Summary:
The Aviation Technical Manuals Collection contains over 40,000 original aviation technical manuals for aircraft, engines, aircraft components, and ground equipment.
Scope and Contents:
This collection contains over 40,000 original aviation technical manuals for aircraft, engines, aircraft components, and ground equipment. The bulk of the material consists of military technical manuals (United States Air Force and Navy) with some civil aviation manuals as well. The bulk of the manuals relate to American-built equipment, although some foreign types are included. Whenever feasible, revisions are maintained separate from the basic manual.
Biographical / Historical:
Manufacturers and operators of aircraft and equipment produce large numbers of manuals for their air and ground crews. These manuals generally cover all phases of operation, from assembling the newly-purchased aircraft, operation and maintenance of the equipment, to storage of the equipment. Manuals are updated (revised) as new procedures are developed or modifications are made to existing models. New subtypes generally receive new manuals, although subtypes with the same procedures are generally grouped into the same manual, with new models being added in revisions.

Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of technical manuals for the Nike-Ajax missile system. Most of the manuals cover the electronic, electrical, and guidance equipment for system testing and operation.
Biographical / Historical:
The Nike series missiles were surface-to-air missiles for point defense against aircraft and ballistic missiles. Development of the Nike-Ajax (SAM-A-7) began in 1945 at Bell Laboratories. The first Nike-Ajax site became operational in December 1953 and initial plans called for installations at forty major cities in the continental United States, as well as at U.S. installations in foreign countries. As deployed the Nike-Ajax consisted of a Douglas-built airframe and a Bell (Aerojet-General) powerplant guide by a Westinghouse radar guidance system. It was superseded by the more powerful Nike-Hercules (SAM-A-25) and Nike-Zeus and was phased out of the U.S. inventory by 1965.
