The integrate-transfer-launch (ITL) concept of assembly, checkout, transport, and launch of the Titan III vehicle at Cape Kennedy requires a unique facility and special handling and transportation equipment. The launch facility incorporates an entirely new concept for preparing a vehicle for launch. The handling and transportation equipment designed for use in the ITL system includes some that is common to the aerospace industry and some that is entirely new. This paper presents a description of the ITL facility and the ground handling and transportation equipment required to support the Titan III system.
