The first full scale test firing of an uncured propellant warm gas generator was accomplished. The test objective was to demonstrate a long duration firing of a 2000F flame temperature, double base uncured propellant. The propellant formulation was developed from an existing cured formulation by altering the ratio of certain chemical constituents. The test motor was a heavyweight reusable gas generator, the AFRPL 30-inch char motor. The test was considered to be very successful, with an 800 second duration, 300 psig average chamber pressure trace being produced. Author
