The Manned Spacecraft Center directed North American to design and develop an emergency parachute system for flight test vehicles.  These vehicles, both half-size and full-size, are required for Phase II-A of the Paraglider Development Program.  The Manned Spacecraft Center authorized North American to subcontract the emergency recovery system to the Radioplane Division of the Northrop Corporation.

The Marshall Space Flight Center composed a procurement schedule for the Agena target vehicles, to be delivered to the Gemini Project Office.
