C J Holden: 278. Are We Anticipating the Data Needs of Astronauts?. 1961.



This paper was presented as a panel discussion at the Twentieth National Conference of the Society of Aeronautical Weight Engineers at Akron, Ohio, May 15 – 18, 1961. The subject of this panel discussion is ‘Weight Management for Orbital and Re-entry Operations.’ It is the intention to highlight a flight management problem which promises to become a critical concern of space crews during the planning and conduct of operations in spaces. This is the matter of maintaining cognizance and management of vehicle mass characteristics so that they and the performance judgments for succeeding phases of powered flight are compatible with each other. Discussions were held which help clarify the problem by developing ideas, questions and conclusions.
