Abstract : Data from successful static firing of Rocket Motor X254, F-25, after 26 months of storage and performance histories of X248 and X254 rocket motors successfully fired after storage periods in excess of 18 months are reported. These data are used as a basis for recommending that the current service life (18 months) of X248 and x254 motors be extended to 36 and 24 months, respectively. (Author)
