Abstract:

A series of tests was conducted on the TE-M-388 Iroquois motor to determine bending characteristics and to investigate the effect of resonance, low temperature, and spin on the performance of the TE-M-388 motor. Tests were also conducted on the Apache and Cajun motors to determine if unstable burning could be induced. The test results show the performance capability of the TE-M-388 motor under all conditions described above and show that unstable burning could not be triggered on the Apache and Cajun motors under the conditions tested for.
