  • Description

    A new test facility to test Minuteman I missiles has been turned over to the Air Force Logistics Command Detachment at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.

    The facility, first of its kind in the Air Force, uses a Minuteman silo with the launch control and test control facilities above the ground.

    An inert missile inserted in the silo can be subjected to a variety of tests of electrical and mechanical systems. The facility will isolate and correct any engineering deficiencies that might occur during the lifetime of the missile.

    In addition, the test unit can create problems to test missile systems, and will provide a complete range of reliability determinations for the weapon.
