[i]The SL-R mission will utilize the next-in-line CSM and the corresponding Saturn IB Launch Vehicle as the rescue vehicle for the SL-1/SL-2 or SL-3 crew. The backup CSM and Saturn IB will be used as the rescue vehicle for the SL-4 crew.
The in-line and backup CSM/Launch Vehicle System shall continue in a normal state of launch readiness preparations for the nominal mission until a decision is made to proceed with SL-R space vehicle preparation; then, total systems preparations for launch readiness shall be conducted according to an accelerated schedule. For the in-line mission vehicle, the rescue field modification kit would be installed upon receipt of the rescue call; for the backup CSM (CSM 119)/Launch Vehicle (LV 209), the kit would be installed during the planned test and checkout flow.[/i]
