Abstract:

This report presents data obtained periodically from propellant instruments and from thermocouples during a series of tests Phase I conducted with the instrumented First Stage Minuteman STV. The handling sequence included transporting the motor over a board course and tip-over tests. During tip-over tests the motor was conditioned to 84 F, transported to a cure pit silo in an open trailer, lifted from the horizontal to the vertical orientation nozzles down, lowered into the silo where it remained for about 45 hours, and returned to the horizontal orientation on the trailer. Valuable propellant response data were obtained.
