Thanks for pointing that out, I added the 2nd ASTP AOH to the wiki.

Cheers

Thanks,

I've just edited the page to make sure that the two copies are clearly identified & swapped the links so that the earlier revision goes first.

Found a couple of intersesting documents on the NTRS dealing with the Saturn Ic stage. Both appear to be equipment manuals.

1. S-IC intertank umbilical carrier and flight plate (2mb) The text does not appear to have scanned well but the diagrams are clear.

2. S-1C stage vertical internal access equipment technical manual: Installation information (8mb) Both text and diagrams have scanned well.

The latest (17/04/08) update to the NTRS has included several interesting documents, which are linked to below.

1. Command service module system handbook(1967)

2. Apollo operations handbook. Command and service module (spacecraft 012)(1966)

3. Revision 1 to the Apollo Mission G spacecraft reference trajectory. Volume 1 Reference mission profile (launched 14 August 1969)(1969)

4. Reference skylab flight plan, SL-1/SL-2, SL-3, and SL-4 (April 30, 1973 SL-1 launch)(1972)

Apollo material has been thin on the ground over the last few months at the NTRS, though it looks like more of the Apollo 13 report is being placed online.

However two interesting items came to light recently.

Firstly, Apollo mission techniques. Mission C retrofire and reentry. Volume 1: Techniques description, revision A (Sep 1968), which appears to be a planning document for the Apollo 7 mission, covering the re-entry phase of the flight.

Secondly, AS-206A preliminary L/V operational trajectory and guidance presettings (Nov, 1966), this is a planning document for what later became Apollo 5. This document dates from just after the decision was made not to have a boilerplate CSM top the AS-206A stack but rather the simple nosecone that was used on the operational flight.

Something that is potentially very useful has gone up on the NTRS. It is from 1974, and is entitled Apollo landing site exercise. I've read over the document and it's a student exercise on picking a landing site from maps/orbital photography.

See:http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19750005695_1975005695.pdf

(4mb).

Go here:

http://agentdc.uah.edu/WelcomePages/SplashPage1.aspx?cid=uahdc&targetLibPK=6014&lid=USSRC

and search for 'saturn 1b vehicle handbook'. It's split into vast numbers of individual PDF files, but what I've skimmed through so far looks interesting.

I got the URL from this forum thread about people making a very realistic Saturn V/CSM/LEM model for Celestica, which has various images and diagrams that might be of interest too:

And this one has something I've never seen before, with plans to separate the IU and SLA from the SIVB to use it as the basis for a free-flying experiment platform:

Lunar Module News Reference:

http://agentdc.uah.edu/homepages/dcfiles/USSRC/Apollo%20LEM%20General%20Reference_042707110751.pdf

I think the previous source URL I found for that had been deleted.

I've noticed that this has power consumption details for most systems in the LEM; I don't remember the same in the CSM equivalent.

Discovered that the NTRS has online something called the 'Space Flight Handbook'. 

The three part second volume covers lunar flight planning from 1965 to 1970. Lots of equations just begging to be turned into a spreadsheet.

1. SPACE FLIGHT HANDBOOKS. VOLUME 2- LUNAR FLIGHT HANDBOOK. PART 1 - BACKGROUND MATERIAL

2. SPACE FLIGHT HANDBOOKS. VOLUME 2- LUNAR FLIGHT HANDBOOK PART 2 - LUNAR MISSION PHASES

3. SPACE FLIGHT HANDBOOKS. VOLUME 2- LUNAR FLIGHT HANDBOOK. PART 3 - MISSION PLANNING

Documents discussing the locations of translunar injections from 1968.

Sadly only the 1st & 4th volumes are online.

1. Geographic loci of Apollo translunar injection burns and free return touchdown positions. Volume 1: February - April 1968(19.6mb)

2. Geographic loci of apollo translunar injection burns and free return touchdown positions. Volume 4: October - December 1968(98.2mb)

Glad you liked them, here's a couple of documents (from 1964) discussing the Saturn 5 LVDC and a further document from 1967 discussing possible modifications to the LVDC  for AAP.

1. Saturn 5 launch vehicle digital computer. Volume 1: General description and theory

2. Saturn 5 launch vehicle digital computer Volume 2: Maintenance data

3. Launch Vehicle Digital Computer (LVDC) requirements for the Apollo Applications Program
