Notes
Survey number HAER CO-75-G
Significance: The Titan propulsion system utilized a number of cryogenic gases and highly corrosive chemical compounds that could quickly destroy improperly designed valves, seals, filters, pumps and other parts. The Cold Flow Laboratory enabled engineers to subject critical propulsion system components to rigorous "cold" testing before attaching engines for test firing.
