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 of 1961. This program was then extended to a ten year study and later continued indefinitely to assure that a deterioration in motor physical characteristics could be detected in time to take some corrective actions before the weapon system performance deteriorated below an acceptable level. This report covers only propellant data.
