Historical Note

Bellcomm, Inc was a subsidiary of the American Telephone and Telegraph (AT&T) established in 1963 for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Bellcomm was originally organized to provide NASA's Office of Manned Space Flight with technical and management advice for the Manned Space Flight Program. As the NASA-Bellcomm relationship evolved, the latter became directly responsible for systems engineering and analysis and assisted in the overall spacecraft integration for the Apollo program. Bellcomm's Technical Library provided company personnel with immediate access to technical reports and studies dealing with a wide variety of topic affecting the American space program. When the Apollo Program ended in 1972 the company also ceased operation and the library was transferred to the National Air and Space Museum (NASM).




Scope and Content Note

The collection, as it now exists, consists of engineering study reports and other documents covering all aspects of the United States space program, but relating primarily to the manned space flight program and the Apollo program in particular. Some portions of the original Bellcomm library, most notably books, were placed in the library collection of the NASM, now part of the Smithsonian Institution Libraries. The remaining material was turned over to the NASM Astronautics Department. [1]  

At that time some of the material in the collection was dispersed among the departmental files and some extraneous material was interfiled. Most notably, all reports originating at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) were removed for interfiling with a collection of JPL reports being assembled by the Astronautics department staff. During the processing of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Publications Collections (now National Air and Space Archives Accession XXXX-0612) in 1999, some 5½ cubic feet of material which could be positively identified as belonging to the Bellcomm Library was removed from the JPL Collection and returned to the Bellcomm Collection. During the processing of the Bellcomm Collection, items which could be determined not to have originated with Bellcomm were removed from the collection and some effort was made to retrieve Bellcomm material from several other collections of Astronautics/Space Science and Exploration/Space History materials. The resulting collection consists of 100 cubic feet of material.

The determination of whether to retain or retrieve an item was based primarily on date and markings on the document. Items postdating the transfer of the Bellcomm material to NASM (ca.1972) were automatically removed from the collection. Items bearing one of the several "Bellcomm Technical Library" stamps in use over the lifetime of the company were automatically included in the collection, while items bearing stamps from other NASM collections were removed. If no such stamps were present, a judgement was made based upon other markings. Some - but not all - stamped Bellcomm materials also have the report number or title hand-written on or near the spine; unstamped documents bearing similar hand-written report numbers have been retained or replevened, as appropriate. Therefore it is impossible at this date precisely to determine what documents were or were not present in the Library at the time of its transfer to the NASM; in addition a number of multi-volume reports remain incomplete.


1 The Astronautics Department later became the Department of Space Science and Exploration (SS&E). Currently it is the Department of Space History (DSH). [back]




Collection Organization

Several attempts were made to organize the Bellcomm material before it was transferred from SS&E to the NASM Archives Division. The most thorough of these attempts left two sections of the collection independently organized by corporate author and a third unorganized section. As the proposed corporate-author organization would cause documents relating to a single program to be separated based upon which contractor submitted the report while juxtaposing completely unrelated materials, this arrangement has been discarded in favor of a subject (program or study) arrangement.

Following a series of Bibliographies and General Reports, the materials are organized into five series based upon NASA's functional organization during much of the 1960s: Launch Vehicle Programs, Manned Space Flight Programs, Space Science and Applications (Planetary Reconnaissance and Earth-Orbiting Satellites), Tracking and Data Acquisition, and Advanced Research and Technology. Materials relating to military programs follow in a separate series.

Under each series, materials are arranged by study and/or project. Materials relating to specific missions follow general material relating to the project under which the mission was launched. As no reference has surfaced to date positively linking a specific study to a specific project or program, series assignments have been made based upon the study name. To assist researchers in locating a specific report, an index by manufacturer report number is been included in this finding aid. The series assignments in this finding aid should not be taken to represent the actual NASA program or project under which the report was originally funded.




Listing Format

All items are listed in the following format:

Title. (Individual Author(s); Corporate Author. Document Number. Date.)

Where a document is a stand-alone item, the title is given in quotation marks (" "). Volumes or subparts of such items are indented below the title. Documents which are part of a study are shown in a combination of bold and italic text in the following format:

Name of Study.
-Subpart of Study.
Title of document.
Volume or subpart of document.

Corporate authors are generally abbreviated. For an explanation of abbreviations, see Appendix 1. Document numbers and dates are shown the format utilized on the document. Additional information provided by the processing staff is shown in square brackets [ ]. Where information applied to all following subsidiary documents it is shown in the first instance only.

