President Dwight D. Eisenhower visits the Eastern Test Range at Cape Canaveral, Fla. in 1960 as the Atlas D29 is being prepared for launch of MIDAS 1, part of the Weapon System 117L. The MIDAS program aimed at developing a satellite that would carry an infrared sensor to detect hostile ICBM launches. Although the first MIDAS satellite failed to achieve orbit in February 1960, a MIDAS satellite under a subsequent test program AFP461 was successfully launched on May 9, 1963. It operated long enough to detect nine missile launches, thereby contributing to the series of test flights which served to demonstrate the system's increasing reliability and longevity.
