Abstract:

Testing was performed to determine the useful shelfservice life for LGM-30 Stage I Rocket Motors. A three year storage program for propellant and components was started in May 1961. The program was then extended to a ten-year study. The ten year porgram was continued to assure at least a two year extended life for propellant and components. This report covers propellant and case bond data. The malfunction of an environmental chanber and the burning of motors during dissection destroyed the component samples. Dissection of selected motors in the future should provide continued component testing.