The term "presentation graphics" is herein used to describe booklets or books circulated at briefings or presentations containing the visual aids shown during the briefing or presentation. These are generally known by a variety of terms, including "briefing slides," "presentation charts," etc. The chosen term has been selected for consistency. Such booklet may or may not include text describing the graphics.

This example shows two documents, both of which were produced as part of A Study of the Development of a Basic Planetary Transportation Systems Model conducted by the General Dynamics Corporation. The first document is a booklet of presentation graphics (see above) titled Presentation of 30 January 1964, produced by K. A. Ehricke of the Astronautics Division of General Dynamics. The booklet has General Dynamics document number GD|A-AOK 65-001 and is dated 28 January 1964.

The second document is Volume I (Summary) of the Final Report of the Space Technology Analysis and Mission Planning substudy of the larger Transportation Systems Model study. The report as a whole was produced by the Astronautics Division of General Dynamics (no individual author is given) and is dated c.1965. Volume I is the Summary volume and is General Dynamics report number GD|A-AOK 65-001-1.

Subseries II.B.
Launch Vehicle Projects

This subseries consists of documents pertaining to projects intended to develop flight hardware for the United States space program. In some cases the project was cancelled before it reached flight - or even hardware - status, but the project involved design work to meet specific mission parameters. It is in this context that the Space Shuttle, normally considered a manned program, is included here. The materials are grouped into subseries arranged alphabetically by the name of the launch vehicle project. Unless otherwise note, within each project subseries documents are arranged chronologically.

12 1 "Launch Vehicle History." (C. R. James (ed.); Boeing Co. D2-24015-1. February 1, 1967) [thermofax original]

Subseries II.B.2. Atlas

In 1959 NASA began utilizing the Atlas ICBM to orbit small blunt-bodied spacecraft, modifying the missile into the Atlas Space Launch Vehicle (SLV). Most notably, four of the manned Mercury flights used Atlas D/Atlas SLV-3 as boosters. The Atlas was also paired with smaller boosters as upper stages, giving rise to Atlas-Able, Atlas-Agena, and Atlas-Centaur boosters.

Subseries II.B.3. Centaur

Work on Centaur began in 1956. Planned from the start as upper stage for the Atlas launch vehicle, Centaur was the first American booster to utilize liquid hydrogen propellant. Development problems delayed its introduction until mid-1965. During 1966-1968, the Centaur vehicle was used to launch the Surveyor series of lunar probes and continued in use into the Space Shuttle era.

Subseries II.B.4. Delta

Work on Delta began in 1959. Originally, Delta was to be an interim second stage for the Thor launch vehicle until the Scout and Vega boosters became available. In the end, however, Delta was the most frequently used booster in the Thor family in the 1960-1968 period, later becoming the most popular booster in the NASA stable.


12 9 "Project Delta - Third Stage and Spacecraft Preparation at AMR." (Douglas. July 1962)

Subseries II.B.5. Nova (Post-Saturn Launch Vehicle)

Nova was the largest of NASA's planned stable of launch vehicles. Nova was to be capable of launching a manned mission directly to lunar orbit. With NASA's selection of lunar rendezvous for Apollo in 1962 there was no immediate need for Nova and the project was cancelled in 1964.

Research and Technology Implications Report. (Martin. MARTIN-CR-66-33. July 1966.)


Subseries II.B.7. Saturn

The Saturn family of launch vehicles spanned the middle, in boost capacity, of NASA's planned stable of launch vehicles. Development of the Saturn family began in August 1958 at the Army Ballistic Missile Agency, where it was called Juno. In 1958 it was renamed Saturn and, in November, transferred to NASA control. With the decision to utilize lunar rendezvous for the Apollo program, the Saturn family became the launch vehicles for Apollo. Saturn IB and Saturn V launch vehicles were the boosters for all flights of the Apollo spacecraft, including the Skylab and Apollo-Soyuz Test Program launches.

Documents relating to the Saturn Program are grouped into subseries by general topic:

II.B.7.a. General Documents (1962-1966)

Subseries II.B.7.b. Saturn I/Saturn IB

The Saturn I (originally called the Saturn C-1) was the first of the Saturn family of launch vehicles. Two-stage Saturn I boosters (S-I first stage and S-IV second stage) were used to launch boilerplate Apollo capsules through 1965.

The Saturn IB (originally Saturn C-1B and Uprated Saturn I) grew from the cancellation of the Saturn C-2 vehicle in 1961. The Saturn IB was an upgraded Saturn I, with sufficient thrust to place a fully-configured Apollo capsule into Earth orbit. Two-stage Saturn IB boosters (S-IB first stage and S-IVB second stage) were used for the manned earth-orbital missions of the Apollo (non-Lunar Module flights), Skylab, and Apollo-Soyuz programs.

