The description "Atlas Test" is a little inaccurate since this wasn't an ICBM test, it was Atlas 75D with Midas 9. The flight was the last of the original Midas series and its success provided a little compensation after the program's repeated mission failures.

Atlas 75D sported several modifications designed to correct problems on previous launches, in particular the hydraulic rise-off disconnect heat shield, which had resulted in the loss of Midas 6 and 8 in addition to an Atlas ICBM test in early 1963. On those launches, the heat shield had broken off at liftoff, causing the rise-off disconnect valves to fail from radiated heat. The hydraulic fluid escaped from the Atlas, resulting in loss of engine gimbaling control and missile self-destruction. After these incidents, the heat shield was redesigned and SLV Atlases were equipped with check valves (ICBMs didn't get them).
