CANCELLATION ANALYSIS: DTC Test 73-11

 

DTC Test 73-11 was designed in response to Air Force and Pacific Command requirements, AF-6 and PA-11, to validate procedures for emergency destruction of MC-1 and TMU/28/B weapons. According to DTC FY 74 planning documentation, DTC Test 73-11 was projected to address these requirements in FY 73.1 FY 75 planning documentation pushed this to FY 74. There was also a parenthetical notation that DTC Test 73-11 fell under the revised research and development program I110F that included emergency weapons disposal.2 The Deseret Test Center, headquartered at Fort Douglas, Utah, closed in 1973, before DTC Test 73-11 could be conducted; the test is therefore presumed to have been cancelled.
