Abstract:

Picatinny Arsenal was assigned the responsibility for engineering support to HAWK Rocket Motor production contracts. As a result of the XM22E7 HAWK motor failing to pass qualification tests because of liner problems, the Picatinny engineering support role was limited to the status of monitoring the HAWK Rocket Motor production program. Many of the engineering changes proposed by the Rocket Motor contractor should have been implemented during the early motor development phase. It is possible that greater cost savings would have been realized if the motor changes were implemented in the early designs. As MICOM would directly procure HAWK Rocket Motors after the FY62 Buy, the Command planned on using its own engineering facilities to completely support the motor production programs. Author
