- US Air Force updating launch range safety rules
- This will help the service modernise for new launch technologies
The US Air Force (USAF) is rewriting a number of its range safety regulations known as '127-1' to better embrace emerging launch technologies.
USAF spokesman Bryan Purtell said 5 May the service is rewriting Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) Manual 91-710: Range Safety User Requirements Manual, Air Force Command Range Safety Policies and Procedures; and AFSPC Manual 91-711: Launch Safety Requirements for AFSPC Organizations.
Both of these manuals, according to Purtell, are command manuals with instructions on how to implement instructions that are also being rewritten.
