By L. R. Mccreight

Abstract

The system is to be used under low gravity conditions aboard a sounding rocket. Two complete flight qualified units, each of which includes four individually controllable furnaces capable of operation to as high as 1600 C, were developed with operating and control panels, associated cables, tools, and some spare supplies. Drawings, operating manuals, a user's computer program and reports and papers describing the work and equipment are presented
