Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Maps
This page serves as a repository for Cape Canaveral Air Force Station maps.
This map, dated 21 June 1962, shows NASA Launch Operations Center (today known as the Kennedy Space Center) space utilization at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Highlights on the map include the Mercury Mission Control Center; the Industrial Area; LC-37 and LC-34, used for Saturn I (and, later, Saturn IB launches); Launch Complex 14, an Atlas missile pad, from Mercury-Atlas and later Gemini Agena Target Vehicle missions were launched; Launch Complex 12, another Atlas pad, from which various satellites and lunar probes were launched; Launch Complex 36, which launched Atlas-Centaur vehicles; Launch Complex 26, from which Explorer I, America's first satellite, was launched; and LC-5/6, from which the Mercury-Redstone missions were launched.
Launch Complex 19, from which the Air Force test-launched Titan I and Titan II missiles, is shown on the map but not called out, as Project Gemini was not yet underway. From 1964 to 1966 (about two years after this map was published), NASA launched Gemini-Titan missions from LC-19.
This map, taken from a booklet from the first half of 1964 (when CCAFS was called Cape Kennedy Air Force Station), shows the route of a driving tour when it was open to the public.
Highlights on the map include the Mercury Mission Control Center; Hangar S; LC-37 and LC-34, labelled simply "Saturn"; Titan pads, including LC-19, from which the Gemini missions were launched; Atlas pads, including LC-14, from which the Mercury-Atlas missions were launched; the Cape Canaveral lighthouse, pads for Blue Scout, Thor, and Jupiter; and LC-5/6, from which the Mercury-Redstone missions were launched.
