Although the development of the SM-65 Atlas intercontinental ballistic missile did not commence until 1951, the "thin skin" tank, which had to be pressurised at all times, had been developed in the late forties for the Convair MX-774 missile.
The Atlas C was used for six flights between 23 December 1958 and 24 August 1959, none of which orbited a satellite but were for sub-orbital programmes to test the thin skinned fuel tanks and the radio command configuration.
The remainder of the Atlas D missiles were used as first stages in the Atlas configurations with the Agena, Able and Centaur upper stages although the actual disposition is not known.

The Advance Adapters "Atlas II" 3.8:1 Ultra low, "Atlas II" 4.3:1 Extreme low, and the Atlas "Highlander" 3.0:1 gear-driven transfer cases are the ultimate in gearing and strength.
The Atlas 3.8 is a good choice for the avid 4-wheeler, since this low gear ratio is ideal for moderate to some extreme rock crawling.
As the Atlas gained popularity and a rock solid reputation for strength, the owners of long wheelbase vehicles and vehicles with higher G.V.W. ratings began requesting this transfer case for offroad performance and reliability.

 Breeding Bird Atlas II Will Document Changes in Michigan's Bird Populations
As director of avian research at the Kalamazoo Nature Center for 35 years, Ray Adams, Jr., is one of the leading experts in the country when it comes to understanding the relative health and abundance of birds of the eastern United States.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources first identified the need for a breeding bird atlas in 1981, but it wasn’t until the inception of the state income tax checkoff for nongame wildlife that money was available to fund the project.
Such observations were the driving force for a second Michigan Breeding Bird Atlas, a six-year project again initiated by the DNR and coordinated by Adams that began in 2002 and will continue through 2007.

 Atlas Launch Vehicle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The Atlas IIAS is very similar in construction to the Atlas II/IIA with the notable exception of four strap on solid rocket motors manufactured by Thiokol that provide additional thrust at launch and during the first stage of flight.
Developed entirely by Lockheed Martin to compete in the commercial spacelift market, the Atlas III is very similar to the design of the Atlas II family of launch vehicles, but differs with several improvements.
Among these are a new Russian-design Atlas booster engine, additional lengthening of the Atlas stage, and a dual-engine stretched Centaur for the Atlas IIIB configuration (the likely configuration for the U.S. Government mission).
