Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 3)


Modern defense measures have necessitated the advancement of missile testing programs from the stage of small experimental units to an all-out race to test and perfect full scale prototype missiles. Fuel components must now be available in large quantity and convenient form at all missile testing and launching stations. This prototype missile testing program has established the first large scale direct usage of liquid oxygen.