Subseries III.D.1.
Mercury Program

In 1958, Project Mercury was selected as the first American manned space program. Responsibility for the project was assigned to the NACA (later NASA), including vehicle design and astronaut selection. Mercury's primary objective was to place a manned vehicle safely in Earth orbit and safely recover both the man and vehicle. A secondary objective was to study human capabilities in the launch, orbit, and recovery environments. Delays in qualifying flight hardware pushed the initial manned mission back from 1960 to 1961, after which six manned missions were launched successfully through 1963. For a listing of Mercury launches, see Appendix 2. Documents within this subseries are arranged chronologically.

Gemini Program

Originally proposed in 1961 as a follow-on to Project Mercury, President Kennedy's call for a manned lunar landing before 1970 converted Project Gemini (originally Mercury Mark II) into a testbed for Project Apollo, the lunar landing program. The two-man Gemini crews practiced all the major elements necessary for the Apollo program, including long-duration space flight, orbital rendezvous and extravehicular activity. Development problems with the modified Titan ICBM launch vehicle (called the Gemini Launch Vehicle or GLV) delayed the first manned launch until 1965. Ten manned missions accomplished all of the project goals. For a listing of Project Gemini launches, see Appendix 3. Documents relating to the program in general are arranged chronologically followed by materials relating to specific Gemini missions organized by mission designation.

Subseries III.D.3.
Apollo Program

The Apollo Program was NASA's plan for manned lunar exploration, with landing scheduled to commence in the 1970s. With President Kennedy's call for a manned lunar landing before 1970 the program was accelerated. Despite setbacks in systems development and the loss of three astronauts due to a fire during ground testing, on 20 July 1969 Neil Armstrong, the Commander of Apollo 11, became the first human to set foot on the Moon. Although budget cuts forced the cancellation of several planned landings and an ambitious post-Apollo lunar exploration program, six missions followed Apollo 11 and five landed successfully. For a complete listing of Apollo Program launches, see Appendix 4. Materials in this subseries are grouped by topic. Unless otherwise noted, within each subseries documents are arranged chronologically by study.

Subseries III.D.3.b. Lunar Landing Research Vehicle (LLRV)

The Lunar Landing Research Vehicle (LLRV) was designed by Bell Aerospace as a free-flight simulator to investigate piloting and operational problems involved in lunar landing approach and takeoff. To simulate lunar atmosphere and gravity the LLRV compensated for aerodynamic drag and the higher gravity of earth by vectoring the thrust from the single turbofan engine and using rockets to balance five-sixths of the weight of the vehicle.

Subseries III.D.3.e.2. Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP)

The Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) was a self-contained experiment package to be placed on the lunar surface by the Apollo astronauts. Each ALSEP package contained a number of scientific instruments, a power supply, and telemetry equipment to allow the package to function after the astronauts had left the surface. In order to reduce the astronaut workload on the first lunar landing mission, Apollo 11 carried a simplified ALSEP called the Early Apollo Scientific Experiments Package (EASEP), which contained only two experiment packages. Subsequent missions carried ALSEP units consisting of four individual experiment packages drawn from the eight Apollo lunar surface experiments.

This subseries consists of general documentation for the ALSEP/EASEP equipment. For documents relating to ALSEP/EASEP as equipment for a specific Apollo mission, see subseries III.D.3.h.3. (Apollo/Saturn V Launches) under the specific mission designation. Following the general material, arranged chronologically, documents pertaining to specific ALSEP units are arranged by unit number.

Subseries III.D.3.f. Apollo Program Spacecraft

The Apollo program utilized two manned spacecraft: the Apollo Command-Service Module (CSM), which was the main spacecraft during the earth-orbital and earth-moon/moon-earth transfer phases of the mission, and the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM, later simplified to "Lunar Module," LM), which was utilized during the lunar descent/ascent phases of the mission.

This subseries consists of documentation for both the Apollo CSM and LM except for materials relating to the guidance and navigation subsystems, for which see subseries III.D.3.c. (Guidance and Navigation), above. The materials in this subseries are organized by topic. Unless otherwise noted documents are arranged chronologically by study within each subseries.

