This volume contains information on the specific design aspects of the Feed Back device. No attempt has been made here to present a balanced picture. Only those items on which appreciable work has been done, or which are unique to the satellite application, are included. In some cases material has been abstracted from separate research memoranda (listed among the References) and is presented along with briefer discussions of relatively less important items.

These data do not always represent the best or even a completely consistent solution. Extensive use of subcontracted studies, some of which are still in progress, has made complete, continued integration impossible. In addition, future research and development effort will disclose new ideas and new problems requiring study.

However, the information presented should be of value to other investigators and should save them the effort of covering the same ground.

Volume II covers three main topics: The Vehicle, Ground Operations, and Other Satellite Applications.
