Project TRUMP concluded in February 1964

 On February 12 1964 Project TRUMP which stands for Target Radiation Measurement Program  concluded at Elgin Air Force Base, Florida finished its interim phase.

An official said " We have acquired more data per dollar in TRUMP than in any other probe borne radiation study".

The project investigated ICBM light intensity in the infrared and ultra violet regions. 

For the future TRUMP will continue the researches employing a more powerful booster rocket in place of the NIKE-JAVELIN used in the interim phase.