Subseries III.D.3.h. Apollo Launches

Apollo missions were designated primarily by launch vehicle. A- series launches (A-001 through A-004) were test launches of boiler plate Apollo capsules on Little Joe II boosters to test the Apollo Launch Escape System (LES). Two A- series launches (A-101 and A-102) were also Saturn I vehicle development launches SA-6 and SA-7, respectively; information relating to these launches is filed under Launch Vehicle Programs - Saturn Program Development Launches - SA-6 or -SA-7 (subseries II.B.7.e.3. or II.B.7.e.4., respectively). All Apollo/Saturn IB launches were designated in the AS-200 series (AS-201 through AS-205), while all Apollo/Saturn V launches were designated in the AS-500 series (AS-501 through AS-512). In both cases the launch numbers were identical to the vehicle number of the Saturn launch vehicle used (SA-201 through SA-205 and SA-501 through SA-512). Beginning with AS-204, launches also received Apollo mission numbers. For a complete listing of all SA- (Saturn development) and AS- (Apollo/Saturn) launches, as well as a listing of launch designations and Apollo mission designations, see Appendix 4.

This subseries consists of documentation for the various Apollo program missions as actually flown. For documentation on the missions as planned, see subseries III.D.3.g.3. (Mission Plans).

Subseries III.D.3.h.2.e. Apollo Launches - AS-204 (Apollo 1)

AS-204, later designated Apollo 1, was to be the first manned Apollo/Saturn launch in early 1967. A fire started in the command module during a simulated countdown on 27 January 1967, killing astronauts Virgil I. Grissom, Edward H. White, and Roger B. Chaffee. The investigation of the accident and resulting design changes to the Apollo Command Module forced delays in the program launch schedule. Following the post-accident investigation the launch vehicle from AS-204 (Saturn IB SA-204) was reused to launch the unmanned Apollo 5 mission, which received the same launch designation (AS-204). Documents pertaining to both AS-204 launches or specifically to the cancelled AS-204/Apollo 1 mission are filed under subseries III.D.3.h.2.e. (AS-204 (Apollo 1)); documents which pertain only to the subsequent AS-204/Apollo 5 mission are filed under subseries III.D.3.h.2.f. (AS-204 (Apollo 5)).

Following launch on 16 July 1969, the three-man crew (Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr) traveled to the moon and established lunar orbit. On 20 July 1969, Armstrong and Aldrin descended to the lunar surface in the Sea of Tranquility to become the first humans to set foot on the moon. While on the surface they gathered 21kg of rock and soil samples, activated the Early Apollo Scientific Experiments Package (EASEP, see also subseries III.D.3.e.2.), and took numerous photographs. Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command module and conducted a series of orbital experiments. Armstrong and Aldrin remained on the surface for just over 21 hours before lifting off to rendezvous with Collins in orbit. The three men returned safely to earth on 24 July.

AS-507/Apollo 12 (Apollo mission H-1) was the second lunar landing mission planned in the Apollo program. Launched on 14 November 1969, the three-man crew (Charles Conrad, Jr, Richard F. Gordon, and Alan L. Bean) followed a mission plan similar to that of Apollo 11, although extra emphasis was placed on insuring spacecraft systems operations following a lightning strike on the vehicle during the launch from Kennedy Space Center. On 19 November 1969, Conrad and Bean descended to the lunar surface in the Ocean of Storms, achieving a precision landing 535 feet from Surveyor III, which had landed 21/2 years earlier. The astronauts conducted two extravehicular activities (EVAs) on the lunar surface, totaling nearly eight hours outside of the LM, during which they activated the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP, see also subseries III.D.3.e.2.), collected 34kg of lunar surface samples, and retrieved parts from the nearby Surveyor III spacecraft (one landing leg of the Surveyor spacecraft is now in the collection of the National Air and Space Museum). Gordon remained in lunar orbit in the command module and conducted a series of orbital experiments. Conrad and Bean remained on the surface for just over 31 hours before lifting off to rendezvous with Gordon in orbit. The three men returned safely to earth on 24 November.

AS-508/Apollo 13 (Apollo mission H-2) was the third lunar landing mission planned in the Apollo program. Launched on 11 April 1970, the three-man crew (James A. Lovell Jr., John L. Swigert Jr., and Fred W. Haise) were to follow a mission plan similar to those of Apollo 11 and 12, with Lovell and Haise landing in the Fra Mauro region of the moon. However, on 13 April 1970, with the spacecraft on its way to the moon some 56 hours after launch, a cryogenic oxygen tank in the service module exploded causing a loss of power, depleting the supply of breathing oxygen, and placing the crew in jeopardy. The lunar landing was aborted and sole aim of the mission became the safe return of the three astronauts. With the assistance of ground controllers the crew utilized the lunar module as a life boat until 17 April, when the three men returned safely to earth.

