Abstract:

This test was initiated to determine if the heater blanket which is installed on the MB-1 Rocket Motor could be used to heat the MB-1 Rocket Motor throughout the winter months without detrimental effects to the heater blanket elements. The serviceability of the heater blanket was determined by subjecting two heater blankets to 70 volts, two heater blankets to 60 volts and two heater blankets to 50 volts. All heater blankets operated satisfactorily for seven months without failure. It is recommended that al bases on which temperatures drop below zero degree Fahrenheit be equipped with a variable power source and adequate connectors for supplying the required voltage to the MB-1 heater blankets.
