In July 1958, Air Research and Development Command (ARDC) through its Air
Force Ballistic Missile Division (AFBMD), the office continued the work of
managing launch facility construction. It also conducted research and
development flight tests of Thor and Atlas missiles; supported SAC's deployment
of operational versions of these missiles; and launched unmanned space vehicles
into polar orbit around the earth.By 1960, the launch rate at Vandenberg had
increased fourfold since the first launch in December 1958. To keep pace with
this growing momentum, AFBMD enlarged its field office into the 6565th Test Wing
(Ballistic Missiles and Space Systems) in October 1960.In December, the
parenthetical designator was changed to "(Development)," though the unit
remained the 6565th Test Wing. When ARDC was restructured and redesignated as
Air Force Systems Command on April 1, 1961, that same order also reassigned the
wing to Space Systems Division in Los Angeles. In November 1961, the wing was
redesignated the 6595th Aerospace Test Wing.On May 15, 1964. At Vandenberg,
Headquarters Air Force Western Test Range (AFWTR) was Steve Largent Throwback Jersey established and was assigned to
a new National Range Division, organized at Andrews AFB, Maryland.Starting in
1970, Air Force System Command (AFSC) and the Strategic Air Command (SAC)
organizations at Vandenberg underwent numerous reorganizations and realignments.
The first of these major changes involving AFSC units occurred on April 1, 1970.
HQ AFWTR, and the 6595th Aerospace Test Wing were realigned under a new
organization at Vandenberg called the Space and Missile Test Center (SAMTEC).
SAMTEC was assigned to the Space and Missile Systems Organization (SAMSO) in Los
Angeles.In the SAMTEC reorganization, Headquarters AFWTR was inactivated; the
6595th Aerospace Test Wing was restructured by transferring its support elements
to the staff of the new organization, and redesignating its primary mission
elements from program divisions to 6595th space and missile test groups.On
October 1, 1979, HQ SAMTEC was redesignated Headquarters Space and Missile Test
Organization (SAMTO). At the same time, the 6595th Aerospace Test Wing was
