Seilmis OoiVy Fads 3 - Wed., Jan. 15,1M4, Missile program faces battle By ALVIN B. WEBB JR. United Press International HOUSTON (UPI) - The intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), like taxes and medical care for the aged, can depend on a leap - year lambasting at the hands of presidential aspirants. The United States, through its Defense Department, is spending nearly S18 billion to develop, build, arm and deploy about 1,100 Atlas, Titan-1, Titan-2 and Minuleman ICBMS throughout the Western hemisphere. And with that kind of cash to account for, defense and military officials are jolly well sensitive to criticism. Power, accuracy, quick reaction and human reliability determine how close an ICBM system conies to 100 per cent dependability. U. S. missiles have the power. An early-model Atlas still holds the world record of 9.054 miles. The Titan-2 theoretically could travel halfway around the globe. And even the little Min­ uleman "instant ICBM" is getting enough muscle to reach any target in the Soviet Union. Top Secret Accuracy is a matter of heaviest secrecy. But Atlas missiles are known to have hit within Hi miles of targets at ranges or more than 6,000 miles, and U. S. ICBM accuracies today are scored "in terms of yards rather than miles," informed sources said. The Air Force expects to have its minuteman "shooting eye" so sharp that, within a year or so, it could hit a 10- square - foot target with the equivalent of 1 million tons of TNT over a range spanning one- third of the earth's circumference. Even the Skybolt air-launched missile proved it could land a 400-pound warhead within a mile of a target at a range of nearly 1,000 miles — and that program was killed because it was not good enough. In terms of reaction — ability to get into the air before an enemy missile wipes out the launching site — dependability of the Atlas and Titan-1 rockets is questionable. Each must be loaded with liquid oxygen, a time - consuming process that would make their chances of getting off the ground on the maximum 30-minute notice expectable quite marginal. Others Reliable But alongside the 129 Atlases and 54 Titan-1, there are 54 Titan-2 rockets and about 350 Min­ uleman missiles on station today. Theoretically, the Minuteman could be launched on 32 seconds' notice and the Titan-2 with a few minutes of preparation. Informed sources said the quick - reaction systems have proved to be "quite reliable." But the "system" that, above all. controls the great ICBM complex is the human element —and it seems likely that a full measure of its dependability could be taken only under conditions of an all-out war. In which case, it would become a moot point. BEST SELLERS Compiled By Publisher!.
