mile-long range sometimes wipe out a mis- sile shot, which then has to be reset. If launchingB were all the Schedule Control Branch had to worry about the job would be a cinch. Last year 154 missiles were fired from the Cape. But the total number of tests conducted on the range was 11,007, and all had to be scheduled. Some missiles require as many as 30 support tests before they are fired. These include fueling operations, checks of communica- tions and tracking gear, telemetry tests and practice countdowns. International dipomacy also is involved in range scheduling. An intercontinental range missile fired past Cape Town into the Indian Ocean requires diplomatic clearance with South Africa a month in advance. Some satellite launchings involve notifying certain countries beforehand. These negotiations are handled by the State Department. Shipping and air lanes in a safe ty area around Cape Canavera must be cleared when a launch ing is imminent. Picket ships, planes, radar and an observer with field glasses atop a Cape Canaveral lighthouse watch for commercial ships and warn them away. In Uniform Ottawan In Signal Exercise Army Sp-4 James I.
