Abstract:

The objective of the demonstration test program was to confirm the validity of the new component designs by engine tests at both nominal and extreme Titan IIIM operating conditions without unnecessarily repeating the Titan II and Titan III qualification tests. The test program also served as a convenient vehicle for testing related items, not intrinsic to the engine system, such as the Martin POGO accumulators, gimbal actuators, flight instrumentation, and ground equipment. The planned program consisted of 30 tests, 15 on each of two engines.
