Abstract:

This report contains propellant test results from cartons of TP-H1011 bulk propellant representing LGM-30A and B First Stage Minuteman Motors. This report is the fourth time that a statistical approach has been used to analyze First Stage bulk carton propellant. It is the first time that propellant representing the LGM-30A and B Motors has been analyzed separately. Testing was accomplished in accordance with MMEMP Project M4178M-2MP-155P 73NE068. The purpose of testing was to determine and provide early warning of any serious degradation trends occurring in the propellant for service life predictions. An analysis of all parameters indicates that no potential problems are expected for at least two years past the oldest data point. Data stored in the GO85 System were plotted utilizing the IBM 360-65 Computer and CAL-COMP Plotter. The data range at any age can be found by suitable inquiry of the GO85 System.
