Abstract:

This project was established to determine if the shelf life of the 14-DS-1000 Rocket Motor could be extended by establishing new low temperature limits. Samples ranging in age from 91 months to 116 months were brought in from field storage, inspected, temperature conditioned and static fired. Motors, conditioned at -30, -20, and -1 F produced an after-burning phenomenon. The 14-DS-1000 Rocket Motor M8 and MK 4 Mod 2 performed satisfactorily at -30 to -10 F during normal burning. It is recommended that the shelf life of this item be extended 10 years with firing temperature limits of -10 to 140 F. Author
