I've not looked at this one yet, but from the title it has something to do with the Saturn V control systems.

Located a very interesting document dealing with the options for powering the LM during the proposed AAP lunar missions (Durations 1-14 days).

Covered are fuel cells, solar panels, batteries and a turbine powered by the left over fuel in the descent stage.

See: Electrical Power Systems Study for an Augmented Lunar Module (59pg, 5.4mb)

I have located some documentation dealing with the fuel cell shown in the attached illustration. It seems to have been considered as a power source for AAP missions.

AAP fuel cell program, phase 2 (160pg, 64mb)

I've finally managed to find some documentation on the hypergolic turbine proposed as a possible LM power source.

The hypergolic reciprocating engine electrical power system and its application to the lunar excursion module (58pg 16mb)

I've managed to turn up the G & N documentation on AS-204 & 205, the planned Apollo 1 & 2 flights, includes a list of navigation stars.

There seem to be two copies of it, I've downloaded the other copy. Turned out to be exactly the same as the doument I linked to above.

Information on what was going to be done on unflown missions (The original Apollo 14/15, Apollo 1) is rather thin on the ground even though I know that considerable planning must have gone into those missions... That said I've found some interesting material on Apollo 6 that I'm going through.

I have located two other AS-204(a) flight related documents.

1. Flight crew abort mode selection charts for AS-204a

2. Spacecraft Operational Abort and Alternate Mission Studies for AS-204A. Volume 1: Abort Studies

A North American/Rockwell study into the loads that would have been imposed if NASA had decided to de-orbit Skylab. The documents final appendix (Appendix E) includes the switch settings and commands input into the simulators CMC (A Raython 708 running Skylark 48).

The NTRS has had a major upload. It's going to take a while for the 'data mole' to fully sort out what has been added but here is one sample document:

Apollo guidance computer program block 1 /100/ and block 2 Final report, 25 Jul. - 31 Dec. 1969 (110 pg 66mb)

I have also seen one document with Apollo 19 in the abstract...

I'm still looking through it. There are 10 pages of on-line documents from June the 9th with 'Apollo' in the title to go through. The decision to eliminate the old 'pick a decade' means of searching and replacing it with 'enter date range' is really slowing things down.  But here are some more that looked interesting (Note: I'm away from my normal computer and have not looked at these yet):

1. Detailed crew procedures for powered flight evaluation of the translunar injection maneuver - Project Apollo (33pg, 9.4mb)

2. Apollo abort summary document Mission F /AS-505/106/ Final report (67pg, 24.1mb)

3. Preliminary backup abort procedures for aborts occurring during translunar injection - Project Apollo (25pg, 6.8mb)

Still slowly working through that big update from June 9.

One item I've found that could be very useful is a copy of the preliminary re-entry procedures for Apollo 7.

Apollo entry summary document - Mission C /SA-205, S/C-101/(88pg 48mb)

Another is a document discussing the results of simulated failures of two engines in the S-Ic stage during launch

An analysis of the performance capability and vehicle dynamics of the Saturn 5 launch vehicle for two-engine-out malfunctions. Project Apollo (51pg, 24mb)

Finally, a document dealing with entry requirements for Block I Apollo missions.

Entry corridor definition and SM/RCS deorbit requirements for Apollo block 1 earth orbit missions. Project Apollo (38pg 24mb)
