We have observed diffraction dissociation of KL0 mesons with a carbon target into the exclusive final states KS0, KS0, and KS0. The diffraction production cross section for these states is not strongly dependent on the incident energy, varying at most by 30% between 75 and 150 GeV. The mass distributions do not change appreciably as a function of laboratory energy. The ratio of the diffractive mass-threshold production of K*, KS0, KS0, and KS0 is compared with previously obtained lower-energy data.
