This note is to inform everyone that the AS-502 spacecraft computer program ropes will be made precisely the same as those for AS-501. Specifically, it is MIT assembly Solarium 55. You recall Solarium 54 was our original AS-501 A-release, but it was necessary to make a modification in one of the rope modules to correct a scaling problem.
Cline Frasier was given the recommendation to direct Raytheon in accord- ance with this on January 6, and it is my understanding that he intended to have Raytheon begin rope manufacture for AS-502 immediately. He in- formed me that the manufacture of the AS-501 ropes will be completed by about January 12th.
