b. STE/ICE is used primarily with the vehicle electrical system. These tests cannot cover all possible troubles which may
occur. To obtain the maximum number of observed symptoms of the malfunction, question the vehicle crew.
Tests and Set-Up Procedures.
a. The STE/ICE testing capability that may be applied to the launcher are tests No. 51, 0-4000 PSIG Pressure Test
and No. 89, DC Voltage Teat.
b. STE/ICE set up and confidencc test (Tests No. 66/60) must be performed prior to performing any tests.
Description and Operation.
a. General. The following describes the operation of the STE/ICE system and contains detailed operating procedures.
