This was two months after the merger between The Martin Company (who designed and built the Titan I missile) and American-Marietta created Martin Marietta. One month later, a contract was drawn up and work started in Martin Marietta's plant in Baltimore. The first flight test took place on April 8th of 1964, when GLV-1 lifted off from Complex 19 and carried a Gemini spacecraft into orbit.
