Systems, 1961 - 1970

 Sub-Group — Multiple Containers
Identifier: MSA 5, Series 1, Sub-Series 5, Sub-Group 2

Scope and Contents

The Systems files within the Apollo working files contain a series of technical documents that detail the design, operational procedures, and functional capabilities of all spacecraft and equipment utilized in the Apollo program. These include the Saturn V rocket, the Block II Command and Service Modules (CSM), and the Lunar Module (LM). Included here are blueprints, diagrams, handbooks, and manuals, as well as a collection of memos and working documents arranged by Neil Armstrong himself. Effort has been taken to preserve Armstrong's arrangement when at all possible and the materials listed with headings in [brackets] remain as Mr. Armstrong had stored them. Materials at the very end of the sub-group were not originally stored with the other systems related materials, but are clearly systems related and have therefore been placed there by the archives.