Subseries III.D.3.h.3.j. Apollo Launches - AS-509 (Apollo 14)

AS-509/Apollo 14 (Apollo mission H-3) was the fourth lunar landing mission planned in the Apollo program and the third to land on the moon. Launched on 31 January 1971, the three-man crew (Alan B. Shepard Jr., Stuart A. Roosa, and Edgar D. Mitchell) followed a normal Apollo trajectory to the moon, entering lunar orbit on 4 February 1971. While Roosa remained in lunar orbit conducting research, Shepard and Mitchell landed in the Fra Mauro region originally planned as the landing site for Apollo 13 to carry out various experiments, including the deployment of an ALSEP (see also subseries III.D.3.e.2.), during nine hours of EVA. After 33 hours on the surface, Shepard and Mitchell rejoined Roosa with 43kg of lunar samples. The three men returned safely to Earth on 9 February.

Subseries III.D.4.
Apollo Follow-On Programs

As originally planned the Apollo Program was an initial reconnaissance of the lunar surface to be followed by more intensive exploration of the moon and experimentation in lunar and Earth orbit. This second phase was to use the Apollo spacecraft system as its basis, with added capability provided by additional vehicles and technology. NASA initiated a series of studies in 1962 examining various aspects of the Apollo follow-on exploration/experimentation regime to be instituted in the late-1960s/early-1970s time frame. By late 1964 the various studies had been organized as the Apollo Extension System (AES).

AES still envisioned a combination of lunar surface, lunar orbit, and earth orbit missions lasting up to 120 days (six months). Geared toward utilizing Apollo-era hardware as much as possible, it examined the possibilities of using spent Saturn stages as orbital workshops (OWS) or lunar surface bases. In August 1965 AES was placed under the control of the Saturn/Apollo Applications Office and a month later was renamed the Apollo Applications Program (AAP).

Over the next several years AAP was progressively reduced in response to budget cuts. The lunar surface missions, as immediate follow-on to the Apollo landings, were the first missions to be cut. The earth orbital missions (OWS) were also pared back. In mid-1969 NASA inherited the food/diet and spacesuit contracts and the astronauts from the Defense Department's cancelled Manned Orbital Laboratory (MOL) program. Despite this addition, in July 1969 AAP was cut to a single OWS launch and three manned missions. In February 1970 the AAP program was renamed Skylab.

The material in this subseries relates to NASA studies conducted under AAP and its predecessors, both as an organized program and as separately-funded study contracts. Materials relating to early development work on Skylab systems and operations as well as materials relating to Skylab as named, are included with materials on earth orbital projects as subseries III.D.4.g. (Earth Orbital Program Studies/Skylab). For documents relating to NASA's post-Apollo programs, including the Manned Orbital Research Laboratory (MORL) and space station programs, see subseries III.D.5. (Space Station Programs). For documents relating to NASA's planned manned interplanetary program, including studies involving the use of Apollo and Saturn hardware for interplanetary missions, see subseries III.D.6. (Manned Interplanetary Concepts) The materials in this subseries are grouped into subseries by topic. Unless otherwise noted, documents are arranged chronologically by study within each subseries.

Subseries IV.E.3.b. Lunar Orbiter

The Lunar Orbiter project began as an alternative to a planned Surveyor (see subseries IV.E.3.j. below) orbital vehicle when launch vehicle development failures and the failures of the early Ranger probes (see subseries IV.E.3.f. below) placed both of those programs in doubt. Lunar Orbiter was intended to provide photographic data on possible Surveyor and Apollo landing sites as well as other data of interest to lunar scientists and Apollo program planners. All five Orbiters were successful and returned high-quality data in sufficient quantities that the project goals were met after three missions.

Subseries IV.E.3.f. Ranger

The Ranger program was intended to return data on the earth-moon environment by launching a spacecraft on a lunar intercept course, gathering data during the flight, and obtaining close-up television images of the lunar surface before spacecraft impact. Ranger Block I (Ranger 1 and 2) were planned as earth-orbital missions to test the spacecraft while Block II (Ranger 3, 4, and 5) were to be full lunar missions. Follow-on missions in Block III (Ranger 6 through 9), Block IV (Ranger 10+), and Block V (Ranger lander missions) were in planning stages when the failure of the missions in Blocks I and II caused NASA to cancel Blocks IV and V and drastically simplify Block III to include only TV imaging. Eventually Ranger 7, 8, and 9 succeeded in returning useful images. The material on the Ranger program is organized by block. Unless otherwise noted, documents within each subseries are arranged chronologically by study.
